Matthew Schondek, President & CEO of Fall River Municipal Credit Union, “I anticipate that the conversion will allow the credit union staff to work more efficiently and improve the member experiences.  In seeking a core processor, we were cognizant of the need to offer passbooks to our current membership. Synergent will support the passbook accounts while providing improvements in the on-line and bill pay features needed to attract newer members who expect the latest technology. Fall River Municipal Credit union has been serving the community for over 80 years, this system upgrade is just one more step on our continued quest to support our membership and welcome new members with the products and services they expect from today’s institutions.”
