COLUMBUS, Ohio – Corporate One Federal Credit Union, a leading provider of financial products and services to the credit union industry, announced today that it has joined eDOC Innovations, Inc, (formerly Reed Data, Inc.) the nation’s leading CUSO for e-document strategies and a provider of electronic document management and electronic image and forward collection (Check 21) services. A third partner in eDOCs Innovations is CU*Answers, a CUSO made up of 76 credit unions that provides data processing, network services and check processing support to credit unions throughout the nation.
“At Corporate One, our expertise has been in imaging and storing certain transactional documents, such as share draft clearings and forward collection items, providing our members with robust image retrieval and image research tools,” said Lee Butke, Corporate One’s president and CEO. “With this new partnership, we now have the ability to help credit unions develop a comprehensive document imaging strategy through offerings that will encompass these transactional documents as well as other documents critical to running a credit union – documents like transaction receipts, signature cards and loan applications. We can now offer credit unions a total imaging solution,” he added.
eDOC Innovations services more than 400 credit unions through its e-document strategies software, DocLogic – a complete “Go Paperless” platform for credit unions that desire to increase member satisfaction and worker productivity, while decreasing operational costs connected with printing, storing and retrieving paper documents. DocLogic allows credit unions to “go green,” while at the same time enhancing their members’ interactions with them.
“Innovation is a mindset that we promote in our business practices,” explained Bret Weekes, president and CEO of eDOC Innovations. “Our new partnership with Corporate One brings together solutions that will help credit unions nationwide in a very personal way. That is what innovation is about for us – giving credit unions the edge to succeed,” added Weekes.
Randy Karnes, CEO of CU*Answers agrees. Karnes explains, “We are excited about this new partnership on many levels, but primarily because it allows the CUSO to develop holistic e-document tactics that are part of a credit union’s central strategy, not just a last minute extension of a completed transaction.”
The partnership of eDOC Innovations, CU*Answers and Corporate One brings together three separate industry leaders that each bring specialized abilities in serving the entire credit union community.
