New core platform offers up-to-date interface over MemberView® with a cleaner look and more intuitive usability

By: Melissa A. Ashley, SVP, CFO

In December, Corporate One will upgrade its core loan and deposit system to take advantage of a newer version of the system we acquired through our merger with the former Southeast Corporate. After more than one year of operating out of two core systems, we are prepared to realize the efficiencies of converting to one system, including more streamlined operations and more comprehensive member support. With this change, Corporate One is moving some functionality, including cash management, settlement activities and reporting, from MemberView to a new front-end application called Member$MART.   READ MORE +

for the month of Nov. 2013
It's time to give a hearty "welcome back" to the green shades in Washington, the folks responsible for shining a light on what's happening in the U.S. economy. After groping in the dark during the ill-advised 16-day shutdown that ended October 16, the data gatherers are belatedly releasing some economic reports, providing us with a glimpse into how the economy performed in the days and weeks just prior to standoff. Sadly, the news is anything but bright. Indeed, there is some evidence that the apprehension generated by the ongoing fiscal impasse may itself have put a damper on economic activity. For sure, the actual shutdown took a bite, albeit probably a small one, out of the fourth quarter's growth rate. The most significant news, of course, is contained in the all-important monthly employment report for September, unveiled two weeks after its scheduled release. In a nutshell, the job market performed under expectations during the month, but it wasn't a total disaster. The economy generated 148 thousand nonfarm jobs, about 30 thousand less than expected by the consensus on Wall Street. Revisions for the previous two months were mostly offsetting, so the September release left a heavy footprint on the average for the third quarter.
