GLASTONBURY, Conn. (3/7/08)--Open Solutions Inc. announced the launch of its latest core processing solution, brand-named DNA. DNA features an updated user interface that improves workflow, provides easier access to information and further enhances processing capabilities (BusinessWire March 3). The user interface of DNA was designed after consulting with Open Solutions’ clients from the credit union and banking industries. It uses .NET technology. “Focus groups were held with clients, as well as non-clients, and the product was independently tested with banking and credit union groups,” said Michael Rawlins, director, human factors engineering, Open Solutions. “Using human factors research and usability testing, Open Solutions has created a streamlined, yet feature-rich, user experience that improves navigation and productivity.” Four credit unions are using DNA: 1st Financial CU, St. Charles. Mo., $166 million in assets; Spirit of Alaska FCU, Fairbanks, Alaska, $87 million; USA CU, Auburn Hills, Mich., $573 million; and Vermont State Employees CU, Montpelier, Vt., $367 million.
