Products Implemented at 14 Credit Unions Across the Country
Austin, Tex., February 24, 2015: Jwaala, a leading provider of mobile and online banking
solutions to U.S. financial institutions, today released highlights of a very successful 2014. During that year, 14 credit unions deployed Jwaala products, accounting for 17 total implementations between the company’s Better Online Banking™ and Better Mobile Banking™.
Numerica Credit Union, a $1.4B institution based in Spokane, Wash., already used Jwaala for
online banking and decided that it made sense to consolidate online and mobile under one vendor. “Our old mobile vendor’s integration was limited, so over time, it seemed like we were duplicating a lot of effort to keep everything working,” said KayCee Murray, the credit union’s Assistant Vice President of EDevelopment. “Moving to Jwaala for mobile enabled us to easily add the features that our members want.” She added that she contacted several of her peers who are using Better Mobile Banking to get their unfiltered feedback before making a final decision.
Tech CU (Technology Credit Union), a $1.8B institution based in San Jose, Calif., developed its own Web-based online banking platform in the early 2000s, but the credit union wanted to increase maintenance efficiency in order to keep up with emerging technologies.
“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do to improve our members’ experience,” said Kevin Alsup, Tech CU’s Vice President of Information and Administration. “So, we pulled together a project team of functional and technical employees and evaluated five different platforms. Jwaala was a natural fit because their technology is progressive and easy to manage.”
“This was a very exciting year for us,” said Jwaala CEO Andrew Taylor. “We’re committed to creating a frictionless user experience, and our success in 2014 shows that the marketplace has embraced this concept.”
Based in Austin, Tex., and founded in 2006, Jwaala creates online and mobile banking solutions for U.S. financial institutions. Built on a modern and open-systems framework, Jwaala’s product suite provides a self-service platform unmatched in functionality and flexibility.
