A credit union client of technology and payments firm Jack Henry has integrated its software in accordance with new industry standards.

Baxter Credit Union is the first client of Symitar, Jack Henry's credit union division, to be integrated with the Credit Union Financial Exchange standards, Jack Henry announced Friday. The Credit Union Financial Exchange standards, which Symitar helped develop, concern the integration of software to core processing systems.

The $1.8 billion-asset Baxter, based in Vernon Hills, Ill., has integrated its Episys and MoneyDesktop software, both part of the Symitar system, in accordance with the standards, Jack Henry said.

"We have always been committed to keeping Episys as open as possible," said Symitar president Ted Bilke in the news release. "Our support of CUFX is an extension of our longstanding commitment to make it as easy as possible for our clients to integrate Episys with the third-party products that best support their business strategies and technology requirements."
