Holiday Coast Credit Union (Holiday Coast) has commenced a journey to create a fully integrated banking platform to provide efficient operating systems and processes, whilst providing improved digital banking capabilities to deliver the 'Amazing Banking Experience.'

A key component to the transformation is the commitment to a long term partnership Ultradata Australia to deliver the technology solutions required.

Much, much more than just a technical upgrade all areas of Holiday Coast will be affected - from branch to administration, policies, processes, methods using the latest Ultradata solutions based on the Ultracs 5 release to create efficiencies and automate processes wherever possible.

The key driver will be the integration of Ultradata core and digital banking systems to be delivered in a two year program of work that will incrementally see enormous benefits to members - as well as access to the upcoming New Payments Platform in 2018

Holiday Coast CEO, Neville Parsons, said, “The end result is a fully integrated banking and communication system that will meet the needs of the predominantly mobile banking self-serving digital customer of the 21st century”.

The project work has already commenced with internal Holiday Coast project teams working closely with Ultradata to implement key upgrades quickly - by the end of 2017 the first stage will be completed with rolling updates thereafter.

Ultradata CEO Peter Henshaw commented that “the work is exciting - a real opportunity for Ultradata to showcase the power of combining core banking and digital services to deliver a fantastic banking experience for the members of Holiday Coast and build a platform for their future growth. Everyone at Ultradata is really proud of the opportunity Holiday Coast has given us to partner with them.
