The group was founded in 1986 by several financial institutions that had three things in common – Unisys hardware, Information Technology, Inc. software (now Fiserv Premier) and the need and/or desires to make contact with other similar institutions in order to share ideas and information. Over the years we have expanded to banks running Fiserv Premier whether out-sourced or running in-house on IBM or Unisys.
Members come from all over the Eastern seaboard, ranging in asset size from $10 million to over 6 billion dollars, though asset size is irrelevant to membership.
The purpose of our group is to share information, ideas and best of all to make those contacts that are so essential to communication and help from other users. The group is independent from any company and is interested in the most cost effective and proficient solutions to operational needs. An annual membership fee of a mere $100.00 is requested from all members to cover mailing, printing costs, phone and other expenses.
The annual conference, started in 1987, provides 2 and ½ days of multiple options for users to gain insight on modules they presently use, are considering and others which perhaps they were unaware of. Experienced users and/or vendors present these optional modules in detail.
Since 1989, we’ve provided a two (2) day training class, providing users a cost effective manner to obtain needed training to properly serve their users in our ever-changing environment.
Third Party Vendors
In addition to our inviting Unisys, Fiserv Premier and now IBM to our conference, we also invite numerous 3rd party vendors of software, hardware and other products that may compete with and/or add value to the software and/or hardware deemed useful to a Fiserv Premier bank. This enables all of us to stay on the leading edge of technology and be exposed to the very newest in products and services.
The executive committee is exclusively made up of users from member banks and their interests are solely for the purposes identified here.
