HCFCU Processing System Update

Hawaii Central Federal Credit Union is making important updates to our core processing system to better serve our members. The core processing system is the computer system that Hawaii Central FCU uses to maintain members’ information, along with processing transactions. As the credit union continues to grow, it is necessary for us to utilize a more robust core processor in order to offer our members more convenient products and services in the future.
