CU*South signs core processing agreement with Calhoun-Liberty Employees Credit Union

FAIRHOPE, AL (March 10, 2015) — Calhoun-Liberty Employees CU (CLECU) is the latest Florida credit union to select CU*South as its core processing and services partner. With a conversion scheduled for later this spring, CU*South and Calhoun-Liberty Employees CU are already busy planning this exciting transition.

Based in the Florida panhandle southwest of Tallahassee, CLECU serves the residents of Calhoun and Liberty counties. The credit union operates two branches, one on each side of the time line between the Eastern and Central zones.

“It was the references from other credit unions that led us to believe CU*South will help us best serve our members,” said CLECU’s CEO Thomas Flowers.

“We’re excited to welcome Calhoun-Liberty Employees CU into our CUSO network,” added CU*South CEO Leo Vaulin. “We’re building a collaborative software and service model that’s owned by credit unions and was designed by credit unions. I’m very happy to hear that our credit union peers recommended us to Mr. Flowers; and I respect the important role that CLECU plays in the lives of the citizens of Liberty and Calhoun counties.”

With only a few months before conversion, Mr. Flowers and his team are readily anticipating the change.

“We’ve been using the same core for almost 30 years,” said Mr. Flowers. “We’re looking forward to utilizing the entire platform’s functionality and moving from a bag phone era to the iPhone 6 era. As technology has grown and improved, we feel that we should offer that same level of fast, quick and cost-effective service to our membership.”
