Palisades Credit Union Expands Partnership with Synergent® for Zelle®

Synergent® is pleased to announce that Palisades Credit Union has expanded its partnership with Synergent by launching Zelle®. This is Synergent’s first credit union client to go live with this Peer-to-Peer payments solution, which falls under the Jack Henry™ PayCenter faster payments umbrella. Alongside Zelle®, Palisades Credit Union already partners with Synergent for integrated credit card and debit card services.

“We are proud to be Synergent’s first credit union to go live with Zelle®,” stated Anthony Kurdziel, President and CEO of Palisades Credit Union. “We have partnered with Synergent for many years for integrated, valued, and trusted solutions that help us provide exemplary service to our members.

The credit union also uses Synergent to deliver additional service solutions through Jack Henry, including the Symitar® core processing solution and Banno Digital Platform™. Palisades Credit Union also utilizes Synergent check processing, marketing services, and card services.

“Palisades Credit Union has been a partner for years, and we couldn’t be prouder of the trust they place in Synergent,” said Scott Johnsen, Synergent’s Chief Relationship Officer. “Their choice to select us in expanding their partnership is a testament to the foundation we’ve built together. Both Zelle® and the integrated credit and debit solution will help the credit union stand out amongst their competitors and enhance their offerings for their existing membership.”
