MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA – April 27, 2015 – Akcelerant, a wholly owned subsidiary of Temenos USA Inc. and provider of software and services to the financial industry, presented its ninth annual Pioneer Award to Grow Financial Federal Credit Union during the Opening Ceremony of the 2015 Akcelerant Customer Educational Conference. The award is given out at each conference to one financial institution that has demonstrated a continued contribution to the advancement of new technology with Akcelerant.
Grow Financial, a Symitar user with over $2 billion in assets and more than 175,000 members, began 2014 by selecting the Akcelerant Framework loan origination solution and ended the year by becoming an early adopter for the Framework account origination solution, including virtual capture functionality for web, mobile and tablets. The Florida-based credit union has demonstrated their commitment to helping Akcelerant advance its technology by participating in the development and real-world application of the account origination solution. Input received from Grow Financial has directly influenced the new product, which will be released for general availability later this year.
“Grow Financial has a very dynamic growth strategy. We know what we want to do and we know where we’re going and it’s very targeted,” shares Grow Financial’s SVP, Retail Lending and Loss Prevention, Dona Svehla. “The experience needs to be quick, easy and seamless. From a lending perspective, if it takes a long time, you’ve lost the loan. What we value most about Akcelerant is their commitment to an open dialogue and discussing what ideas they have, what ideas we have, and ultimately expanding and enhancing their products to create the best, most dynamic solutions. We look forward to more exciting results and a continued strong relationship.”
“Every year we have the challenge and honor of awarding just one of our customers for their efforts in innovation and collaboration on Akcelerant technology,” adds Akcelerant President and COO, Emily Steele. “We challenge ourselves and our customers to push the boundaries of expectation and come up with new results, and in this Grow Financial has been a prominent partner. We are proud to present them with this award.”
