Wellington IT's birthday! We started out in the drinks distribution business, but one of our co-founders was a board member of a local Credit Union, and recognised a gap in the market for a core financial system, and Scion (as it's known now) was born!


As Credit Unions began to scale, new levels of automation were introduced in the 90s, inc. standing orders, direct debits and atms.

Wellington IT integrated our core processing system, Capital 2000 (predecessor to Locus) with our first customer, Tullamore Credit Union. We're proud to say that they are still customers today!


The first Credit Union ATMs were introduced in Ireland.


The new millennium brought with it a surge of innovative ideas that transformed Credit Unions. Heralding these changes was the creation of the first Windows- based Credit Union banking system in Ireland, Locus (predecessor to Scion). While previous back office systems had been little more than simplistic green screens with fields to enter information, Locus offered a more user-friendly way for Credit Union staff to view member accounts.


Waterford Credit Union became the first ISO 27001 certified Credit Union in the world, and the first certified financial institution in Europe.


The first online banking facility was launched, cuOnline. members could now pay bills, transfer funds and apply for loans, all online.


Bishopstown Credit Union became the first community Credit Union to launch their own debit card in Europe.


It became possible to make the data that Credit Union already had, work for them. Business intelligence software allowed CUs to create targeted marketing campaigns, and deep-dive into how their members interact with services.


Credit Unions became members of the Single European Payments Area (SEPA) meaning members could pay into their Credit Union accounts from anywhere in Europe.


Volaris Group, a part of Constellation Software, acquire Wellington IT, with an ultimate goal of strengthening and growing the company, so we'll be here for our customers; always.


Challenger banks, who offer a fully digital experience, have raised expectations. The implementation of Touch ID technology into our online platforms meant that members could access their accounts on the go using the fingerprint reader on their smartphones.


Wellington IT launched their very first Product Development Roadmap. Our Roadmap is released every single year and is created in collaboration with our customers.


Brought around a lot of changes to both Credit Unions. An even bigger focus was around digital platforms, so mobile apps and online lending. Loan offerings such as Revolving Credit gave members more flexibility and choice when it came to taking out a loan.


Wellington IT integrated our core system and digital suite with Decision Engines, meaning your Credit Unions can boost the quality of your loan book and in the following year, grant loans automatically!


Saw the launch of Open Banking. Open Banking, coupled with Decision-as-a-Service ensures your members receive the best member service as well as generating huge efficiencies for your CU.


Saw new legislation brought into Ireland that allowed Credit Unions greater capacity to offer mortgages to their members. This was game-changing, providing the public more choice when it came and providing CU’s the opportunity to grow their loan book.

2023 also saw Irish Credit Unions be crowned the winners of the Customer Experience Award for the 9th year running!
