This collaboration is the latest addition to Engage’s DASHboard™ ecosystem, an end-to-end cloud based digital banking, payments and back-office solution that revolutionises operations for credit unions. These can expect to see huge efficiency cost savings including an immediate reduction in workload and administration duties. The new system includes:

And much more.

The white-label solution can be customised for each credit union, delivering benefits including a comprehensive online members area (similar to digital banking), a branded digital mobile app and even instant decisions on loan applications 24/7, 365 days a year.

It integrates seamlessly with the award-winning Engage bank payments platform and provides credit unions with unique sort codes and account numbers across all their products, as well as access to payment services including low-cost faster payments, direct debits and credit union branded Visa debit card.

Geoff Leech, MD of Engage commented: “British credit unions are struggling to win new members, which is unfortunate given the massive gap in the market for affordable, ethical loans and saving products. Incorporating Caroma into the Engage offer can revolutionise the credit union market by bringing a world class solution that has every accreditation for financial stability, trust, security and regulatory requirements, not to mention speed of delivery to meet members’ needs. Its flexible configuration ensures its open to all credit unions and Community banks.”
