Rosenort Credit Union chooses ASAPP’s digital account and loan origination solution

November 28, 2018
Manitoba credit union selects member onboarding tool to empower their growth strategy and offer ease and convenience to current and future members

Manitoba-based Rosenort Credit Union is adding anytime, anywhere, any device, account opening and loan origination capabilities for their members.

The credit union recently selected ASAPP’s omnichannel account opening solution for retail and small business banking. The digital tool will allow Rosenort’s members to open accounts and apply for products using an intuitive digital platform that completes the process in as little as 5-7 minutes.

“At Rosenort Credit Union, our vision is to 'help people help themselves' and we have been serving our members for almost 80 years," said Brad Penner, Rosenort Credit Union’s chief executive officer. "While advances in digital technology have redefined and expanded what this means, it is still a basic tenet of what we stand for. Providing a digital option for members to open accounts whenever they want to, while helping to improve the workflow for accounts opened in the branch, is an important way to achieve this."

Digitally enabled member onboarding and automated account opening is a necessity for financial institutions that are looking to leverage their digital strategies to grow their businesses. Canadian fintech ASAPP has built momentum in the market with their omnichannel solution that is fully responsive and fully integrated with the DNA® core banking system from Fiserv. An aggressive product roadmap, including Canada’s first omnichannel integration of inline creditor insurance, amongst a continuously growing list of functionality and features, has helped ASAPP increase ROI for its credit union partners.

Seven Canadian credit unions use ASAPP currently, and four more are planning to launch in the next three to six months.

ASAPP has differentiated itself in the market by providing a member-first completely digital process. Other available solutions are essentially form data collection tools with a promise for follow-up from the contact centre. In addition to account opening, the ASAPP digital platform allows credit unions to offer their members digital lending for secured and unsecured loans, including lines of credit and mortgages, with real-time approval and risk-based rate determination.

“Credit unions understand they need an account opening and lending solution that offers ease and convenience to their members, but to also realize back office efficiency gains, better credit decisions and faster lending processes,” said J.R. Pierman, president of ASAPP. “Digital onboarding is a foundational element of any credit union’s digital strategy.”

Rosenort plans to launch their customized version of the ASAPP solution to their members in Q1 of 2019.
