On Location: The 2021 Corelation Client Conference
By John San Filippo
The COVID-19 pandemic may have kept Corelation from holding an in-person conference last year, but apparently any other disruption to the core processor’s business was minimal. During the opening slide presentation, attendees of both the in-person and virtual versions of this hybrid conference were shown all the credit unions that signed contracts during the pandemic. I counted 38.
The company was also able to keep conversions rolling by employing remote technologies. I’m not sure how many conversions they completed in the past 18 months because, quite frankly, I lost count as they were popping in and out.
During his segment of the opening remarks, Corelation founder John Landis offered the following stats:
167 signed credit unions
129 credit unions live on the KeyStone platform
More than $110 billion in combined client assets
More than 7.5 million members represented by these clients
As for the conference itself, Landis provided the following numbers:
1,116 total people in attendance, including in-person attendees, virtual attendees and vendors
208 in-person credit union attendees
506 virtual credit union attendees
143 credit unions represented by these attendees
A wide range of vendors, all anxious to get back into the live conference groove, made the trip to sunny San Diego. They included:
Add-On Technologies, Inc.
Advanced Fraud Solutions
Business Date Inc. (BDI)
Canon USA, Inc
CO-OP Financial Services
CUBUS Solutions, Inc.
CUNA Mutual Group
Digital Check + Avivatech

Lumin Digital, LLC
Millenial Vision, Inc. (MVI)
Pure IT Credit Union Services
Stickley on Security
Social distancing was spotty at best and masks appeared unpopular with attendees and exhibitors alike. I was one of only a handful of people I saw wearing any sort of face covering.
I will provide additional coverage as appropriate.
