Katahdin FCU Signs New Ten-Year Agreement with Synergent for the Symitar Episys Core Processing System

Synergent is pleased to announce that Katahdin FCU has signed a new ten-year outsourcing agreement with Synergent to provide the Symitar® Episys® core processing system. The credit union also works with Synergent for its card services, check processing, statement processing, digital banking, and laser check printing.

“Synergent has been our trusted partner for many years and we are pleased to renew our agreement with them,” said Tina Jamo, CEO of Katahdin FCU. “Their suite of services, complemented by the powerful Episys core platform, helps us better serve our members.”

Katahdin FCU, headquartered in Millinocket, Maine, was chartered over 67 years ago as a single employer credit union for Great Northern Paper Company. Since that time, the credit union has expanded to be a community-based institution serving Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties, and part of Aroostook County. It has over 8,100 members and holds over $92 million in assets.

“Helping Katahdin FCU provide exceptional service to their members is a responsibility the entire Synergent team takes seriously,” said Scott Johnsen, Synergent’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “We are thrilled that the credit union has renewed their agreement with Synergent so we can continue our important work for another decade—hopefully more! Katahdin FCU always goes the extra mile for their members, and we are committed to ensuring they have the technology solutions they need to succeed for many years to come.”
