Providence, RI (MMD Newswire) December 13, 2012 -- Andera, a financial software company that simplifies online account opening and lending for banks and credit unions, announced that Gesa Credit Union has selected the oFlows multi-channel account opening platform.
Founded in 1953 and headquartered in Richland, Washington, Gesa Credit Union is one of the largest credit unions in the state of Washington. It has more than 110,000 members and $1.2 billion in assets.
"One of our strategic goals for 2013 and the future is to improve our branches, and our electronic, online and mobile service offerings, because convenient access is critical for our members," said Gesa Chief Information Officer Raj Bandaru.
