Boston Firefighters CU in tech overhaul with COCC
Boston Firefighters Credit Union has outsourced its core processing to Connecticut Online Computer Centre (COCC).
COCC’s hosted platform is based on Fiserv’s DNA core system.
The $251 million credit union, which services 8,000 firefighters, police and correction officers, was impressed with COCC’s senior management team and their commitment to the project, the vendor says.
Bernie Winne, president and CEO of Boston Firefighters CU, comments: “We liked the products but, more significantly, we liked the people.”
He adds: “The products offered by COCC will be a significant technological upgrade from what we’ve been using.
“COCC offers much more functionality that is far more robust. It will allow us to do things that we’ve never been able to do.”
Established back in 1967 in Connecticut, COCC provides software and services to small banks and credit unions in the north east of the US.
Earlier this year, COCC signed St Mary’s Credit Union and Abington Bank. In 2016, CorePlus Credit Union, Freedom 1st Credit Union, Maple City Savings Bank, Holbrook Cooperative Bank, GSL Savings Bank and Salisbury Bank joined the customer ranks.
However, the vendor lost MountainOne Bank which moved to rival D+H Corporation’s PhoenixEFE core platform.
