and Data Processors

Are you considering a data processor switch? If so, there are several things to consider in order to ensure the process goes smoothly. Following these steps will make the transition efficient and minimize any headaches.

Three Questions for Data Migration Success

So you are planning a switch and need to know where to start? Answering these three questions is a good start.

When? Timeline is an important matter to consider. You never want to wait until it is close to the time for your contract to expire. Waiting gives the vendor all the power. Ultimately, it creates a scenario where the credit union may decide to stay even if switching is better because it is easier and less stressful. To prevent this, create a 24-month timeline and stick to it.

Who? There are many factors to ponder when making a switch. The infrastructure and of the potential vendor are huge considerations. Understanding these will let you know how well they fit in with your credit union’s goals and strategy. Also, you need to consider things like continuity and disaster recovery with respect to .

How? All parties involved by the switch need to be aware of the what, why, and when. The best strategy is for credit union leadership to inform employees regarding the change and why it is necessary. Newsletters, email updates, and meetings are a great way to keep employees in the loop. Nobody likes flying blind during a core provider change.

Core Processing Compliance and Forms

Remember, before you worry about forms, check how long the forms provider has been in business and that their forms integrate with any core processor. Your credit union needs to make sure all fields are mapped correctly. Furthermore, check that these forms are up to date regarding all state and federal regulations.

Also, attending data processor conferences is a great way to get hands-on experience and learn about new technology updates from core processing vendors.

Take a look at these recent conferences:
April 17-19, 2018 Fiserv Forum Las Vegas, NV
May 8-9, 2018 Correlation 2018 Client Conference San Deigo, CA
August 27 – 30, 2018 Symitar 2018. San Diego, CA
