Steinbach Credit Union (“SCU”), in partnership with Celero and ASAPP Online Solutions, is launching a state-of-the-art digital account opening platform to serve members anytime, anywhere.
With over $5.4B in total assets, SCU is Manitoba’s largest credit union, and the eighth largest in Canada. With ASAPP, SCU’s 88,000+ current members can now select and open a multitude of banking products online. From chequing and savings accounts to Term Deposits, Registered Savings Plans (RSPs) and Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs)—all can be acquired in a matter of minutes in mobile, tablet, or desktop environments.
ASAPP’s advanced technology provides SCU’s existing and prospective members with anytime access to their banking products. The straightforward, intuitive solution offers omni-channel capabilities. This is especially relevant because, while SCU is one of the country’s largest credit unions, it serves its membership out of three branches. The omni-channel account origination solution uniquely positions SCU with a flexible footprint that supports the credit union’s strategy to increase digital delivery of service to members and grow its business.
“With ASAPP, we’ve made great strides to become one of the most digitally enabled financial institutions in Canada,” says Andy Alguire, Vice President, Information Technology, Steinbach Credit Union. “With our value-based financial products, paired with innovations in technology, we’re in a great position to help our members improve their financial well-being and achieve what’s important to them.”
Celina Philpot, Steinbach’s Executive Vice President Member Engagement and Brand, adds, “We realize in today’s financial world, it’s all about the experience - providing members with an easy, straightforward and rewarding way to save and earn. ASAPP allows us to deliver an unparalleled member experience, which is aligned with our commitment to helping our members reach their financial goals.”
Ryan Yates, Vice President, Strategy, for ASAPP, concludes, “We’re excited to partner with Celero and bring SCU’s digital member acquisition strategy to market. SCU is a leader among credit unions—a forward-thinking financial institution - that recognizes the importance of digital delivery as part of its branch distribution service model. Partnering with SCU, along with other credit unions in Manitoba, is exciting and rewarding for our team, and will be even more so for their valued members.”
