to stay at the forefront of banking
June 30, 2021 – Steinbach Credit Union (SCU) is happy to announce it has launched a new digital banking platform to provide highly secure and intuitive banking experiences to its members.
This complete digital banking platform enables SCU members to conveniently bank from their desktop or mobile app, using a modern interface that makes it easy for members to monitor their personal and business finances, manage their accounts, and securely complete banking transactions.
“With the launch of our new digital banking platform, we continue to deliver on our commitment to our members to provide solutions that enable them to save and spend wisely,” said Glenn Friesen, Chief Executive Officer of SCU. “This new platform provides members with the convenience, access and control they need to manage their personal and business finances in an increasingly digital world.”
Member-centric, innovation-driven platform
As Manitoba’s largest credit union, SCU is committed to investing in innovative technologies that both simplify and enhance banking experiences for its 100,000 members. This new digital banking platform delivers features that enable SCU to continue to address market changes and member needs.
“We chose to enhance the digital banking experience we provide to our members to effectively meet and exceed their needs – today and in the future. This new platform provides smart and intuitive ways for members to manage their money. It will enable SCU to build on our investment and continue to deliver flexible banking solutions that support members on their financial journey,” says SCU’s Chief Retail and Brand Officer, Celina Philpot.
The platform SCU chose is Celero Xpress™, which was jointly created by Celero, a leading provider of technology and integration solutions to Canadian credit unions and financial institutions, and ebankIT, an award-winning company with a proprietary, leading, digital banking platform.
Chief Information and Technology Officer at SCU, Andy Alguire added, “With the support of Celero, and our investment in Celero Xpress and Celero Xchange integration platform, all credit unions now have the ability to plan and execute their digital futures. A huge thank you to everyone for their contributions to this successful migration.”
“We value SCU’s partnership with Celero and their confidence in us as we helped them turn their digital ambitions into a reality with the launch of Celero Xpress. SCU has a deep commitment to their members to provide secure and convenient solutions that keep pace with a digitally driven world. Their launch of Celero Xpress delivers on that promise,” says Richard Hannah, CEO, Celero.
“We want to congratulate Steinbach Credit Union for its new digital banking experience. The adoption of the ebankIT omnichannel platform demonstrates how credit unions can successfully undertake the shift to a new digital-first era. Since the lockdown, technological transformations are happening so abruptly that credit unions and banks can no longer wait to build their own architecture and platforms. To avoid losing the digital race, financial institutions need to find ready-to-use solutions, with an omnichannel approach, prepared to integrate with other third-parties that bring an advanced roadmap of innovation,” says Renato Oliveira, founder & CEO, ebankIT.
