ST. PAUL, Minn.–Affinity Plus FCU has selected Fiserv as its new technology provider.
The $2-billion APFCU will implement the Architect digital banking solution from Fiserv as part of its multi-channel approach to supporting members in branches, over the phone, and through digital channels, Fiserv said.
“Affinity Plus selected Architect as the right platform to help meet members’ requests for a robust digital banking experience. The credit union valued the fact that Fiserv has worked with a landscape of credit unions in similar situations,” Brookfield, Wis.-based Fiserv said.
“Our members let us know they want a simple, intuitive, reliable and improved way to bank with us digitally,” said Dave Larson, president and CEO with Affinity Plus, in a statement. “Fiserv shares our vision for the experience we want to provide for our members, and they have the size and expertise to provide the selection of capabilities we need to deliver.”
The Architect platform chosen by Affinity Plus supports the member-experience principles that drive the credit union’s mobile-first strategy, according to Fiserv. Architect enables online, mobile, and tablet banking, facilitating a seamless user experience across channels. The platform can also be customized by the credit union, giving Affinity Plus the opportunity to put the precise needs of its members first. Architect will allow Affinity Plus to deliver digital self-service banking to more than 130,000 online and mobile members, Fiserv noted.
“For many members, their primary way of engaging with the credit union is through digital channels,” said Kevin Schultz, group president, digital banking, Fiserv. “Because of this, people place high value on the digital banking experience. That experience can be a differentiator for credit unions like Affinity Plus that deliver capabilities that are in step with the way people live their lives.”
Architect is part of the Fiserv portfolio of digital solutions that delivers robust digital banking and electronic payments functionality. The solution features a software development kit (SDK) that gives financial institutions the control to customize and expand the solution when and how they want, Fiserv said.
