Kindred Launches Refreshed Online Banking

Kitchener — Kindred Credit Union (Kindred) is excited to announce the launch of its new and refreshed online banking. Developed in partnership with Central 1, Kindred’s online banking is built on a new, agile platform, giving the credit union a strong foundation for future development.

Kindred’s new online banking features a clean, fresh look with visual cues to prompt users. In most cases, functionality is unchanged, and many menus and action buttons are in the same location as text links were in the past, so the new site will feel familiar to current users. Plus, the site is built with responsive web design so it’s optimized for use on a mobile phone, tablet, or desktop computer. Additional information for members is available here: Launched! A Refreshing New Look for Online Banking

“We’re really excited to offer this enhanced digital banking experience to our members, notes Ian Thomas, chief executive officer. “It’s another proof point to show how we’re building new and improved digital solutions so more Ontarians can experience Banking with Purpose wherever they’re at.”

Working in partnership with Central 1, Kindred is reaping the benefits of collaborating with a valued partner that’s committed to driving innovation across the Canadian credit union sector. Sheila Vokey, Interim President and CEO at Central 1 notes that “this launch signifies an enhanced user experience and design for Kindred’s members. It’s one of many exciting enhancements to come that will keep our clients on the cusp of technology trends to provide quality digital banking experiences today and into the future.”

Kindred continues to expand its digital channel offering. The credit union offers digital membership opening, along with an enhanced mobile app, and a new website. In addition, Kindred’s Digital Lending launched this week and further app updates are under development.
