USERS Inc. has signed an agreement that makes FORUM Solutions a USERS' Authorized Business Partner-the first such partner to emerge from the core supplier's own client base, according to the company.
FORUM Solutions is a wholly owned subsidiary of Indianapolis-based FORUM Credit Union. The agreement provides for the certification of FORUM's TAPS Lending and TAPS 24/7 solutions with USERS' DataSafe core processing system. Users said the agreement also reflects its commitment to choice, as evidenced by its open architecture and unique Connect-I.T. XML/OFX-enabled middleware.
Connect-I.T. is the conduit that will enable the integration of the two suppliers' solutions with little or no software development, bringing the time-to-market down considerably.
FORUM Solution's TAPS Lending and TAPS 24/7 home banking solutions will join options already integrated with USERS' core system, including USERS' Lending Navigator and PCU Internet Banking suite. The $640-million FORUM founded FORUM Solutions in 2000.
