Toronto, Canada – August 21, 2008: Portfolio+ Inc. 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 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. Portfolio+ Inc. worked patiently and professionally with us throughout the system evaluation process, never employing aggressive sales tactics. Visiting their 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.
