Prairie credit unions to offer a proven and competitive Internet banking service to their members.”

Central’s commitment to continually enhance MemberDirect Internet banking to ensure it is

partnership providing to its credit union clients.

“In addition to being a best-of-breed solution, eroSERVE Internet Banking, powered by
MemberDirect Services, will enable credit unions to meet members’ day-to-day banking needs,
such as paying bills, transferring funds, and viewing account information all in a secure and

growing numbers. “Celero and Central are pleased to offer a solution that will allow Prairie credit
unions to develop closer links with members by providing access to their credit union 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, anywhere in the world.”
