Doxim Inc., the leading provider of web-based e-statement and document imaging solutions for Canadian Credit Unions and their Service Providers, announces support of the planned E-Document capabilities being offered by Central 1 to its Credit Union customers via the MemberDirect™ online banking portal.
E-Documents allows financial institutions to expose documents such as tax documents (including T5's, T4's), cheques, renewal documents (including term and loan renewals), and marketing material to their members via MemberDirect™ online banking.
The E-Documents initiative represents another joint development initiative between Doxim and Central 1 to enhance document access via MemberDirect™ for Credit Union members.
Working in tandem with mutual clients, Doxim and Central 1are enhancing their API’s, allowing any type of document or file within the Doxim repository to be exposed to members through the MemberDirect™ banking portal.
By providing broad-based online document access via MemberDirect™, Doxim and Central 1 will help hundreds of their shared Credit Union clients across Canada usher in a new era of e-only accounts and relationships for their members. By transitioning to the new E-Documents offering, these Credit Unions will significantly enhance the web-based offerings that they can provide to their membership.
The Doxim E-Document service will enter field testing in Q4, 2010, with general availability scheduled for Q1, 2011.
