Corelation Brings First Client Live on New
Carson, CA — On Monday, June 6, 2011, just like on any other Monday in
the history of Harbor Federal Credit Union, the doors opened and members filed in, managing
their finances and chatting with their familiar tellers. Except this Monday, unbeknownst to
the members, the credit union was taking a huge step forward as they became the first live
client of Corelation, Inc, the newest credit union core processing vendor. Corelation's
new KeyStone platform will be put to the test in the coming days and weeks, but after more
than six years of development by a team of programmers renowned across the industry, on this
opening day the pioneering institution carried an air of excitement and anticipation for the
system's potential. Of particular note was the enthusiasm and confidence expressed by
Harbor's CEO, Tina Fugelsang.
"We've literally watched the system be built in front of our eyes," said
Fugelsang," so we know what it's capable of. What's great is that we're just
seeing the tip of the iceberg for what KeyStone can do. This is a great day in the history of
our credit union."
That positive energy is music to the ears of Corelation's President, Theresa
Benavidez. "The trust and patience Tina and Harbor's staff have given us has been
invaluable as we progressed to this day, and now that it's here we are so proud and
excited by how well it has gone. This is a moment our company will never forget."
Even John Landis, the Founder and Principal Architect of Corelation, was excited. "It
has taken a tremendous amount of hard work to get to this point, but there is so much more
the team we've put together can do. I'm so happy with the success of this first
conversion, but to be honest I'm anxious to get back to the drawing board and push this
system even further."
The Corelation team will indeed continue to push KeyStone to new heights, as the first
client to sign with Corelation - Cabrillo Credit Union of San Diego - will convert in
September, to be followed by Oregon Pioneer FCU of Portland in October. With the motivation
from an initial rollout and with a combination of ability and desire on their side, the
future looks very exciting for this young company and its clients.
