Farmington Hills, MI – February 26, 2015 – Member Driven Technologies (MDT) is proud to announce the signing of Southwest Montana Community Federal Credit Union, with branches located in Anaconda and Butte, MT.  They plan on converting their core processing to Symitar Episys via the Member Driven Technologies (MDT) credit union-owned service organization (CUSO) solution in early 2016.

Tom Dedman, Southwest Montana Community FCU’s President/CEO says:  “First, I’m really excited to be able to work with a company filled with like-minded people whose job is focused on how we can become more efficient and offer the best class of services possible for our members.  As a credit union, our purpose is to help fulfill the hopes and dreams of our members, not to be a data processing shop.  By joining MDT, Southwest Montana Community Federal Credit Union will be able to focus on member service, not on operating systems or the nuts and bolts of technology.  It is important to us that we do business with credit unions cooperating together for the mutual benefit of all.”

He goes on to say, “My career was built on helping credit unions cooperate in projects.  It’s only natural that I’d want to do business with a place like MDT.”
