The capabilities of the PhoenixEFE solution span the functions of the financial institution’s entire enterprise.
BAFS plans to leverage the modern, open Microsoft®-centric architecture of PhoenixEFE Core to support its continued growth and improve interface flexibility. Additionally, the strong business lending capabilities of PhoenixEFE Core and tight integration with existing channel solutions from Harland Financial Solutions will enable BAFS to operate more efficiently and effectively.
“As we continue to grow, it’s important that our technology keeps pace with meeting the demands of our member credit unions. PhoenixEFE Core, integrated with the existing lending and content management solutions we use from Harland Financial Solutions, will help us better deliver on our core mission of providing our member credit unions with a broad array of cost-effective, high quality financial services designed to the specific needs of business members,” said Ricky Guillot, president and CEO of BAFS. “Given our existing relationship with Harland Financial Solutions, we are confident that they are the right partner to support our ongoing growth.”
