Simulated Training Environment

Bedrock Community Credit Union

With the Bedrock Community Credit Union simulated training environment, CU*BASE users can practice using the software without the worry of affecting real member data. Bedrock is set up just like a real credit union, but without links to outside vendors. This shared training resource is available to all online credit unions free of charge. Users can add members, modify accounts, and conduct transactions. Configurations are generic, using settings typical to most online clients, and access is limited to basic member service, lending, and accounting functions. Whether introducing new employees to CU*BASE or helping existing employees practice new skills, the Bedrock Community Credit Union training environment is perfect for keeping CU*BASE users up to speed on the tools they’ll use every day to serve their members. To request credentials to access Bedrock, contact the CU*Answers Client Services & Education team at education@cuanswers.com. Visit CU*Answers to learn more about this resource.

CU*BASE Custom Training Edition

Unlike Bedrock Community Credit Union, which is used by all CU*Answers online clients, CU*BASE Custom Training Edition (CTE) is a training environment used exclusively by the subscribing credit union. CU*BASE CTE is customized to mirror the subscribing credit union’s live environment. For a one-time setup fee plus a monthly maintenance fee, clients can have a copy of their own membership data set up as a training environment, available only to their credit union employees. CU*BASE CTE gives credit unions a safe place to practice using CU*BASE tools, learn new skills, and experiment with new features without the worry of affecting their live member data. And since it’s a copy of a credit union’s actual files, both the product configurations and member accounts will be familiar and will behave like they do in the credit union’s day-to-day environment. Whether introducing new employees to CU*BASE or helping existing employees practice new skills, CU*BASE CTE is perfect for keeping credit unions up to speed on the tools they’ll use every day to serve their members.
