JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nymbus, a premier provider of cloud-based financial technology solutions, is proud to announce that Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) has partnered with Nymbus to deliver Nymbus SMB, a feature-rich, compliant, “bank in a box” solution designed to enable Credit Unions to serve the rapidly growing Small and Medium Business (SMB) market.
Recognizing the dominance of three megabanks that hold 47% of the market and the significantly smaller market share of community banks and credit unions at just 18%, Nymbus has identified a pressing need for its Nymbus SMB initiative to help level the playing field and amplify the competitiveness of credit unions. The collaboration between MSUFCU and Nymbus will pioneer a next-generation approach, enabling credit unions and regional banks to gain an edge in the intensifying SMB banking market. Through this partnership, Nymbus and MSUFCU are stepping up to fill the void left by traditional banking tech providers, which have struggled to evolve and adequately equip credit unions to capitalize on emerging market opportunities such as the rapidly expanding SMB sector.
In the wake of its recent $70 million Series D funding round—where MSUFCU also participated as an investor—Nymbus is ramping up its support for credit unions, working diligently to bridge the digital divide. Through its Nymbus SMB solution, Nymbus equips credit unions with essential digital tools to better serve SMBs, consequently expanding their market presence and establishing them as key strategic partners for SMB growth. This solution includes cost-effective services like invoicing, cash management tools, cash flow analytics and a modern digital banking platform operating through a standalone technical infrastructure.
Jeffery Kendall, CEO of Nymbus, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration. "This partnership represents a pivotal opportunity for credit unions as we equip them with the modern tools and services they need to effectively meet the needs of the growing SMB market," Kendall said. "Our Nymbus SMB solution is a game changer that delivers value and fills the gap left by legacy credit union technology providers."
April Clobes, President and CEO of MSUFCU, also shared her insights. "Aligning with Nymbus on this vital project is a strategic move for MSUFCU, as it allows us to enhance our product offerings and deliver top-tier services to small business owners. Through this collaboration, we’re showing our dedication to the businesses that are the connectors of our communities,” remarked Clobes.
The partnership with MSUFCU underscores Nymbus’ position as a frontrunner in the fintech arena, understanding that credit unions can serve small and medium businesses at a lower cost than the current market offerings and with a level of service that keeps those costs down.
Nymbus continues redefining the future of financial services, fostering growth and creating unparalleled value for credit unions and the small business community.
Nymbus has disrupted the financial services market as an alternative to legacy business models. With Nymbus, any size financial institution can quickly launch a full-service digital bank or migrate to our award-winning core. Whichever growth strategy is right for you, Nymbus buys back decades of lost time to engage and support the entire digital customer journey.
