    Register Today

    “Core Conversion” may be the two scariest words amongst bank and credit union executives and staff members. When Core Conversions go awry, customer or member service can suffer, clients often depart, employees quit and a financial institution’s reputation can be damaged for years.

    Our webcast will explore how to successfully convert to a new core provider and avoid a potential conversion meltdown. ICI leadership will talk about strategies and tactics that other banks and credit unions are utilizing to cost effectively implement a new Core Processing solution and ancillary systems. The webcast will assist the audience in implementing best practices, while identifying the pitfalls before they become huge problems. Additionally, we hope to ease, or alleviate, fears and concerns associated with core conversions.

    Tangible benefits for attendees:
    - Identify the best practices other financial institutions are using in successful core conversions.
    - Recognize the common problems that cause implementation time frames to become elongated or even trigger conversion failures.
    - Help ensure your staff members are properly trained and prepared for the core conversion.

    • What strategies will guarantee your financial institution can cost-effectively convert to a new core platform?
    • What common problems will cause implementation timeframes to become elongated or even trigger conversion failures?
