Worker’s Credit Union picks Fusion Phoenix for new core system
Massachusetts-based Worker’s Credit Union has selected Finastra and its Fusion Phoenix core banking solution.
Workers CU has also selected a handful of ancillary systems, including Fusion MortgageBot, Fusion ECM, Fusion Originate, Fusion Analytics, and Fusion Treasury Essential.
Finastra says this is the first time a US credit union has selected its Treasury Essential solution, and hails Worker’s CU as a “visionary”.
Founded in 1914, Worker’s Credit Union has around 110,000 members and total assets of around $2 billion.
Headquartered in Littleton, Massachusetts, it serves communities across the Bay State.
President and CEO Doug Petersen says his firm has a “unique commitment to serving our members as they work toward their financial goals”.
He adds: “With Fusion Phoenix, bringing new services to market will be quicker and easier, and the core will be able to grow with our needs as our membership continues to expand.”
Fusion Phoenix has a growing number of US banks and credit unions on its books. This includes First National Bank of Manchester, Climate First Bank, Iowa-based Central State Bank, and Wisconsin’s The Peoples Community Bank.
“The decision to switch core vendors is never easy,” says Chris Zingo, senior vice president and general manager for Americas field operations at Finastra.
“By adding other products from Finastra — addressing lending mortgage and treasury needs — Workers Credit Union [is] positioning itself to expand into new lines of business and realise new revenue streams.”
