About Lanier Federal Credit Union
Chartered in 1969, Lanier Federal Credit Union has grown into a community organization available to anyone in Hall County, GA. Located north of Atlanta, Lanier Federal Credit Union has two branches—one in Oakwood and another in Gainesville.
When Cherry Walton, EVP Assistant to the CEO, joined Lanier Federal, all payroll and HR functions were all done manually in-house. “We wanted to find an all-in-one solution that would combine HR functions and payroll into one place to give our employees more flexibility and responsibility,” Walton explains.
Years of Credit Union Experience
Filled with regulatory oversight and compliance concerns, credit unions are a unique business. With years of experience catering to the industry, Netchex is designed with these needs in mind.
“I liked that Netchex had a lot of experience with Credit Unions and our regulations,” Walton said. “Not only do we have to comply with DOL regulations, we also have NCUA regulations. Ultimately, it was the fact that there was a local person for me to work with and the experience with credit unions that made me choose Netchex.”

Faster, More Efficient HR Processes
As a one-person department, Cherry handles all HR functions. With time at a premium, she needed a system that would make her job easier. Netchex delivers that and so much more.
“I don’t spend as much time with employees on payroll deduction changes, taxes, paperwork, etc.,” she revealed. “With NetBenefits, I like the ease of setting up my employees and their deductions. NetGuide lets me get new hire paperwork to employees prior to their first day so they can start their jobs quicker.”
Excellent Service with a Local Connection
As a community organization, a personalized, local presence is an essential part of conducting business—and Walton just wasn’t feeling that from companies like Paycom and Zenefits.
“I had pretty much decided to go with Zenefits when I got a call from Netchex,” she explained. “Netchex had everything I was looking for and the representative was local. She was able to come to my office and speak with me. I also like that if I have a question, I can reach out to the Netchex team and they are quick to respond.”
