Flagship Project - ACCU

Launching a robust shared payments platform in Asia

accu

Software Group and Temenos developed a shared payment platform for credit unions in Asia, running on the Microsoft Azure cloud.

 

The goal was to help credit unions expand their market outreach and efficiently deliver financial services to their members through online payment channels (web-based teller, mobile banking, debit cards for ATM and POS transactions), without initial capital investment or ongoing IT costs.

 

The ACCU is a regional group of national credit-union associations and second-tier financial institutions. It serves more than 21,947 credit unions with 38.1 million members in 26 countries across Asia.

 

The project was launched with 100% uptime and zero critical issues and has already supported more than 1 million EMV transactions.
