The New Core Is Coming

Caring for our long-term health is always easier if done preventatively.  Regular exercise and following a healthy diet are recommendations we know will keep us fit and well.  Much like our physical well being, we also try to keep up-to-date with latest advances in other areas of our lives.  We utilize modern technology for entertainment and business.  We take our vehicles in for preventative maintenance, and we watch the forecast for changes in the weather before cold weather hits.  Planning and preparing is always a better way to navigate the storms of life, especially the wintry ones.

Dakota West Credit Union knows that the financial health of our members is one of the highest priorities we must strive to achieve, and we know preparing in advance is a way to keep our financial institution healthy.  Coming this summer, we are transitioning to a new core processing system.  This new technology will enable us to provide more efficient, modern services to our members and keep our core healthy for years to come.

Our Core Conversion takes place over the weekend of Friday, May 31, 2019 through Monday, June 3, 2019.  During our Core Conversion, we will be changing to a more advanced system that will keep Dakota West Credit Union healthy and fit technologically, allowing us to create more efficient processes to serve our members.

Much like caring for our physical well being benefits us on the inside, our Core Conversion will not be outwardly visible to our members.  Yes, there will be a few minor changes, and we encourage our members to read our Frequently Asked Questions on our website to learn more about how the Core Conversion will impact and benefit you.  Most importantly, being informed is the best way to plan and prepare for the upcoming Core Conversion.

Watch for more information on this site, in your email, and even in our branches about our upcoming Core Conversion.  We have been working for nearly a year to make this transition smooth and successful to benefit our members, because your financial health and the security and the services you expect from Dakota West Credit Union will continue to keep us focused on keeping us in our best shape for the future.
