Celero, a proven solutions integrator, is proud to announce that the foundational suite of its Celero Xpress retail digital banking platform is now available and being tested by Assiniboine Credit Union in Manitoba.
The available suite, which includes both online and mobile capabilities, marks a major milestone in the development process to provide Canadian credit unions with the next generation capabilities for digital banking. Development of Celero Xpress began eight months ago, building on the award-winning ebankIT platform.
“This is an important milestone — not only for Celero — but for the future of digital transformation in Canada,” says Simon Vincent, Executive Vice President, Banking and Omnichannel Solutions at Celero.
New digital banking solution for Assiniboine
Assiniboine is the first prairie credit union to use Celero Xpress, which includes public website, online banking and mobile app capabilities. This version will be tested with credit union staff over the next few months as development on the platform continues. Assiniboine will offer full retail and small business capabilities to its 126,000 members later this year.
“When we embarked on this journey for a new digital banking platform – we envisioned the type of member experience we wanted to deliver. Our members told us they want a digital banking experience that is simple, intuitive, can be personalized to represent who they are as individuals, and has enhanced security features. Today marks another milestone in that journey. With this base set of capabilities, we can continue to hone and shape the solution to get Celero Xpress ready to meet the needs of our members,” says Jennifer Mullen-Berube, Chief Brand & Innovation Officer at Assiniboine Credit Union.
Assiniboine is part of a founding group of credit unions that have selected Celero Xpress, including Access Credit Union, Steinbach Credit Union, Synergy Credit Union and Connect First Credit Union.
As Celero, Assiniboine, and the other founding credit unions pass this milestone, work continues towards having the full suite of retail and small business capabilities available later this year. As well, Celero has kicked off work with its clients to help them prepare their migration activities that will quickly follow the Celero Xpress general availability release.
