BCU Launches Fingerprint Account Access

Ballincollig Credit Union Launches Fingerprint Account Access

Our partnership with Wellington IT means our members get access to cutting-edge smartphone technology

Ballincollig Credit Union members can now access their accounts on the go using the fingerprint reader on their smartphone or tablet. This service uses a combination of QR-code and fingerprint scan as a secure convenient gateway to the Ballincollig Credit Union online banking portal, cuOnline and smartphone app cuAnywhere.

This means members of Ballincollig Credit Union’s common bond now have the latest technology available to access online banking to check their balance, view statements, transfer funds and pay bills from anywhere in a way which is secure, convenient and free of charge Ballincollig Credit Union members.

Mark Horgan, I.T. & Marketing Manager of Ballincollig Credit Union remarked: We here at BCU are delighted with our long-term partnership with Wellington IT. We are now in the position to offer Fingerprint Account Access to our members. We hope that it will make the online use of our BCU App easier to use for all members and encourage members to set up online access and register to avail of this fantastic new facility.

Kevin Bradley, Managing Director, Wellington IT said “We have partnered with Ballincollig Credit Union helping them grow by providing innovative solutions that allow them to offer the best member services. Last year, we introduced a strategy to partner with specialist Fintech companies to provide expertise in specific areas.  This combined with our experience means we can offer our customers solutions that help them better compete with other financial institutions.  Our work with TouchTech proves we can introduce new technologies to our customers’ existing technology platform with reduced risk.”
