Incent today announced that it has joined the Symitar®Vendor Integration Program (VIP). Participation in the program will provide Incent with access to Symitar’s technical resources to enable Incent Family Financial Education to integrate with Symitar Episys. The Vendor Integration Program is designed to help ensure that Symitar’s customers can easily deploy third-party products.
Incent Family Financial Education integrates with Symitar Episysvia SymXchange™, a services-based programming interface that enables third-party vendors and credit unions to access the platform’s core data and business rules. The integrity of data is maintained throughout any data exchange, because access to business rules and data is managed through a service layer which governs these interactions.
Incent allows kids and teens the ability to access online and mobile banking services in simple and seamless ways. Incent is focused on the way families interact and provides kids and teens with the information that is important to them. Incent gives the credit union the ability to provide debit cards to kids and teens while eliminating associated risks. It provides parents the ability to pay their children for completing work in an innovative way, and it gives kids and teens the ability to request loans and small amounts of money from their parents. Simple workflows make the solution easy to utilize for both parents and children. Incent uses gamification to keep youth engaged, using the product, and learning critical financial education skills. SymXchange makes the integration and rollout process quick and seamless for Symitar clients.
“Numerica Credit Union is committed to fostering well-being in the lives of our members,” said KayCee Murray, Senior Vice President Information Technology of Numerica Credit Union. “One way that we can do that is by providing innovative ways to help them manage their finances. The Incent Family Financial Education app allows us to bring that enhanced experience to our youth members and provide parents with a tool to teach their children financial responsibility. Incent’s financial lessons are consistent with the main lessons we teach in our own financial education program: to save often, spend wisely and to give back to your community.”
Symitar’s VIP takes the customer out of the middle, providing vendors with direct access to Symitar’s technical resources and test systems. VIP inclusion is not an endorsement of the vendor’s product.
