  • Lorie Morse, AVP of Integrated Technologies, discusses the steps involved in receiving custom requests and how these are presented to the DHD Project Team, including the bid process and final approval.
  • Kim Claflin, Manager of Custom Services Development, explains her duties in gathering requirements from credit unions and vendors to determine the scope of a project, as well as communicating project statuses and overseeing data.

During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2019, the DHD team received 147 custom project requests and completed 94 custom projects, which represented 3,075 programming hours.  These statistics and more can be viewed within the Q4 Newsletter!

CU*Answers releases new API catalog

CU*Answers recently announced the publishing of its Fall 2019 API Catalog. API development represents an important process to continually enhancing CU*Answers’ capabilities to remain flexible for providing data in a streamlined, secure manner. This is not only for the tools the cooperative CUSO develops, but provides a gateway to allow others to develop products that connect with and integrate into the CU*Answers product suite.

Scott Page, DHD Business Manager, said: “The API catalog lets users familiarize themselves with the APIs that are available through the DHD: both existing APIs and ones that will be released soon. CU*Answers now features over 300 free APIs for every client to consider as they are thinking of project development strategies. For any credit union looking to order a free API catalog, they may do so directly through our DHD Online Store.”
