MONETT, Mo., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® (NASDAQ: JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its Symitar® division announced today that AltaOne Federal Credit Union has selected the Symitar Episys® core system for in-house processing.
Ridgecrest, Calif.-based AltaOne Federal Credit Union sought a core partner that could keep pace with its own growth goals, efficiency requirements and product delivery timeline. AltaOne identified Episys as the system best suited to support the credit union in these areas. Episys easily integrates with third-party systems and offers progressive credit unions the ability to tailor the system to their unique needs, which will enable AltaOne to discover untapped efficiencies and continue diversifying its member-facing offerings at a competitive rate.
Robert M. Boland, president and CEO for AltaOne, said, "Our existing core system is aging and unable to keep pace with the direction our credit union is going. We see how Symitar itself is growing, always innovating and caring for its credit unions. We are comfortable going into this conversion and confident that we have found a strategic relationship that will not only provide the solutions and service we need in the short term, but deliver a sophisticated, flexible core experience well into the future. Symitar has a history of delivering on its commitments."
Boland noted that the AltaOne team is excited about Symitar's technology roadmap, including its transition to a truly relational database. The credit union also understands that with Episys, it gains the ability to select the best of third-party systems and implement them in a completely integrated environment. Boland added that "Episys will help us capitalize on opportunities that we know are being missed. And, our IT team will get to stretch its legs and execute new projects at a level that's expected for our credit union."
Ted Bilke, president of Symitar, added, "The Episys platform provides AltaOne unmatched scalability, integration, and the agility to go to market faster with solutions that differentiate the credit union in the markets it serves. We expect the credit union's employees and members to notice the Symitar difference. Episys is proven to bolster growth at credit unions of all sizes. Our longevity is evidence of our ability to adapt and drive positive changes for our clients as they adopt relevant technologies and respond to their members' service and support expectations."
