This will enable Leek United to provide its customers with an omnichannel experience with straight-through processing and the opportunity for consumers to access their savings products 24/7,” said Richard Broadbent, UK Managing Director at Sopra Banking Software.
According to Sopra, it will provide Leek United with its newly launched fully integrated digital savings portal to support new to Building Society customer applications and comprehensive servicing capabilities to provide consumers with the excellent customer experience they receive through the other channels that Leek United operate.

We carried out extensive research on what Leek United’s customers are looking for in digital and, following a full market review, selected Sopra Banking Software.
