Wellington IT has partnered with identity-tech leader GBG to improve its online banking offering for credit union clients.
Wellington IT provides specialist services to credit unions, including core financial system, online and member services including a mobile app, the ability to offer current accounts, as well as a full IT-managed service.
Wellington IT wanted to enhance its digital member onboarding solution with an automated, sleek and modern experience for its credit union members, while also optimising its staff’s time.
ID&V is available to the 20+ customers who have signed up to Wellington IT’s new mobile app, cuMobile, and the response has been great so far.
Michael Byrne, CEO, Core Credit Union said “We’re using automated ID verification as part of our Digital Member Onboarding solution which is extremely efficient, reduces the time to open an account and provides a very good member experience. The liveness test provides a sleek, modern experience for new members and the report is extremely beneficial from a compliance and KYC point of view. Despite a decrease in new accounts due to Covid, almost a quarter of our new members are joining digitally”.
Andy Chrascina, Sales Director at GBG said: “We’re delighted to partner with Wellington IT and all their clients to help enhance the digital banking experience. This is part of our ongoing vision to ensure that we can help businesses solve their current challenges relating to ID whilst planning for their future operational requirements.”
Wellington IT Chief Operating Officer Ian Glenn said: “We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with GBG to help us support our customers through innovative solutions. IDScan catapults credit unions into the modern market, providing a sleek and modern experience for their members, whilst generating efficiencies for staff at the same time. Staff no longer need to spend time manually analysing and comparing IDs, giving them time back to focus on other value-generating activities.”
