EasyIT & Me: Why Does Education First Credit Union Work With EasyIT?

IT plays a big role in their business, which is why they work with EasyIT — discover more in this video with CEO Mike Wettrich:
EasyIT Is An Extension Of Education First Credit Union’s IT Department
As a member of the financial sector, Education First Credit Union is charged with managing and protecting its members’ financial information. Their IT environment is a critical part of their operations, allowing their staff to render services and meet members’ needs on a daily basis.
That’s why it’s so important for them to partner with an IT company that will take care of their systems and help them maintain productivity and security. For all things IT, they trust EasyIT.
“We’re quite pleased to be partnering with EasyIT,” says Mike Wettrich, CEO, Education First Credit Union. “At Education First Credit Union, our internal IT staff can focus on day-to-day operations, and EasyIT, being SOC2 compliant, helps us with major projects.”
This is the ideal arrangement for Education First Credit Union — their IT staff can work on the direct, daily management of their primary line of business applications, and anything outside of the core system configuration and maintenance is handled by the EasyIT team.
With the option to escalate any tasks outside of their specific purview to EasyIT, the Education First Credit Union IT staff can dedicate their full attention to keeping their systems optimized. This is a key advantage for Education First Credit Union, which would otherwise be reserved for organizations that have invested much more in building an extensive internal IT department.
“It really makes us a larger-scale organization, providing the security and safe networking environment that financial services are expected to maintain at all times,” says Mike. “We’re really pleased that we can scale up without having the staff internally.”
