Baxter Credit Union signs with ViClarity for enterprise risk management

Illinois-based credit union to utilize compliance and vendor management tools

NAPERVILLE, IL (February 12, 2015) — Financial Abatement Services Inc. (FASI), an affiliate and distributor of Lending Solutions Incorporated (LSI), is excited to announce that Baxter Credit Union (BCU) has implemented ViClarity’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) solution. The credit union will be using ViClarity’s web-based software in the areas of risk, compliance, and vendor management tracking.

ViClarity’s Enterprise Risk Management solution allows its clients to track and monitor performance and compliance in their organizations. The tool can be used to gather and verify performance/compliance data and enables managers to view performance in real time on a single user- friendly dashboard. The system tracks and enables the ongoing monitoring of key strategic, operational or compliance objectives/ metrics and effectively drives accountability at different levels of management within the organization. The software maintains a full trail of all activities for audit purposes and provides robust reporting.

“The management of BCU’s existing vendor review process has always been a manual process using a number of non-integrated systems. As a result, the annual review process was a time- consuming undertaking to manage,” stated Cheryl Turner, BCU vendor management and contracts administrator. “The introduction of the ViClarity ERM solution has drastically improved my ability to efficiently manage BCU’s vendor management program for existing and new vendors. The software is simple to use, customizable and implementation took no more than a few weeks.”

CJ Presto, Chief Financial Officer of BCU, adds, “We’re excited about all of the tools that the ViClarity solution brings to BCU. The benefits of enhanced accountability and tracking are especially significant in today’s business environment.”

“Financial institutions are under enormous pressure to manage risk and compliance in the emerging and ever-changing regulatory environment,” states Mark Johnson Chairman of Lending Solutions and Director for FASI. “This software provides the institutions with a central depository which can manage all areas of their business while increasing productivity and accountability, while minimizing overall risk.”

John Ogie Sheehy, Founder & CEO of ViClarity Ltd. said, “Effective management of risk and compliance in financial institutions has never been more critical and does not have to be a complicated or manual process. Simplicity is the key to success and we strive to provide a simple yet powerful tool to enable organizations to do this.”

FASI/LSI and ViClarity will be conducting a series of live webinars over the next month on the following dates: March 4, March 12, April 1, and April 7 for credit unions that are interested in learning more about the solution. To sign up for the webinars, contact Luke Kolquist at or 800-937-4249 ext. 3303. ViClarity will also be represented at the CUNA Government Affairs Conference (GAC) in booth 673.
