Central 1 Credit Union (Central 1) has signed an exclusive agreement with ClickSWITCH that gives credit union customers the ability to move their recurring payments and deposits from one financial institution to another with just a few clicks of a button.

Integrated into the MemberDirect® Services and PaymentStream™ Direct platforms, ClickSWITCH automates and streamlines the switching process, making it easy for new and existing account holders to consolidate their banking products and services with one financial institution.

“It’s a major hassle for consumers to move their pre-authorized credits and debits. The integration of ClickSWITCH into our online banking platform makes the experience painless,” said Kelly West, AVP Product Management at Central 1. “We chose to partner with ClickSWITCH because they understood the importance of a seamless user experience.”

“We are confident that Central 1 is the perfect partner for ClickSWITCH as we continue to grow in the Canadian market,” said Cale Johnson, CEO, ClickSWITCH. “I’m thrilled that Central 1’s credit union clients now have access to our fast and easy switch solution, which will provide great benefits to both financial institutions and their members.”

This news follows the October 4 announcement of Central 1’s fully integrated member origination solution, Open Anywhere™, which enables prospective members to open and fund new accounts online in minutes, using their mobile phone, tablet or desktop.

“Open Anywhere allows credit unions to acquire new members anytime, anywhere,” said Margarita Lurye, Senior Product Manager of Consumer Online Banking at Central 1. “The addition of ClickSWITCH makes it a very powerful onboarding tool that provides credit unions a great opportunity to deepen relationships with members.”
