Members “First” Community Credit Union
wanted to increase their non-interest income while improving member relations. Implementing Sharetec's Tiered Courtesy Pay feature provides the credit union with a risk-based fee structure. This gives them the ability to offset the cost of processing and monitoring overdrafts, which in turn, provides a cushion (revenue stream) that is used to offset potential loses. The results - 11% increase in revenue, reduced fee reversals and improved member relations.

This effort has catapulted Members "First" Community Credit Union into the top 1% ROA  of all credit unions in the country. To learn more about Sharetec's Tiered Courtesy Pay feature click here

St Anniversary
We would like to extend our congratulations and best wishes to the following two Sharetec credit unions, who have been successfully utilizing our core processing solution for 15 years and 25 years respectively:

  • Educational Community Alliance Credit Union based in Toledo, Ohio—since January 2005

  • Keystone United Methodist Credit Union of Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania—since January 1995

Educational Community Alliance (ECA) Credit Union is celebrating 15 years of using the Sharetec solution. The credit union first opened its doors in 1934 as Toledo Teachers Credit Union, later evolving to help Toledo Public School employees, retirees and families succeed financially. They later expanded its membership to include anyone in the education industry in Toledo along with their family members. ECA has grown from offering basic financial services to providing a full suite of products and online/mobile convenience services. In addition to their local branch, they are proud to say that they have nearly 5,500 branches across the country through their participation in the Shared Branching network.

Our friends at Keystone United Methodist Federal Credit Union have been benefiting from Sharetec for 25 years. They were first formed in 1953 by a group of pastors as a means of pooling their resources to provide loans they wouldn’t otherwise have been able to obtain. Years later, Keystone is still providing loans and so much more including online banking, mobile banking, IRAs, online bill pay, electronic statements and many other services. Not only do they serve the financial needs of United Methodist (UM) clergy, the credit union is available to all UMs and their family members, as well as UM churches and organizations throughout the Western Pennsylvania Conference.

We are happy that these financial institutions are continuing to grow and prosper, and extremely pleased that Sharetec is helping them reach new levels of efficiency, for both members and employees. Congratulations to you both. We wish you many more years of prosperity and success!

HappyNewYear

The New Year can certainly inspire one to dream big, take on tasks with renewed vigor and set fresh goals for ourselves, both professionally and personally. As credit unions set their goals and take measures to increase their success in 2020, they know that a large part of this success depends on how well they can meet their members’ diverse needs.

One way to satisfy your members’ needs is through Sharetec’s Shared Branching solution. As your members make their plans for the New Year, it is likely that they will be traveling away from home with a need to access their accounts. Shared Branching offers your members the personal service that they've come to expect from your credit union—whether they are across town or 1,000 miles away from home.  And this solution goes far beyond an ATM by offering your members access to fully-staffed offices with real people to serve their needs.  Shared Branching allows a member service representative to automatically link to your members’ accounts at your credit union, enabling them to make as many deposit, withdrawal, transfer, or loan payment transactions as they wish.

Provide your members with a secure safety net as they head off on their 2020 travels and beyond. With the Shared Branching solution, Sharetec ensures that members can conduct their credit union business as usual, no matter where the New Year may take them.
