Waianae, HI (March 2013) -- West Oahu Community Federal Credit Union located in Waianae, Hawaii has converted its core processing system to FLEX for its uniquely designed embedded virtual server technology engineered in JAVA™. The system was chosen because of its proven ability to reduce system complexity and IT resources to less than half of today's industry standards. FLEX has offered innovative technology for all sized credit unions for over three decades. Today’s FLEX core solution is completely integrated and robust with unified solutions for both on-line and in-house technologies.
“Converting to new technology is not something a credit union does often. When it was apparent that we were in need of a core conversion for the future we found FLEX to offer the most innovative and simplified solution for our staff and members,” said John Furtado, President/CEO of West Oahu Community FCU. “We are up and running and continually find ways that FLEX improves our day to day operations by integrating key financial tools into our core system including Check21 and Mobile Banking.” West Oahu’s charter was established in 1949 and currently serves nearly 6000 members with $33 million in assets.
“We are very pleased to welcome West Oahu Community FCU to our family. Our core system is built around offering a one-stop solution for credit unions of all sizes. Because of this, each credit union on FLEX is offered personalized service to meet their unique system needs,” said Sean Holcomb, Senior Vice President of FLEX. “Our credit unions not only find cutting-edge integrated technology that is easy and expansive, but also find simplified operations as FLEX minimizes the need for third-party vendors, contracts, training and risk.”
In recent years, credit union industry personnel ranked FLEX first among competing vendors for customer satisfaction. FLEX now serves nearly 300 credit unions in locations across the country, including Alaska, Hawaii, and the Eastern Caribbean. The company enjoys established relationships with all regulatory agencies, corporate credit unions and major industry partners.
