Credit Union selects Connect for Online Banking, Mobile, Online Account Opening, and Customized Capabilities.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Connect Financial Software Solutions today announced a multi-year agreement with Credit Union West.  With more than 49,000 members and $474 million in assets, Credit Union West selected Connect for its suite of Online Banking, Mobile, Online Account Opening, and custom channel solutions.

Scott Grundy, Vice President of Technology of Credit Union West said “We performed an in-depth review of online banking providers, and finalized our decision in favor of Connect.  We really liked how they automate the channel and the vision being applied now and going forward.  Another key factor for us is the integration of Connects’ Online Banking and Online Account Open solutions, helping extend features and functionality that disparate solutions just can’t deliver.  Their approach of seeking ways to leverage technology to solve problems and help us to meet our strategic objectives was unique and refreshing, and they deliver the horsepower to get it all accomplished.”

According to Joe Long, Vice President of Connect, “We have been working with the Credit Union West team for some time, hearing where they wanted to take the channel and how they wanted to get there.  Being able to deliver the scalability and innovation of a hosted delivery, while enabling the control of an in-house deployment was a solution that worked best for their organization overall. ”
