cuEngage Live! saw the announcement of Wellington IT’s new API Gateway!

cuEngage Live!

The 19th June 2024 saw our first in-person event in 5 years; the return of cuEngage Live!

Over 150 people gathered in the stunning and sustainable Dublin Royal Convention Centre to network, collaborate, and most importantly, discuss how to ‘Unlock the Next Generation Credit Union’.

The day consisted of 4 x engaging breakout sessions, led by a mix of Wellington IT staff and external speakers, which covered;

  • Captivating the Next Generation Member; the key to sustainable growth
  • Staying ahead of the curve; powering success through D.O.R.A and SEPA Instant Payments
  • Get your head IN the cloud
  • Lending for success; paving the way for sustainable growth

These breakout sessions proved to be extremely engaging, collaborative and valuable, with some brilliant actions and takeaways as tangible outputs.


We were delighted to also be joined by 20 industry partners to the Credit Union sector, all with one key focus in mind; helping Credit Unions grow and succeed.

During the welcome address, Ian Glenn, CEO at Wellington IT spoke of the importance of having third party partners as part of cuEngage Live!

“One of the reasons I am so pleased with the number of partners who are in attendance today is that, here at Wellington IT, we strongly believe that to support our customers growth agenda, it is crucial to build a scalable Credit Union ecosystem. This is achieved by engaging with like-minded partner organisations who share a vision and passion for the sector. It also requires technology and infrastructure that enables, supports and provides scalability to systems integration”.​

Wellington IT’s new API Gateway

Although an open approach to integration is not new at Wellington IT, over the past 12 months we have been focused on developing and adopting a standardised approach to how key services are technically delivered. This is critical to underpin our Credit Unions’ ecosystem approach and provide them with flexibility and choice.

The API gateway provides business process microservices, which enables the Wellington IT core system to be extended via API’s to integrate to third party systems. A wide range of integration capabilities will be supported at launch including: ​

  • Member Onboarding & Share Account Creation ​
  • Member Consent Update​
  • Document Upload ​
  • Loan Applications
  • View Member Details
  • And many more.

“Great to hear the launch of an API Gateway by Wellington IT. Wellington have long embraced working with partners and third party integration, but an official API Gateway will supercharge Credit Unions using the Scion platform”.

Michael Byrne

CEO, Core Credit Union
