LEHI, UT (May 6, 2019) — MX, one of the fastest growing fintech providers, and Hughes Federal Credit Union (Hughes) announced that Hughes will enhance its digital capabilities with MX Helios for its mobile platform in an effort to deliver a seamless digital experience to members.

We feel the Helios mobile platform from MX integrated with Architect from Fiserv gives us the right platform to compete. We’re excited to partner with them on this venture.”

“As the established leader in data for credit unions, we’re excited to be helping Hughes increase the adoption of their mobile banking through our Helios platform, data aggregation, data enhancement and data analytics,” said Ryan Caldwell, CEO of MX. “As we’ve been working closely with them to build a world-class mobile banking experience for
their members, we’re also helping those same members to be empowered with financial strength.”
