A Glimpse Into Central1 Forge Development

I don't believe I've shared this here but Envision Financial is one of the institutions currently using the new Central1 Forge platform for both Mobile and Online (alongside the old MemberDirect). They have a website up at https://www.envisionfinancial.ca/new-di ... experience which gives a glimpse into what is being developed and what has been done. This is likely a good place to watch to see what other institutions may gain when they switch to Forge as well. Some interesting things mentioned right now:

Scheduled Interac e-Transfers
Collabria integration
Banking: Alterna Bank (2%), Motive Financial (3%)
Investing: National Bank Direct Brokerage
Spending: Scotia Amex Gold (6 pts/Sobeys, 5 pts/dining, 1 pts/rest), Scene Visa (1 pts)
Mobile: Eastlink 10GB Rollover ($45/mth)

I'm an Envision member and I provided highly negative feedback on their new interface. If it eventually enables some new features, great - but the organization and navigation is simply not up to par.

Hamilton
Isn't First Ontario also using the new Forge platform? They're a pretty big credit union in the Hamilton area.

The website seems to be Forge, but I don't think the online banking is Forge yet for First Ontario. Still seems to be Member Direct.
