1st United Credit Union picks Symitar’s Episys system
California-based 1st United Credit Union has selected the Episys core processing system from Jack Henry & Associates’s Symitar division.
Symitar says the credit union picked Episys because its current core could not offer flexibility and customisation.
Joanna Uhl, chief information officer at 1st United, says the vendor has the “experience, stability and proven conversion success” to help her firm.
“We know that Jack Henry will continue to invest in moving its platforms forward, taking us with them and never letting any feature functionality go stale.”
The $1.2 billion-asset credit union will run its core through Jack Henry’s private cloud environment. It will also create and share custom core content using Jack Henry’s PowerOn Marketplace.
1st United also chose the Banno Digital Platform, deployed via Jack Henry’s partnership with Member Driven Technologies (MDT).
“There is a unique passion and foresight poured into this digital suite,” says Uhl.
“We have been trying to get more members engaged with us through various remote services while still providing the personal service we have become known for, and the availability of this platform will help advance that goal.”
Founded in 1932, 1st United Credit Union holds around $1.12 billion in assets and serves 62,840 members.
