Effectively converting and managing enterprise data enhances business agility, efficiency for CUSO members
Monett, MO /PRNewswire/ - Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Today, its ProfitStars® division, together with Member Driven Technologies (MDT), announced the successful migration of data from more than 45 client credit unions to Synergy Enterprise Content Management™ (ECM) using Enterprise Conversion Solutions™(ECS) to convert legacy document images and reports. Another 20 credit unions have also begun their conversion process.
Digital data has changed the way organizations optimize resources. Institutions need better ways to unify information and simplify access to that information on an enterprise level. They also need a secure, reliable way to convert their data without losing time, money, or potential business. As a CUSO committed to helping credit unions streamline operations, MDT knew it was time to deploy a new content management system − a significant undertaking.
MDT hosts and deploys the Symitar® Episys® core processing platform exclusively to nearly 100 client credit unions. The CUSO recently leveraged ECS to manage the conversion of legacy data to a modern content management system. ECS reduced manual processes and helped the credit unions ensure data integrity and security across their entire enterprise.
Larry Nichols, president and CEO of Member Driven Technologies, stated, "ProfitStars' track record for modern, flexible solutions, combined with the power of the Episys platform, has proven to be the right fit for our client credit unions. Our clients, which benefit from the strong partnership and collaboration between our companies, gain a trusted and modern technology infrastructure with a proven robust support system."
Synergy ECM integrates with existing technology platforms and business processes so that institutions can securely capture, store, retrieve, and distribute electronic documents, check images, and report data. The solution creates a secure, central document repository with immediate desktop delivery of archived documents to improve enterprise-wide productivity and support better-informed and timelier decisions.
Jim McCarthy, president and CEO of Portland, Oregon-based Trailhead Credit Union commented, "Implementing Synergy ECM as our new content management system has been incredibly smooth due to the high level of cooperation and organization between the ECS conversion experts and Member Driven Technologies."
Susan Setera, vice president of operations and IT at Farmington Hills, Michigan-based Community Choice Credit Union, added, "We are finding the Synergy ECM platform to be very user friendly. It allows us to quickly navigate and retrieve documents in a simple interface. Such an intuitive format will help ensure that our recently converted data is put to effective use. Our experience has been positive from the beginning, as ECS made the transition as seamless as possible."
Many credit unions have already realized the quantifiable benefits of transitioning to a modern content management system through ECS. Portland, Michigan-based Portland Federal Credit Union reported a dramatic reduction in auditor research; what once took hours to assemble can now be accomplished in less than 30 minutes. And, Sacramento, California-based First U.S. Community Credit Union reported that employees are raving about the increased speed of imaging at the teller line.
Tom Gosling, CEO of Bellco Federal Credit Union in Wyomissing, Pa., echoed these sentiments, "After struggling for years with an inferior imaging system that was unable to properly meet our needs, Synergy was a welcome change for our credit union. We are excited about the immediate benefits we've seen from the transition and those still to come in the future."
Russ Bernthal, president of ProfitStars, added, "Accuracy, efficiency, and quality control is of utmost importance to all financial institutions. Our valued partnership with MDT provides more credit unions with a strategic approach to effectively convert and manage enterprise-wide content. We are proud to support MDT's member credit unions with Enterprise Conversion Solutions and Synergy Enterprise Content Management to help them efficiently and securely manage their data while streamlining their operations."
