Integrating credit card processing with your credit union

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr To date, credit unions have been faced with the choice of providing credit card processing in-house or outsourcing. Historically, only big credit unions ran in-house credit card processing. Smaller CUs shied away from credit card processing due to a variety of factors: It was expensive to do so in-house, and outsourcing was often difficult to integrate with the core. Furthermore, the rewards programs were not up to par with those of banks and larger FIs, which made them less desirable to members. Now, with increases in integration capabilities and decreases in cost, credit unions of all sizes are incorporating integrated processing capabilities. Here’s why credit unions big and small have opted for integrated credit card processing.Now that more credit card processors are on the market, and core technology has evolved, the integrations between the two continue to improve. With better connections to the core, a higher volume of member data is now accessible on member spending habits. Understanding how members shop and use their cards, credit unions can structure rewards programs around their members’ habits and interests. As a result, members are more engaged with CU credit cards than ever before.For credit unions that are wary of taking on the burden of in-house processing, there are vendors who can not only manage the process, but customize solutions to the needs of the CU. When choosing a vendor, it’s important to consider the goals in offering integrated processing. Whether it be better rewards programs to attract new members, more features, or improved reporting capabilities – these aspects will help guide the selection process when considering vendors. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgAURORA, Ill. — The atmosphere of Saturday’s Great Lakes Center NCAA Invitational was rather reminiscent of a high school tournament.For some of the UW volleyball players from the area, it was an opportunity to see some old friends and family.For the others, the down time in between matches was a chance to catch up on some reading.And just the setup of the bracket — first pool play before advancing to either the gold, silver or bronze tournament with every match a best-of-three series — felt very much like a high school club team’s tournament instead of one catering to 23 collegiate teams and one adult team.However, there was no denying the college level of talent in the Invitational, evident by Wisconsin’s inability to find consistency throughout the day despite heading into the tournament as a heavy favorite.Missing Audra Jeffers due to a sore back and having a somewhat-ill Maria Carlini in the lineup didn’t help much, either.Pitted against Bowling Green and South Carolina in pool play, Wisconsin did not get off to a great start.UW squeaked by Bowling Green 31-29, 30-27 in the first game but then fell to South Carolina 30-18, 26-30, 11-15 and, thus, was forced to settle for the silver tournament, as it finished second in its respective pool.Despite being the “second-place” tournament, the silver bracket was not much easier, and just like in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament last month, Wisconsin faced Arizona in the first round.This time around, the Badgers avoided a first-round upset by routing the Wildcats 30-22, 30-25 — not the close, competitive match many expected from the only two Elite Eight teams at the Invitational.Wisconsin’s toughest match, though, came in the second round against Big Ten opponent Purdue.The Boilermakers came out strong and found themselves with a nine-point lead in the first game at 15-24, but UW fought back and actually obtained a 27-26 lead before falling 28-30.In the second game, Purdue jumped out to an early lead once again at 20-11, and though the Badgers clawed back to a 26-26 tie, they eventually lost 27-30.With much of its squad back from last year, Wisconsin head coach Pete Waite was impressed with Purdue’s improvement from last fall’s fifth-place Big Ten finish.”Purdue has a lot of [players] who they had back, and nobody’s out, injured or anything like that, so they were pretty strong,” Waite said. “They’re tough. They serve tough and play some great defense and bring a lot to you.”The only position Purdue really needed to find a replacement for was at setter, and Lindsay Schondell — Boilermaker head coach Dave Schondell’s daughter — played extremely well against Wisconsin.After losing to Purdue, the Badgers were scheduled to play another Big Ten rival –Iowa — in the third place game, but Hawkeye head coach Cindy Frederick asked to call off the last game, as she only had seven available players who were exhausted after a long day.With three injured players — Jeffers, Carlini and Jackie Simpson (broken hand) — Waite had no problem with heading home early.”We were a little beat up, too,” Waite said. “Jackie and Audra didn’t play, and Maria was sick all week, so we were pretty tacked, but we definitely got our money’s worth.”Also, having to face another conference team in the spring season wasn’t the most intriguing situation.”You get to match up and see how you’re doing against them,” Waite said of playing against the Big Ten during spring play. “But sometimes you get a little tired of seeing the same teams, and it’s nice when you meet some people from other conferences, like when we played Arizona and South Carolina. You just see some different athletes and different systems.”While Wisconsin ended up finishing with a somewhat disappointing 2-2 record and technically a third-place finish in the silver bracket, the weekend wasn’t a lost one for a team looking to end the spring season on a high note.”We were a little bit streaky,” Waite said. “But there were times where we played some great ball and we did things we haven’t done all spring. I thought Katie [Lorenzen] set better than she has all spring, and that was some good progress for her.”Lorenzen was able to play exclusively at the setter position all spring with Simpson’s injury, and her improvement was just one of many for the team this season as the Badgers are hoping to continue to build off of their postseason success from recent years with much of their roster still intact.”Katie got a lot of great setting time in and improved her skills, and that puts us even deeper at the setter spot,” Waite said. “Also, Jeffers was moved to the left side hitting this spring, so she really expanded her game, and she’ll be an even better player next year. And I think Amy Bladow made some big strides this spring from where she was last fall, and that was great.”Once we get healed up and rested over the summer, everything’s going to soak in and we’ll be ready to go in the fall.”last_img read more

first_imgLIME SPRINGS — The Iowa Economic Development Authority has approved state incentives for a Howard County beef processing facility. IEDA spokeswoman Jacque Matsen says tax incentives have been approved for Upper Iowa Beef in Lime Springs.  “This is a locally sourced state-of-the-art beef processing facility in Lime Springs. It was previously called Lime Springs Beef and now is changing to Upper Iowa Beef as they look to expand their production capacity,” Matsen says.  She says they want to dramatically increase their production. “They’ve been very successful in their first couple of years of operation and now are looking to add additional square footage onto their existing facility — which will mean they will be able to increase their processing capacity from about 500 head to about 15-hundred head per week,” Matsen explains. The additional capacity will require them to hire more workers. “It’s a total of 75 additional jobs in the community, and it’s an also nearly seven-million dollar capital investment going into the Lime Springs area,” Matsen says. Twenty of the new jobs will have a wage of nearly 22 dollars-an-hour.last_img read more

first_imgThis week’s entry by Sara Goudarzi in Live Science requires no comment.  The title of the article is, “Life’s Origin a Gas.”Life on Earth emerged out of thin air, scientists now say.    By mimicking in a lab the gases that could have been present on early Earth, researchers have concluded that a layer of haze blanketing our planet produced organic material that helped living organisms develop.Sara went on to talk about how the atmosphere on Saturn’s moon Titan might have resembled that on the early Earth.  An organic haze layer could have existed for “a billion years while life was evolving,” she said, based on inspiration from a recent paper claiming that organic material could have rained down on the Earth like manna from heaven.  Despite the opening bravado, her article ended on a minor chord: “Scientists still do not know exactly what triggered the onset of biology, however.”Life emerged out of thin air.  Wonderful.  That’s a gas, all right.  Laughing gas.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgThe men of muddle earth are wondering what to do with their hobbit prisoners.  Elizabeth Culotta wrote in Science about the ongoing debates among paleoanthropologists about how to interpret the diminutive skeletons found in the Liang Bua cave of Flores in Indonesia, affectionately dubbed hobbits.1  After four years of study (10/27/2004, 06/06/2006, 08/21/2006, 10/11/2006), there is still no consensus on whether they were diseased modern humans or some evolutionary side branch of hominids from Africa.    Paleoanthropologists meeting in Columbus, Ohio earlier this month got their first views of the LB1 skeleton.  William Jungers of State University of New York at Stony Brook claimed the creature had a slow gait, due to abnormalities with its feet.  He believes the hobbit provides a window into the primitive bipedal foot of australopithecines.  For that to be true, Leslie Aiello of New York City countered, it would have had to remain unchanged for a long time.  “How it got there and managed to persist–that’s clearly a challenge to explain.”  Others said there is no evidence for a migration like that.  To invent such a story is clearly a case of “special pleading.”    In short, no consensus has emerged about these small humans.  “Given the wildly diverging opinions on the hobbit,” Culotta ended, ‘Somebody’s going to take a big fall here.’”  She was quoting paleoanthropologist C. Owen Lovejoy of Kent State University in Ohio.  Maybe the fall will become evident by fall (autumn, that is).  Another research team will be excavating the cave this summer.1.  Elizabeth Culotta, “When Hobbits (Slowly) Walked the Earth,” Science, 25 April 2008: Vol. 320. no. 5875, pp. 433-435, DOI: 10.1126/science.320.5875.433.Evolutionists would love to have another case of chimps becoming humans here.  The early hopes have not materialized.  Our prediction: the skeletons will be shown to be human.  Wait and see.  They’ll find a fingernail-sized cell phone or something.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgIn terms of security, a number of new initiatives have been implemented to ensure that crime and violence do not mar the tournament. These include boosting the ranks of the police, acquiring hi-tech equipment (including helicopters, bomb suits, robots, x-ray machines and crowd-control water cannons) and setting up special courts to deal with offences related to the event. Nevertheless, we are not alone with our social and political problems. Just 500 days before the 2006 World Cup, Germany was dangerously divided – yet that tournament provided the glue that united a nation in a sea of black, yellow and red. 26 January 2009 Urquhart is a former Fifa World Cup media officer and the current editor of Project 2010 Like in 1994, cool heads are needed. Millions of South Africans, new to staging an event of this magnitude, have helped lay the foundations for the world’s biggest single-code sporting event. The result is that the skylines of every host city are now dotted with cranes, towering over stadiums and other World Cup-related projects. And the consensus is that most of these projects are well on track to meet their deadlines. The biggest hurdle facing South Africa is surely the political climate. The ruling party has split, its leader could still face prosecution, and a general election is looming fast. An entire subcontinent is preparing to play a role in the successful hosting of the event. Already, all of our neighbours have formulated plans to ensure they will be part and parcel of the extravaganza. The spin-offs are enormous, particularly in the tourism sector, which is where most other countries stand to benefit. And so it is with January 26, which marks the 500-day countdown to the start of the quadrennial showpiece of international football. It affords us an opportunity to gauge the progress South Africa has made – as well as the challenges that still lie ahead. On the field, Bafana Bafana are showing real signs of promise (four wins in four international friendlies), and are well positioned to hold their own in this year’s Confederations Cup – a key curtainraiser for 2010. The reality is that South Africa may be on the brink of a 2010-induced revolution, one that could change the country – and the rest of the continent – forever. The international focus on South Africa’s preparations for the 2010 Fifa World Cup usually intensifies with major events – like the 2010 Preliminary Draw and the Olympic Games – or with key dates.last_img read more
