FreedomPay Adopts Credit Union Financial Exchange Standards

FreedomPay®, the world’s most innovative commerce platform, announced today that it has implemented Credit Union Financial Exchange (CUFX) standards on its Commerce Platform and that Baxter Credit Union (BCU), a flagship CUFX member, has deployed the solution to provide corporate customers with the opportunity to make cashless payments.

The CUNA Technology Council initiated the CUFX standards project to address integration issues on behalf of all credit unions. Experts from leading credit unions and top vendors have come together to develop technology standards that will make product and service integration across the credit union industry faster, easier and more cost-effective. CUFX standards will expedite implementations, reduce core costs, speed revenue recognition through faster implementations and ease ongoing support efforts.

FreedomPay recently adopted the CUFX standards on its Commerce Platform. It worked closely with CUFX member BCU to implement the standards that will now be a part of FreedomPay’s solution offerings through a commitment to make payments smarter and utopian commerce a possibility. BCU has started rolling out the FreedomPay Commerce Platform in sites where it acts as the onsite credit union for corporate customers. The move to FreedomPay encourages corporate employees to use their BCU credit/debit cards and checking accounts to fund their stored value accounts.

BCU Director of Enterprise Architecture Tim Tibbals said, “The CUFX standards were written to be flexible and were applied to the FreedomPay project to 1) allow for Single-Sign-On using the highest industry standards for credential management and authorization, 2) set up accounts on the FreedomPay platform, 3) allow the FreedomPay platform to pull accounts lists and member info in real time from BCU systems in a secure manner, including double encryption of transmitted data, and 4) communicate information back to BCU’s systems to keep information in sync between BCU and FreedomPay.”

“We are excited to have BCU on board as a customer and partner. The combination of our technology and BCU’s go-to-market know-how make us a great team. Going forward, we will be working to bring additional value to leading credit unions adopting the CUFX standard,” FreedomPay CEO Tom Durovsik said.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
