Data linking, the term conceived by Oak Tree Business Systems, Inc. in 1997, is the process of linking data from a credit union’s data/loan processor and transferring it into the blank areas on the credit union’s form in a way that ensures that the appropriate information prints correctly and that the form is properly completed. Data linking maps out information and allows data to be transferred from one system to another.
The idea of data linking was developed in 1997, when the CEO of Oak Tree Business Systems, Inc. noticed a great need in the credit union industry for a faster, more efficient way of entering data into credit union forms. At that time, data was mostly entered manually, making processing time-consuming, costly, and at times problematic when a data processor and forms provider were not compatible. It was in that year that the Data Services Department was founded at Oak Tree in order to speed up the process and efficiently link the information from various processing systems to Oak Tree’s credit union forms in an easy and reliable manner. In addition, Oak Tree can set up forms to include digital signatures and optical storage with most systems.
Oak Tree went about this by developing working relationships with and becoming certified by credit union data processors. Data linking can now be done at a much lower cost and in a fraction of the time.
Oak Tree Business Systems, Inc. is the premier provider of data linking, as they were the first company to assist data processors in the process. To this day, Oak Tree continues to be the premier data linking provider by supporting your form changes, revisions, system upgrades, and training; and providing you toll-free telephone support, as well as live online chat.
