Kony to Power Digital Initiative for Partners FCU

Enterprise app company Kony announced it has teamed up with Partners Federal Credit Union to accelerate the credit union’s new digital banking services.

Specifically, Kony will fuel Partners FCU’s Digital 2x initiative which focuses on accelerating the delivery of new digital banking services and enhancing the digital user experience. Partners FCU, which is the credit union for employees of the Walt Disney Company, hopes that its Digital 2x initiative will offer its 150,000 members a seamless, universal experience across all of its digital services.

The aim of Kony’s involvement in the initiative is two-fold. Partners FCU is planning for it “to deliver new digital banking services and capabilities” while at the same time “fostering an agile work environment to empower teams to quickly adapt to change.”

To chronicle the success of the partnership, the California-based credit union is creating a five-part documentary series highlighting key milestones in the credit union’s digital evolution. Check out the series overview video below:

In describing why his firm selected Kony, Partners FCU President and CEO John Janclaes said, “We wanted to work with the industry’s best digital master, so we selected Kony to be our trusted partner to help us on this digital journey. Our objective is to ensure we deliver innovative banking services seamlessly across both our digital and physical channels, and not only meet but exceed the expectations of our cast members today and in the future.”

Founded in 2007, Kony is a cloud-based application solutions company that seeks to help financial institutions of all sizes quickly bring their app ideas to market. The company specializes in omni-channel banking applications that offer an excellent user experience.

Kony’s CTO, Bill Bodin and Product Marketing Manager, Antonio Sanchez, recently showcased its Digital Banking Platform at FinovateFall 2017. In August of 2017, the company unveiled the Kony AppPlatform V8 that aims to help professional developers meet demand for apps and help organizations simplify the app development and deployment processes. And in October of last year, the company launched a new digital banking solution that leverages Daon’s biometric tools. Kony is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has raised more than $115 million.
