NAPERVILLE, Ill.--()--CNP (Core Network Processing, LLC), Lenexa, KS, a CUSO that supports a core data-processing application (CorPower) used by over 2,000 credit unions for cash-management services, was faced with a difficult conversion in 2012. CNP was supported by U.S. Central and needed to find a new partner to support its IT needs. After a proposal process, a new IT partner was chosen, Alloya Corporate FCU, Warrenville, IL. The transition to Alloya went flawlessly, operating expenses were lowered and IT capabilities were increased.
“Thanks in large part to Alloya’s experienced team and Worknet’s IT know-how, this transition not only went flawlessly, but credit union’s utilizing CNP to perform cash-management functions now have new benefits”
Worknet, Inc., Naperville, IL, a managed IT services provider, helped design Alloya’s offering, which is called “Technology Services Powered by Worknet.” In addition to a smooth data-center migration, the offering featured significant IT-infrastructure upgrades, thus strengthening operations for CNP’s credit-union members.
The transition of CNP’s computing environment to the physical location of Worknet, which boasts data centers in suburban Chicago and Indianapolis, happened quickly — over one weekend. The environment has been up and running at Worknet for several months, providing hosting and management to CNP’s iSeries and open-systems IT infrastructure in a secure, high-performance setting featuring private-cloud technology. The total-solution, team-centered transition epitomizes Worknet’s “Technology Plus” program, which incorporates ideas, flexibility, scalability, highly personal service, compelling value and total transparency — thus engendering immediate and long-term benefits.
“Thanks in large part to Alloya’s experienced team and Worknet’s IT know-how, this transition not only went flawlessly, but credit union’s utilizing CNP to perform cash-management functions now have new benefits,” said Alloya’s Todd Adams, chief financial officer, senior vice president and director, affiliated business services.
Added Teresa Brent, managing director of CNP: “I am extremely pleased with the efforts of all the persons on the Alloya, Worknet and CNP Corporate CU teams who did their part to ensure that the CNP system hosting and support migration happened so efficiently, without major incident, and is performing so well in its new environment.”
“After working with Worknet, through Alloya, I believe there are additional benefits that we will be able to build on over time. Worknet and Alloya are partnering to continue to provide value to CNP going forward. They are committed to providing long-term value, not just a one-time fix,” said Brent.
Noted Biff Myre, Worknet director: “Our company’s deep history in working with regulated financial industry clients and not-for-profit organizations helped sharpen our insight into the practical business needs and challenges associated with the CNP infrastructure upgrade and migration. Worknet’s technology acumen is unsurpassed; yet our advisement approach always strives to deliver outstanding value, so that we never fall into the trap of leveraging technology solely for technology’s sake.”
