“We are delighted that COKCU has chosen to migrate to our growing family of financial institutions using the Universa platform to support its member service strategies,” stated Iean Tait, President and CEO of Smart Solution. “This is a big step for COKCU as it transitions away from a completely customized in-house, self-maintained system that has served them well for many years. After a very thorough vendor analysis, we are extremely proud to have been chosen as the vendor with the best technology platform, track record and expertise. We are excited to work with such a large, progressive institution and we are fully committed to partnering with COKCU to enable them to deliver on their mandate. As technological excellence is the backbone of any institution, having selected Universa is a testimony to its scalable architecture, flexibility and rich functionality,” added Iean Tait. “Many institutions are looking for ways to keep up with new and emerging market technologies; the switch to Universa will provide them with the needed tools to meet those challenges and embrace the future.”
