At the end of February 2024, St Canice’s Kilkenny Credit Union introduced their latest offering to members: a 2-year fixed term deposit account product. The launch marked a significant milestone for the Credit Union, showcasing their commitment to providing diverse and competitive financial solutions tailored to their members’ needs. 


Collaborating for Success

St Canice’s Credit Union worked closely alongside Wellington IT’s Professional Services Team to understand their specific product requirements, outlining the key features and functionalities desired, setting the stage for a streamlined development process. 

Utilising the team’s expertise, the product was meticulously crafted and subsequently implemented on a test system for thorough user testing. Throughout this phase, John provided invaluable guidance, offering step-by-step procedures that facilitated the Credit Union’s own internal processes, particularly in establishing Deposit Account procedures. 

“One of the standout qualities of John’s support was his accessibility and clarity in communication. Whenever questions arose, John was readily available to provide clarification, ensuring a smooth and efficient development journey. His ability to convey complex concepts in a straightforward manner proved invaluable to our team.”
