ANAHEIM, Calif., Jan. 3, 2024 – Cotribute, an award-winning embeddable fintech platform helping credit unions grow deposits, loans and memberships, today announced that it has successfully launched its digital account opening platform for Cheyenne, Wyo.-based Blue Federal Credit Union in just 30 days. Recently honored in a list of Investopedia’s 2023 Seven Best Credit Unions, Blue Federal Credit Union (Blue) with more than 115,000 members turned to Cotribute to implement its Online Account Opening.


Cotribute’s digital account opening platform is designed to help credit unions by optimizing for deposit growth and member experience. Entering into this strategic partnership with Cotribute, Blue is leveraging Cotribute’s platform to simplify the account opening experience for members and to grow membership.


Kent Richard, Chief Information Officer at Blue, said, “Our collaboration with Cotribute has truly been lifesaving.
