Code Credit Union implements Symitar’s Episys with MDT

Ohio-based Code Credit Union has implemented the Episys core processing system from Jack Henry’s Symitar division.

MDT will host Jack Henry’s Episys

Member Driven Technologies (MDT), a Jack Henry partner, implemented the new platform. It will also host Episys for Code CU.

Scott Rutherford, CEO of the credit union, cited MDT’s “strong reputation and proven track record” as reasons behind the pick.

MDT enables easy and open integration with any technology provider of our choosing, he adds. “We believe that this agility positions us competitively for the future.”

According to MDT, Code CU executed the core conversion “virtually from start to finish.” It calls the change a “smooth, successful migration that met all timelines.”

Rutherford says core conversions are never simple, but this particular project was “especially daunting”.

Despite that, he says MDT and Symitar “stepped up to the plate” to ensure Code CU staff could operate their new core.

Code CU also implemented a new digital banking platform and online account opening service as part of its conversion.

MDT says the technology “seamlessly integrates into the new core, saving time and creating operational efficiencies”.

Larry Nichols, CEO and president of MDT, says: “The Code CU and MDT teams fully embraced a virtual core conversion, participating in socially distanced trainings and meetings to make the process a success.”
