GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (11/21/12)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based credit union service organization, has released the 12.2 software upgrade for its flagship data processing software, CU*BASE.
The upgrade is the last of three major upgrades CU*Answers will deploy to its data processing clients this year, the company said.
New features include:
- A new online campus for credit union education;
- Mobile Web bill pay for EasyPay; and
- Enterprise Risk Management tools built right into CU*BASE.
Also, the upgrade made it easier to set up bonus dividends and interest rebates. In years past, CU*Answers assisted credit unions with set up of the program, which required some customization. Although it was a free service, credit unions still could not configure and execute the process fully on their own. A new menu function has been added so credit unions can set up their own bonus programs.
The new function also gives the credit union the ability to run a simulation of the live files without actually posting, and can be run as many times as it would like. Gividends, a division of CU*Answers, has offered to assist credit unions this year in walking staff through the process to make sure the tool is easy to use.
