System Upgrade

Blue Tangle

Dear Member,

Beginning on the evening of Friday, November 30th, continuing through the weekend and into the morning of Monday, December 3rd, our team at Pacific Crest will be performing our largest system upgrade in nearly twenty years. This update is necessary as part of our current system relies on technology that was developed over 40 years ago, and we have pushed its capabilities to their limits.  The upgraded system will provide us with a foundational platform that allows for the development of future enhancements and the ability to adapt to emerging technologies so we can continue to deliver great service for years to come.

We have a team of over a dozen very talented and dedicated staff who have been planning and preparing for this upgrade for over a year. The entire team is excited about the improved technology you, our member, will begin experiencing after the upgrade is complete. For one weekend, however, many of our services will be unavailable. We have developed this page to assist you in understanding both the upgrade weekend and what you can expect post-upgrade. Please review this page carefully.
