State National's VIP Status with Symitar, New Episys Interface Module, Maximize Credit Union Efficiency

Credit Unions save time, reduce costs, and enhance member service through enhanced, seamless integration between State National and Symitar's Episys platform

State National Companies (SNC), the nation's leading provider of Collateral Protection Insurance (CPI) programs, announced that it is entering its third year in the Symitar™ Vendor Integration Program (VIP).

"Our continued participation in Symitar's VIP program and our new interface module for Symitar's Episys core processing platform illustrate State National's commitment to working closely with Symitar for the benefit of our mutual clients. A substantial number of our credit union clients are also Symitar users." said Michael Weiskircher, chief information officer at State National.

"For many years, we have been supporting credit unions that use Episys by integrating CPI data with the core system, making it easy for credit unions to administer their CPI programs," Weiskircher added. "Our new, enhanced interface module for Symitar's Episys core processing solution builds on this integration by fully eliminating manual posting and providing credit unions the ability to automate CPI-related changes to a loan."

State National capitalizes on the open architecture of Symitar's Episys platform and the configuration capabilities of Symitar's PowerOn scripting tool in order to offer several ways of data interchange that other vendors do not support. State National's Episys Interface includes scripts that automate functionality for both CPI payment change and CPI billing.

"We understand that credit unions need to spend their time delivering service to their members, not dealing with system issues. By being able to interface CPI data with the Episys core processing solution, credit unions save time, increase efficiency, and eliminate manual data entry in ways that most CPI vendors can't offer," said John Pearson, national sales manager at State National, "Our continued participation in Symitar's VIP ensures that our customers can benefit from both Symitar's technology and our innovative CPI programs."
