We would like to announce that we are commencing product development of the Forge Small Business and Commercial Banking products with the objective to have four clients launched on the MVP or first product release by the end of 2019.
As with our Forge Digital Banking mobile app, public website and online banking, the small business and commercial banking products will be developed using Backbase technology.
Building on our successful approach to date, the Forge Tribe will once again work with a small group of clients before making the products more widely available later next year.
To accelerate availability of commercial banking, Servus Credit Union has come forward and committed to providing resources and funding, and to champion this effort with Central 1. The collaboration between Servus and Central 1 is another example of how we can partner together to manage the development risk and in parallel, fast-track the process to more quickly have exciting new Forge products available for all of our clients to leverage in their business.
Consistent with our Agile approach, once Central 1 and our champions have shaped the initial features roadmap, it will be shared with our other clients to help inform the development process.
We appreciate the strong interest in Forge and commit to sharing our continued progress and results along the way. If you have any questions about your organization’s implementation of Forge, please contact your Relationship Manager.
We look forward to connecting with you again soon,
