Everglades Federal Credit Union Signs Core Contract with CU*SOUTH

Aug 3, 2023

CU*SOUTH, a 100% credit union-owned credit union service organization (CUSO) that provides essential products and solutions for credit unions, announced today that Everglades Federal Credit Union in Clewiston, Florida, has signed a contract to convert to CU*BASE, the CUSO’s flagship core processing platform.

With $56 million in assets and nearly 5,300 members, Everglades FCU chose CU*BASE because of its flexibility and versatility, enabling the credit union to offer a wide array of products and services across multiple channels. Because CU*BASE is an all-in-one platform, Everglades will also work with CU*SOUTH to launch a new mobile app with enhanced remote deposit capture, SMS banking, and other key services that integrate seamlessly into CU*BASE.

Additionally, Everglades FCU will take advantage of CU*Spy Online Vault with eSignatures. CU*Spy online vault allows credit unions to store and retrieve various documents electronically, such as reports, receipts, loans, photo IDs, member forms and invoices. This will also allow Everglades to leverage remote signatures to send documents to members for e-signing.

“We are excited to welcome Everglades FCU to our growing network of credit unions that want to enhance their member service and operational efficiency,” said Bob West, CEO of CU*SOUTH. “We look forward to working with them to ensure a smooth transition and a successful partnership for years to come.”

“We chose CU*BASE because it offers a comprehensive suite of features and functionality that will help us better serve our members and compete in the market,” said Marta Betancourt, President and CEO at Everglades FCU. “We were impressed by the collaborative culture and innovative spirit of CU*SOUTH, and we are confident that they will provide us with the support and guidance we need to grow and thrive.”

CU*SOUTH is building a collaborative, peer-to-peer community of Credit Unions
through shared development of technology and service platforms. CU*SOUTH is headquartered on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, with a nationwide network of CU experts.
