$2.4 Billion Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union Selects Alkami ORB Digital Banking Platform


Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union (SLFCU), New Mexico’s largest credit union with $2.4 billion in assets, has selected Alkami Technology’s ORB platform to transform its digital banking offering for its 84,000 members.

Alkami’s ORB will provide SLFCU’s members with a convenient way to manage their finances. Users will have access to a modern, consistent digital banking platform that is user-friendly across all devices and functions including retail, mobile, bill pay, personal finance management (PFM), Person-to-Person payments, marketing and more. After SLFCU’s conversion to the Corelation Keystone core operating system in late 2018, the credit union’s business members will also be able to take advantage of the Alkami online banking system. Additionally, the platform allows SLFCU to build its own apps and product extensions as well as integrate new features and functions for all lines of business, creating a highly customizable user experience.

“Alkami Technology was selected for a number of reasons, including the ability to incorporate both retail and business accounts on a single platform, providing a more robust experience for business members,” said Srinivasa Sastri Siravuri, SLFCU’s chief information officer. “In addition, the Alkami platform offers improved infrastructure and monitoring, as well as the opportunity for SLFCU to introduce future technological improvements in the online and mobile channel faster and more seamlessly.”

ORB’s highly scalable architecture easily supports broad and fast-growing user bases. It also houses an integrated content management system that delivers dynamic, real-time, one-to-one product marketing and educational content with visibility into cross selling opportunities. ORB allows SLFCU to successfully promote tailored products and services to both its retail and business members in a way that is relevant and timely.

Robert Chavez, president and CEO of SLFCU, added, “We’re looking forward to being able to offer our members a more intuitive and engaging user experience, with relevant content delivery, real-time alerts, and enhanced personal financial management tools. The single platform across all devices will mean a more integrated look and feel, as well as improved functionality for our members.”

“The importance of a consistent experience across retail and business digital banking platforms is increasing as the entrepreneurial spirit of younger generations grows,” said Stephen Bohanon, founder, chief strategy and sales officer of Alkami Technology. “Millennial business owners expect a user-friendly digital banking experience that is just as advanced and uniquely tailored to them as their retail experience. To win the business of these consumers, innovative institutions like SLFCU are updating their digital banking platforms, ensuring that a homogeneous experience is available for all types of accounts. SLFCU is making it a priority to stay innovative, and we’re excited to partner with them to achieve their goals.”
