    Tandia unveils a new light, agile and responsive online banking experience

    July 22, 2020 (Burlington ON) 

    Tandia Financial Credit Union is proud to be a leader in launching a new online banking experience for members. Developed in partnership with Central 1 and officially launched last week, Tandia is one of the first Credit Unions in Canada to release a light, agile and responsive banking experience on the Forge Digital Banking platform.

    “At Tandia, innovation is one of our core values. We continually strive to be at the forefront of technologies that will help us deliver a better banking experience for our members”, says Richard Davies, President and CEO of Tandia. ‘With the launch of our new online banking platform, we are delivering on our commitment to continually provide our members with market-leading technology.”

    Using a global-leading omni-channel banking solution as the foundation, the technology behind the new online banking experience provides a modern and streamlined platform that is designed to transform the user experience. With this new foundation, Tandia is now solidly positioned to respond and adapt quickly as new digital banking functions, features and member expectations evolve in the future. 


    “It’s incredible to see so many financial institutions coming together on the Forge Digital Banking Platform to bring a refined digital experience to their members and customers,” says Mark Blucher, President and CEO of Central 1. “As user needs and trends evolve very quickly, it’s crucial to have a digital banking solution designed to adapt and pivot with these needs in mind to best support Canadians. Congratulations to Tandia Financial Credit Union!”

    Mr. Davies added, “The timing for introduction took into consideration our members’ increased reliance on digital banking during this pandemic period. We are continuing to offer our former online banking system in parallel, giving members a choice and some time to try out and adopt our new online banking experience.” 

    In keeping with the new online banking experience, a new and improved mobile app experience is also in the works for later in 2020. We anticipate a fall introduction of an enhanced Tandia™ Mobile app and will share more details with members closer to the anticipated fall launch date.
