Irish Credit Union Chooses Portfolio Plus

Bishopstown is First Irish Credit Union to Choose Portfolio Plus

Toronto, Canada – August 21, 2008: Strategic Information Technology Limited (“SIT”) is pleased to announce that Bishopstown Credit Union (Bishopstown) has chosen Portfolio Plus as their new strategic credit union software platform.

“We see a huge difference between our current system and SIT's Portfolio Plus," said Brian Dennehy, Branch Manager of Bishopstown. "With Portfolio Plus we will no longer be limited in what offerings we can provide to our members. SIT worked patiently and professionally with us throughout the system evaluation process, never employing aggressive sales tactics. Visiting SIT's customers and witnessing the flexibility of the system was especially enlightening."

The credit union movement has been a powerful force in Ireland’s financial history. Three million people in Ireland, out of a population of just over 6 million, are members of a credit union. The total asset base of credit unions in Ireland is over Ђ12.6 billion. In addition, there are over 9,200 active volunteers in the credit union movement, and over 3,500 people employed. The majority of credit unions in Ireland belong to the Irish League of Credit Unions, which represents over 530 credit unions.

“At SIT we’re looking forward to seeing Bishopstown Credit Union converted to Portfolio Plus so we can help them grow beyond their current system limitations,” said G. Robert Leeming, President of SIT. “Working with the team from Bishopstown has been an absolute pleasure and we look forward to investing and expanding in Ireland.”
