Top 10 credit union will adopt a new small business banking platform to create a streamlined digital process for business members for digital account opening, virtual cards, payments and reporting

Ogden, Utah July 9, 2024 – America First Credit Union has selected Loquat Inc. to help enhance the onboarding experience for small business members. The partnership will equip small business owners with time-saving mobile solutions to make it easier, faster and more secure to run their business and have full control over their finances.

“We’ve seen significant small business account growth across our membership — and these members want to get up-and-running quickly,” said Karey Thomas SVP of branch delivery at America First Credit Union. “The partnership with Loquat will provide our business members a modern experience tailored to meet the demands of the commercial marketplace.”

In addition to new business account opening, Loquat provides virtual debit and credit cards and enables payment and lending products to be established within minutes using a proprietary process that  reduces the time  that is historically  required to onboard new business members.
