Northern Credit Union Renews Service Agreement with Synergent

Synergent is pleased to announce that Northern CU has renewed its outsourcing agreement with Synergent to provide the Symitar® Episys® core processing system. The five-year agreement also includes card services, check processing, statement processing, mobile deposit capture, and laser check printing.

“Our credit union’s primary purpose is crystal clear; we aspire to positively impact the lives of those we serve through engaging conversations, empowerment and personalized solutions,” said Dan St. Hilaire, President & CEO at Northern CU. “Synergent has been an essential partner in our pursuit of this quest since 2009 and we look forward to continuing our trusted relationship with them.”

Northern CU, headquartered in Watertown, New York, was chartered over 66 years ago as New York Air Brake FCU. In 1982, the credit union became NYAB/Tri-County Teachers FCU, and then Northern FCU in 1996. Today, as Northern CU, it serves more than 35,000 members and holds over $421 million in assets.

“Northern Credit Union’s people-centric culture and commitment to provide the highest level of service, both in person and through technology, aligns well with Synergent’s goal of providing credit unions the tools they need to support a strong member experience, wherever their members need them,” said Scott Johnsen, Synergent’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “Our entire team is pleased to continue working with Northern on the delivery of products, services, and innovative solutions they need to serve their members.”
