Portfolio+ Incorporated (Portfolio+ Inc.) is pleased to announce that Duo Bank of Canada has already issued millions of dollars using Portfolio+ term deposit software after launching in early September. Duo Bank of Canada is Portfolio+ Inc.’s newest customer leveraging Portfolio+’s industry-proven term deposit technology to integrate with one of the country’s largest financial networks in order to sell and administer CDIC-backed GICs in Canada.
“When we began our research into this initiative, Portfolio+’s solution was highly recommended within the industry,” said Horace Saunders, COO, Duo Bank of Canada. “We saw an opportunity to leverage the experience of the people at Portfolio+ Inc. to provide guidance around everything from our expectations to implementation considerations. We knew we had made the right decision to partner with Portfolio+ Inc. after we began working with their team.”
Duo Bank of Canada chose the Portfolio+ term deposit solution for its efficiencies. The technology integrates with the industry’s leading application processing and administration network to provide a complete solution that automates every step of the term deposit life cycle.
“We are very pleased with the collaboration on this project,” said Pat Casullo, Strategic Accounts Manager with Portfolio+ Inc., who was heavily involved with this project and provided support until Duo Bank officially went live. “Duo Bank had an idea and knew what it wanted to do, and we had the software and skills to help them make their idea a reality.”
