Brookfield, Wis., May 2, 2019 – Carpathia Credit Union, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, along with Estonian Credit Union and PARAMA Credit Union, both based in Toronto, have selected Fiserv to modernize their operations and enable them to serve members more effectively in an increasingly digital banking environment.
All three credit unions have deep roots in their communities and were seeking a contemporary technology platform to automate and streamline operations, simplify the creation of new products, and activate a full range of integrated digital services for their members. In addition to advanced technology, the credit unions wanted a provider with a strong commitment to and presence in Canada.
The credit unions’ transition to their new banking system will be led by Canadian financial technology provider Celero. Celero has significant experience helping Canadian credit unions implement Fiserv solutions, and together the companies are facilitating the digital transformation of credit unions across Canada.
