PRESS RELEASE
March 22, 2018 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, core technology made simple, announces Sharetec Credit Unions have great success employing their comprehensive training system.

Sharetec offers a comprehensive training system that is built to fit each credit union in the most efficient way possible. Lifelong learning is one of the best ways to grow and Sharetec believes this is equally true for making the most out of all Sharetec has to offer. Credit union staff needs to be trained properly to take advantage of each product and service that is provided.

”Our new lending staff received individualized training and were able to work through a loan from start to finish on the demo site without the worry of a member sitting in front of them. The tips and tricks we received along the way gave them the confidence they needed. When completing their training, the staff felt like they had a very strong understanding of the Loans Workspace that would have taken weeks of training in our office,” comments Jenny Kutz, Manager of Members First Credit Union.

Don Hill, CEO of Memorial Health Credit Union adds, “Many of our staff are more visual learners, so the training videos Sharetec has on their online portal have helped our staff a great deal. We can watch the video for something specific as we do it and pause the video as we follow along. These videos are a great resource for everyone to get the most out of all Sharetec has to offer for our growth.”

Free ongoing training at one of the Sharetec offices not only provides CUs with the information they need to succeed, but it also gives each staff member the confidence they are using Sharetec to the best of their knowledge. To read more, visit us www.sharetec.com/case-studies.

PRESS RELEASE
April 5, 2018 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, one of the fastest growing core systems that offers the technology of simplicity, announces that Latrobe Area Hospital Federal Credit Union of Latrobe, Pennsylvania, has made the decision to implement Sharetec as their new core processing solution.

Latrobe was seeking to improve its member facing technology, save time, lower costs and improve partnerships. To meet their diverse needs, Dan Miller, Vice President, Sharetec, communicated the outstanding benefits that the Sharetec solution would provide, and how it would prove to be advantageous for both their financial institution and their expanding membership.

"During the discovery process, Latrobe's decision makers became thoroughly convinced that Sharetec offered the best and most complete solution to meet their needs," remarked Dan. "They viewed our solution as superior to what our competitors were offering, given our better member facing technology, as well as additional features that would save them significant time and money."

Upon recognizing the many advanced features and benefits, Latrobe selected Sharetec. They have already made a successful conversion to our core processor and are immediately seeing vast improvements in efficiency for both employees and their membership.

According to Latrobe's CEO, Greg Sisitki, their previous core processing system was very expensive and prevented them from expanding to all the new and innovative technology services. Sharetec enabled them to provide electronic services and 24/7 access through their mobile app and bill pay services, for less than than their original system without those services.

"Every 'module' is in one place or one system; our old system was in pieces with different passwords and logins, which made things very difficult when it came to the efficiency of the staff," stated Greg.

"Sharetec's conversion process and installation team helped us though the process of conversion every step of the way," he added.

About Latrobe Area Hospital Federal Credit Union
Since 1964, Latrobe Area Hospital Federal Credit Union has stood as a leader in the credit union industry. Located in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, the institution's assets have climbed to $11 million and they currently serve 1,996 members.

PRESS RELEASE
February 27, 2018 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec System, core technology made simple, shares the success of two credit unions after making the switch to Sharetec.

Making the decision to switch core system providers can be a challenge for many credit unions. The impact on the credit union can be significant and seeing the return on investment takes time and effort. However, many Sharetec Credit Unions have had great success in their conversion to Sharetec, and as a result, they have improved their growth and membership offerings. Due to efficiencies that a Sharetec solution provides, many credit unions see a decrease in their staff count as well.

Since making the switch to Sharetec, Ball State FCU in Muncie, IN, has decreased their staff count from 47 employees to 35 employees, while growing their assets an additional $30 million. Randy Glassburn, President, comments, “With a more efficient core and remote services becoming more popular each day, we have seen a significant reduction in foot traffic within the credit union office. Much of that can be attributed to the conversion to Sharetec, leaving behind our old, antiquated core system.”

Before making the switch to Sharetec, Andover FCU in MA had 9 employees and since converting they have reduced that number to 5 employees and doubled their assets. “Sharetec gave us the opportunity to be more efficient. This has had a huge impact on how we manage our daily operations, allowing us to put that savings elsewhere,” comments Lisa Morelli, Manager of Andover FCU.

“In any economy, the ability for credit unions to dramatically lower their labor costs, allowing their income & operating ratios to look so much better, is welcoming news for our customers,” comments Matt Isger, Regional Director for Sharetec System.
