Celero and ASAPP Online Solutions expand relationship

May 01, 2017
Calgary AB and Toronto ON (May 1, 2017).  Following last September’s joint announcement by Celero and ASAPP Online Solutions around a collaborative market initiative to offer Canadian credit unions an online platform that makes account opening faster and easier, we are pleased to announce the expansion of this relationship.

In March, Celero became ASAPP’s preferred sales and distribution partner for their Online Solutions software in Canada. ASAPP is Canada’s most complete omnichannel account origination and loan auto-decisioning solution for retail and small business banking.

Effective today, Northern Credit Union (an existing, ASAPP, Celero and Fiserv customer) has leveraged ASAPP’s technology to become the first financial services entity in Canada to offer a fully integrated and fully responsive online account opening/loan decisioning solution for retail and business banking accounts.
ASAPP is the first and only hosted solution in Canada currently supporting integration with Fiserv’s DNA core banking platform.

The expanded relationship between ASAPP and Celero means Celero’s sales and marketing team is now working hand-in-hand with ASAPP’s product development and configuration team to identify client needs and support the licensing, configuration and implementation of ASAPP software.

The digital onboarding application allows both new and existing members of credit unions to open deposit accounts, investment accounts and apply for loans or mortgages. Small business owners can also use ASAPP to open small business accounts and apply for lines of credit. Compatible with mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop environments, the ASAPP software works on most browsers and can be used anywhere with a web connection.

“Canadian credit unions are looking for a fully integrated omnichannel solution for account origination and loan decisioning that is supported by trusted partners,” says J.R. Pierman, president, ASAPP Online Solutions. “We are excited about our partnership with the Celero team to bring the ASAPP software platform to financial institutions across Canada.”

ASAPP is FINTRAC compliant and has an unprecedented level of configurability to represent a credit union’s unique brand and product offerings to the market.  

“We understand the financial services marketplace is evolving at a rapid pace and our clients are looking for innovative fintech solutions that enrich the overall experience they have with their members.  We are pleased to partner with ASAPP to bring this software solution forward to help Canadian credit unions grow their membership and improve their back office business and risk management processes” says Simon Vincent, Chief Commercial Officer, Celero.

Both ASAPP and Celero look forward to showcasing the ASAPP solution at the upcoming CCUA conference in Halifax next week.
