About Us

Engineering a better way forward for credit unions and fintechs.

You don’t need big bank money to afford big bank technologies. Not with Constellation.

Our open development platform gives credit unions access to the latest innovations from fintechs, and fintechs access to credit union decision-makers.

With Constellation, there’s no need for workarounds to legacy technologies that can hold credit unions back. The Constellation digital platform is the world’s first and only cloud-based suite of digital financial services dedicated solely to credit unions.

Little wonder that we raised the most capital in credit union/CUSO history: $32.5 million, a sum that has allowed us to disrupt former barriers and give credit unions the power to not only survive but thrive. To not only compete, but win.

A new way forward for today, and well into the future. That’s the promise made, and kept with Constellation.

How we’re different.

Let’s say you’re a credit union and want to offer a new banking product or service. Or maybe you want to introduce new features. With Constellation, fintechs create the content right inside our platform. We have no obstacles, no restrictions, so there is no limit to integration.

That means instead of service providers charging credit unions and fintechs what they want for the integration every time its needed, the integration is automatic. Now you can actually have a true digital strategy and focus on executing it the way you want. And you’ll be 100% supported through the entire process by our team.

Let’s say you’re a fintech. Access to Constellation and all of its tools are free. There are no barriers to participation. It’s an open platform for development and participation. It’s the perfect universe for you and your business to thrive in.

To put it simply, we  thought the industry needed something different. Somewhere else for credit unions to turn instead of always having to go to the service provider and beg for integration.

Some of the people in the bios have their name listed where their title should be. You’re probably waiting for titles.
