CU*Answers, the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based cooperative CUSO, recently announced that an agreement had been executed with Honolulu-based Hawaii Central Federal Credit Union for core data processing and other strategic services. With its January 2019 conversion, the credit union will become the CUSO’s first Hawaii-based core data processing client.
When asked why they choose CU*Answers, Drake Tanabe, president/general manager of Hawaii Central FCU, replied: “After a lengthy search involving countless meetings and visiting of other credit unions, we were impressed with the suite of products and services that CU*Answers is able to provide. Their core system, CU*BASE, will allow our employees to better service our members through a feature rich, user-friendly interface. As a CUSO, they share the same values and beliefs we do, and we look forward to providing our members with state-of-the-art quality products and services for many years to come.”
