In addition, the institution will be able to easily add or develop new features as trends or needs emerge and user adoption increases.
By also leveraging ORCC’s bill payment services, Wings Financial benefits from an industry-leading Payment Guarantee and rich heritage of payment services that deliver reliable and accurate bill pay solutions, seamlessly integrated within Architect Banking. ORCC’s Electronic Biller Directory and proprietary Real-time Digital Scanline® technology maximizes payment accuracy for both Wings Financial and their members, resulting in faster payment delivery and fewer payment errors.
“For nearly 75 years, we have been dedicated to providing our unique member base with exceptional service, and by partnering with ORCC, we build on that tradition,” said David Mason, VP/CIO of Wings Financial. “Architect gives us a new level of system performance that enables us to grow in parallel with our members’ needs and be a leader in the deployment of today’s newest technologies – including mobile banking and bill payment applications.”
ORCC has established itself as an industry leader through its digital banking and bill payment solutions, enabling higher electronic rates, faster payment speed, and a consistent payment process for its clients and their end users. Additionally, ORCC has connections to core processors and ATM networks that provide real-time access to more than 90 percent of checking accounts in the United States and to the 9,000+ domestic biller endpoints within ORCC’s Biller Endpoint Network.
“With a keen understanding of today’s mobile consumer and the importance of digital banking technology, Wings Financial sets the standard for outstanding member service,” said Eric Labiak, ORCC’s chief sales officer. “The credit union continues to be on the cutting edge, and by implementing ORCC’s state-of-the-art Architect solution they are poised for future growth.
