Cherokee Strip Credit Union signs core data processing contract with CU*Answers

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (April 2, 2018) — CU*Answers announced that $70M Ponca City, Oklahoma-based Cherokee Strip Credit Union (CSCU) recently executed a contract to change its existing core data processing platform to the CU*Answers CU*BASE® system, the CUSO’s flagship solution.

CSCU CEO Johnny O’Hare noted that while their legacy system had served them well in the past, a more collaborative and integrated solution was needed to move the credit union forward. “We were looking for a holistic platform that was more intuitive by design, and therefore easier to learn and easier to use by both associate and member. Building consistency in look and feel across multiple touchpoints is very important to us, as well as delivering more robust account information when and where members want it, and we felt that CU*Answers best delivered on these promises to enhance and simplify our member experience.”

Cherokee Strip Credit Union is slated for a December 1st, 2018 conversion, and will bring approximately 9,500 additional members into the growing CU*Answers family.
