Corelation expands into Maui signing Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union

SAN DIEGO, CA (July 1, 2020) — As the attractiveness to the KeyStone platform steadfastly grows for credit unions far and wide, Corelation continues to connect with leadership and staff onsite and at its headquarters in San Diego, CA. Onsite, in this case, is with Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union ($132.9 million assets; 13.350 members; Kahului, HI) located on the beautiful island of Maui. While Corelation has existing clients in the state, this partnership marks Corelation’s first client on the Hawaiian island nicknamed the “Valley Isle.”

In conjunction with this signing, Valley Isle Community FCU will celebrate its 80th anniversary this year. What better way to start a new decade than to embark on a core conversion journey. This will be the first in nearly 40 years for the credit union.

“There was a buzz about KeyStone amongst fellow CEOs that intrigued us to seek more information,” commended Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union President/CEO Trevor Tokishi. “We observed KeyStone in action at existing Corelation client sites and were impressed with the modern technology and system architecture. No other core has an open API like KeyStone’s API [KeyBridge] and its 24/7/365 uptime will be a tremendous benefit for our members and for our staff.”

Tokishi added, “This conversion will challenge us in different ways, but I am truly grateful for the partnership and collective efforts between the Corelation and Valley Isle teams. It is rewarding to witness our senior managers and team members be open-minded and willingly take on this huge endeavor for the benefit of our membership.”

Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union is scheduled to convert in May 2021.

“As our staff continues to grow, we are proud of how we, as an organization, demonstrate our passion for camaraderie, service, and innovative technology, all while having fun,” remarked Corelation President/CEO Theresa Benavidez. “It prides us even more to hear that our credit union partners recognize our efforts and we will strive to uphold our reputation, relationship, and results with Valley Isle Community Federal Credit Union.”
