A great first week

December 1, 2009

I wanted to post a quick thank-you for the fantastic first-week reaction to our new site for banks and credit unions, GetSpringboard.com. I somehow expected that the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. would make the first week slow and easy. I was wrong!

George Pasley perfectly nailed why we’re excited about GetSpringboard.com:

Wesabe is doing something that is unheard of in the financial industry. They are offering an online, consumer facing banking product that a FI can have up and running in HOURS. Think about that for a moment. Your FI’s CIO could go the Springboard website, select the plan she wants, break out the corporate credit card, and have an online PFM product running for their customers in a day or two at most.

I don’t know of another banking tech vendor that offers implementation like this. No salesperson to haggle over features and pricing. No project manager to coordinate all the departments needed to make it happen. Just five minutes to fill out the registration form.

Yup. That’s exactly what we’re doing. And the reaction has been amazing. Our guess that everyone likes convenience and low cost — even bankers — turns out to be spot on. 🙂 Thanks for the great write-up, George.

As a reminder, we have a special offer for the rest of 2009: sign up for any plan and you get the price of the next lowest-priced plan for the life of your subscription. You can save up to $10,000 a year for as long as you use Wesabe Springboard, but only if you sign up before December 31st, 2009. Don’t miss it.

We’re really happy with how many people have reacted — and acted — so enthusiastically to this new launch. Thank you. We’re working hard to make the site even better for you, your members, and all users of Wesabe services.
