Edwards Federal Credit Union signs with Bankjoy to enhance home and mobile banking functionality
DETROIT, MI (June 1, 2018) — Looking to enhance the digital banking experience for its members, Edwards Federal Credit Union ($197 million; 14,700 members; Edwards, CA) has signed with online and mobile banking provider Bankjoy. Edwards will roll out their new solutions to members October 2018.
According to Edwards’ President/CEO Roy MacKinnon, Bankjoy has a smart looking interface with excellent functionality, more affordable solutions, and they have existing CUProdigy clients. Mackinnon and his team chose Bankjoy because the credit union’s current provider didn’t have an interface solution that worked with its new CUProdigy core system. Edwards will launch Bankjoy digital banking simultaneously with the CUProdigy core conversion October 2018.
“We are very excited to partner with Bankjoy,” says MacKinnon. “We look forward to helping push them to continue innovating in this space, including new approaches to using the channel for push marketing strategies.”
Additionally, the fact that Bankjoy is a fairly new technology player to the credit union industry with its fresh interface played a significant role in Edwards signing with them. Bankjoy was founded in 2015.
“We are extremely pleased to have such a forward-thinking credit union join our Bankjoy family,” states Bankjoy CEO Michael Duncan. “In addition to providing them with modernized digital banking, we look forward to equipping them with our banking API that will enable them to deliver the most innovative FinTech solutions in the market to their members.”
