We at Sharetec are pleased to announce that four of our long-time customers have entered their 25th year as users of our innovative core processing solution.

As one of the top industry leaders in the development of credit union software, Sharetec proudly recognizes these four valued customers as they reach their 25th-year milestone in 2019. Freestone Credit Union and Waco Federal Credit Union located in Texas, All Saints Federal Credit Union in Ohio, and Generations Federal Credit Union in Indiana join Sharetec in celebrating this great accomplishment, as they reflect on the many benefits of their lengthy partnership with us.

DeAnne Harris, President of Freestone Credit Union, comments, “It’s been a pleasure working with Sharetec for 25 years. The service has always been great and the staff is very friendly and available when they are needed. The upgrades get better each year, offering more products and services to help our credit union succeed. Here’s to another 25 years!”

Connie Straight, All Saints Federal Credit Union, marvels at her 25-year career with the credit union and how Sharetec has evolved over the years to meet their changing needs. “All Saints went live with the Sharetec Core Processing solution three weeks after my start date. We immediately saw how adaptable the system was to the needs of our credit union and members. Today, I am so impressed with how far along the software has come, especially in regards to its cutting-edge technology, which delivers so many advanced features. Sharetec has not only provided us with the necessary efficiencies and functionality, but it has allowed our staff to focus on what is most important to our credit union—and that’s our members.”

Sharetec prides itself on meeting the needs of its credit unions and making sure they have the tools and technology to succeed in this competitive industry,” comments Matt Isger, Regional Director for Sharetec.

Sharetec looks forward to continuing to support the success of its current customers and growing to meet the needs of other credit unions across the country and around the globe. Congratulations to all of our 25-year customers!

Now is the time for credit unions to formulate and implement a digital strategy. The Sharetec core processing platform provides all the tools and stability for a successful implementation.

For credit unions a digital strategy is about member engagement through the use of technology. It leverages online channels to present your credit union as the right financial institution for their needs. Effective social media campaigns, remote e-services, and mobile banking are all technologies found at the core of an effective digital strategy.

What is a digital strategy?
A well formulated digital strategy is a plan to use technology to streamline online services and utilize digital platforms to better communicate with members. As such credit unions should first go through a discovery phase to set goals, prioritize services, and establish an implementation schedule. Understanding gaps in remote e-services, surveying member demographics, looking over online channel usage, and assessing current technology infrastructure will all play important roles in that planning and implementation of a robust digital strategy.

Mobile and Remote Member Services
Mobile banking and remote e-services that integrate tightly into the core make up a considerable part of a digital platform.  Primary goals for credit unions to focus on should include:

     - Having a cohesive online experience through channels like home and mobile banking

     - Providing online applications for an end-to-end lending experience

     - Eservices to facilitate the signing of applications and other documents remotely

     - Having the ability to quickly and easily move external accounts to the credit union

Sharetec Does it Best
Sharetec has strategically chosen technology to better position credit unions for the shift to digital services. The Sharetec core processing platform tightly integrates with best of breed providers of lending services, remote e-Services (Remote Deposit Capture, Bill Pay, etc.), digital account switching platforms, and many others. Our flexible API is a key ingredient in extending services that will help credit unions create a digital strategy that is right for their institution and membership.
