BROOKFIELD, Wis. -- June 19, 2014
Fiserv Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services
technology solutions, announced today that United Credit Union of Mexico,
Missouri, has selected the CUnify™ account processing platform from Fiserv. In
addition to its on-premise deployment of CUnify, United will add CheckFree^®
RXP^® from Fiserv and the Popmoney^® person-to-person (P2P) payment service.
Through a competitive selection process, United chose CUnify for its
reliability and state-of-the-art relational database foundation to streamline
workflows, improve overall performance and provide seamless payments
“To begin our selection process for a technology provider, we first asked
‘what do our members want and need and will our technology support our
position to provide it?’. The most outstanding factor in our decision to
choose Fiserv was that CUnify is specifically designed for member centricity,”
said Joanne Nelson, vice president of Compliance and IT, United Credit Union.
“Everything we saw with Fiserv showed us that we could achieve our goals and
deliver outstanding services to our members.”
With $142 million in assets and six locations across Missouri, United will
utilize Fiserv to help deliver superior products and services to its 20,000
members. The functionality of CUnify will enable United to streamline back
office capabilities, moving from manual processes to a real-time automated
system. In addition, the relational reporting data will allow a complete view
of the member to support their financial services needs. These features will
aid in increasing member satisfaction by offering faster, more reliable
servicing, as well as giving employees more time to spend on personal service.
Employees also benefit from reduced training time due to the ease of
navigation and automation of the solution.
The changing payment preferences of the members at United indicated the need
for electronic personal payments capabilities. New to members, United will
offer the ability to make person-to-person payments via Popmoney, which was
selected for its security and ease of use. Following implementation, members
will have the ability to securely send, receive and request money to/from
individuals for purposes such as making a last-minute rent payment, sending
money to a family member in an emergency, or paying a small business or
service provider upon completion of a project.
“United has their pulse on delivering advanced financial services efficiently
and effectively through the best technology available,” said Mark Sievewright,
division president, Credit Union Solutions, Fiserv. “Fiserv solutions help
credit unions deliver an outstanding financial experience, which drives
satisfaction and value for members.”

institutions. More than one third of U.S. financial institutions rely on
Fiserv for account processing solutions and expertise. In addition, CheckFree
RXP is the industry’s leading electronic billing and payments solution used by
