Sage Direct and Commercial Business Systems to Automate Statement File Process

GRAND RAPIDS, MI, April 11, 2018 – Sage Direct and Commercial Business Systems (CBS) announced today a new effort to automate the uploading of credit union member statement files from CBS to Sage Direct.

Currently, credit unions are required to access the CBS CAMS-ii core processing system to transfer the file for statement processing. By coordinating data processing expertise, Sage Direct and CBS will eliminate the need for clients to be involved in the process. This new capability will only be available to mutual clients of the companies.

Gary Sage, President of Sage Direct, heralded the advancement by stating, “Sage Direct and CBS have established a strong working relationship designed to bring greater value to our joint clients. We hope this new efficiency will lead to our working together more closely to better serve the industry.”

Ken Hunt, Vice President, Business Development for CBS added, “We are excited to move forward with Sage Direct to improve the service for our clients. By eliminating this part of the process, our credit unions will enjoy a more seamless approach to statement processing.”

The automated process will be available by May 1, 2018.
