PSCU Touts GTE FCU, Affinity Plus Contract Wins
PSCU Financial Services of St. Petersburg, Fla., said it has signed two billion-dollar credit unions as the newest users of its online banking solutions.
They are the $1.5 billion GTE FCU in nearby Tampa and $1.3 billion Affinity Plus FCU in St. Paul, Minn.
GTE FCU will be retiring an online banking platform it built in-house and converting to PSCU’s eBanking platform’s integrated online, mobile and voice channels, as well as deploying the CUSO’s PayLynx bill service.
“This solution will allow our staff to be focused on member service, not electronic product development,” said GTE CIO Chad Burney.
Affinity Plus has signed a seven-year deal to add online banking to its bill pay relationship with PSCU, allowing the Minnesota CU to “focus on developing an integrated, expanded virtual branch environment for their members,” PSCU said.
The credit union cited the online banking platform’s ability to perform external transfers and integrate with Yodlee. “This enables Affinity Plus to remain the primary financial institution even if a member has accounts at other institutions,” said Nic Peterson, the credit union’s vice president of member innovation.
PSCU said it has about 1,500 clients overall, including about 500 using its electronic banking services, primarily bill pay.
