CU*BASE iSeries Guidelines for Self Processors

The solution for In-House processors of any size is our CU*BASE Member Processing System. CU*BASE provides a level of processing competency that surpasses the feature set and functionality of other “traditional” solutions on the market, and does so in a more cost-effective manner. Unlike many competitive solutions, CU*BASE is not a “subset” of our flagship product. As a result, all of our clients can take advantage of system enhancements as they are made for no additional charge.

The underlying foundation to provide this environment is the IBM iSeries® Server and its fully integrated DB2 database. With over 485,000 systems installed worldwide, the iSeries® delivers industry-leading technology with unrivaled customer satisfaction and loyalty. This allows our clients to spend their time managing their credit union, not managing their servers and databases.
