Celero Xpress™ is one step closer to launch readiness, as Assiniboine Credit Union begins the second pilot phase of Celero’s new digital banking platform, which includes small business capabilities.
The Manitoba credit union has extended the use of the platform, which has a public website, online banking and mobile app capabilities, to more credit union staff to test additional retail features and experience the small business suite.
“Our initial testing with Celero Xpress has proven the stability of the platform and the intuitiveness of its many capabilities,” says Jennifer Mullen-Berube, Chief Brand & Innovation Officer at Assiniboine Credit Union, the first prairie credit union to use Celero Xpress.
“As we enter this next phase, we are excited to continue to expand our use of Celero Xpress to realize our vision for an innovative, intuitive and secure digital member experience, particularly for our small business members,” she adds.
Delivering advanced capabilities
To date, Celero has delivered the majority of the platform features into pilot, which includes a range of innovative features that will enable credit unions who choose Celero Xpress to thrive in an increasingly competitive industry.
From seamless account origination and payment management to unique small business features like delegate management and alerts, Celero Xpress delivers on the capabilities that were originally envisioned in collaboration with credit unions across Canada.
“Working closely with client-partners like Assiniboine has resulted in a platform that will successfully serve credit unions today – and in the future. We are thrilled to be nearing the completion of development journey of Celero Xpress, enabling our clients to move forward and achieve their digital transformation goals,” says Dean Rathwell, General Manager, Digital Banking at Celero.
More credit unions onboarding
While Assiniboine continues to broaden its pilot of Celero Xpress, more prairie credit unions prepare to begin their own pilot phases, with Synergy Credit Union in Saskatchewan in late July and Connect First Credit Union in Alberta onboarding in August.
These credit unions are part of a founding group that selected Celero Xpress; they will test additional features like mobile deposit capture and CRA business payments and will also be the first achieve complete implementations of the platform, which start in Fall 2020.
