River Community CU Selects Sharetec Over Six Other Core Systems


LINO LAKES, MN – Sharetec, one of the fastest growing core systems, is pleased to announce River Community Credit Union (CU) in Ottumwa, IA, has selected Sharetec to be their next core system. Sharetec was chosen after an extensive review of six other core systems.

Nate Bissell, CEO of River Community CU, comments, “After being with our current core for many years we were ready to make the change to Sharetec after seeing all of the abilities we have been missing! We are excited to be able to bring our members the technology they have been wanting and to increase their ability to bank on their terms.”

Why Sharetec?

Following their extensive review, River Community CU’s decision to select Sharetec also came from multiple demonstrations and a number of phone calls to Sharetec customers. The credit union will be taking advantage of Sharetec products like Online Member Services, ACH Origination, and Remote Deposit Capture. This will help them increase their membership growth and offerings to their members.

Carrie Heck, Account Relationship Manager for Sharetec, comments, “River Community was very thorough in their search for a new core platform. We know how vital it is for credit unions to succeed in this competitive industry, which is why we offer the most innovative solutions backed by strong service and support all with a return on investment (ROI) that credit unions can appreciate. We are proud to welcome the River Community staff to our Sharetec family.”

About River Community Credit Union

River Community Credit Union has been serving its members since 1928. In the beginning, eleven men started the Credit Union with C J Morrow as its Founder. The Credit Union was open only to the U.S. Postal Service workers and was known as the Ottumwa Postal Employees Credit Union. Because of sound management and excellent service other small companies and businesses joined in. Due to the ever-increasing satisfied members, Ottumwa Postal Employees Credit Union opened to the surrounding communities and changed its name to River Community Credit Union in 2000. In 2002, River Community Credit Union was very pleased to welcome the merger of the Ottumwa Railroad Employees Credit Union.
