LAKE MARY, Fla. (9/25/09)--Harland Financial Solutions has launched Phoenix Extended Financial Enterprise (EFE), an integrated enterprise software platform for financial institutions, including credit unions. PhoenixEFE is designed for credit unions with a focus on business services, including commercial lending and loan participation. The solution integrates Phoenix System, a real-time core processor, with solutions for risk management, lending and compliance, business intelligence and marketing, branch automation, self-service, enterprise content management, payments and financial accounting. Consumers CU, Kalamazoo, Mich., is one of two financial institutions that went live on PhoenixEFE in August. The credit union said the solution helped it expand its reach in the commercial market. PhoenixEFE Core runs on Microsoft Windows and is integrated by a Web services transaction gateway that uses XML and Web services. The Phoenix System brand will no longer be used in the U.S. All its functionality will be included with PhoenixEFE, Harland added.
