Affinity Plus infographic showcases scope and impact of three-year technology improvement project

ST PAUL, MN (December 17, 2018) — Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union culminated three years of work in early October with the implementation of a new financial core processing system.

It was one of seven systems implemented to establish a new technology foundation to serve the credit union and its more than 195,000 members for decades to come, according to Dave Larson, Affinity Plus President/CEO.

The entire project was one of the credit union’s largest projects in the past 20 years, if not ever, Larson noted.

Many of the systems – like the new real-estate loan-origination system, consumer loan-origination system and accounting system, among others – are behind the scenes. However, all were chosen because of their ability to provide Affinity Plus employees the best tools to serve members’ daily banking needs and larger financial goals.

“Our entire goal was to be more effective, efficient and responsive to our members,” Larson said.

The most-visible component of this three-year journey, he said, likely was the implementation in April 2018 of the credit union’s new digital-banking platform. It included a new mobile-banking app and online banking. Both have resulted in strong increases in members using digital banking.

As 2018 draws to a close, Affinity Plus created an infographic that shows at a glance the scope and impact of the project. It also includes a URL to a blog post on the credit union’s website.
