SmartSolution gains first core banking tech client in Central America, Blue Creek Credit Union
Blue Creek Credit Union (BCCU) in Belize is implementing a new core processing system, Universa, supplied by Canadian banking tech vendor SmartSolution.
This the first project in Belize (and Central America) for the vendor, and it says it “is excited to branch out geographically”.
Established in 1981, BCCU offers checking, shares and savings accounts, as well as personal and business loans.
Brendan Teigrob, general manager of BCCU, says the credit union is “very much looking forward to implementing the Universa platform”.
SmartSolution has been around for four decades, providing banking systems and financial management solutions to banks, trusts and credit unions in Canada and the Caribbean. It is based in Ontario.
Among Universa’s users are Manchester Co-operative Credit Union in Jamaica, St Stanislaus-St Casimir’s Polish Parishes Credit Union, Korean (Toronto) Credit Union, CCEC Credit Union, Vancouver Firefighters’ Credit Union, Greater Vancouver Community Credit Union and Slovenia Credit Union.
