MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Digital Federal Credit Union (DCU), the largest New England based credit union headquartered in Marlborough, Massachusetts, has selected Yippy, Inc. (OTCMKTS: YIPI) (“Yippy”), a technology company that specializes in enterprise search and data unification, to replace Google as its primary vendor for enterprise search and discovery.
Google previously announced that it was sun-setting the Google Search Appliance, the former leading product in the search appliance market, and would be transitioning to a 100% cloud-based solution. For financial institutions such as DCU, a cloud-based solution is not an option due to data security and compliance issues.
“DCU is always looking for new technologies to enhance and facilitate their employees’ experience, which ultimately benefits our 680,000 plus members nationwide,” stated Jane Fontaine, DCU’s Vice President of Human Resources and Training. Ms. Fontaine continued, “The Yippy Search Appliance was chosen for its superior security, search and data unification capabilities. Yippy was the only vendor to pass our security requirements and we were up and transitioned away from Google within a matter of days. Yippy’s team exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend their services to other credit unions and financial institutions.”
“We are honored to be selected by DCU, one of the largest and most innovative credit unions in the world,” stated Richard Granville, Chief Executive Officer, Yippy. He continued, “Winning DCU’s trust and business among so many major players in the space is exciting and shows Yippy’s staying power. Both DCU’s Human Resources and Information Systems departments are top notch, and emphasize protecting DCU’s assets and its members, as well as empowering their employees with the information needed to excel at servicing DCU’s members nationwide. I’m very proud Yippy was up to the challenge.”
