Leaders Credit Union goes live with Sensibill for digital receipt management


Sensibill’s digital receipt management solution supports Leaders Credit Union’s mission to help members strengthen financial health.

The entire team here at Sensibill is excited to announce that the Jackson, Tenn.-based Leaders Credit Union has launched our digital receipt management solution to help its members better budget and track expenses, supporting the ultimate goal of achieving financial wellness.

The $520 million-asset credit union leads with a digital-first strategy, partnering with fintech providers like Sensibill to offer value and convenience to its members at no additional cost. Leaders CU prioritizes equipping their consumers and business members with the necessary tools to make smarter financial decisions, from within the institution’s NCR-powered mobile banking app.

Leaders Credit Union recognized that Sensibill’s technology could strategically support this strategy, prompting the partnership. Because of the solution’s wide range of use cases, the credit union plans to leverage the technology to engage with members and non-members alike, with both business and retail services in mind.

As Leigh Anne Bentley, Chief Marketing Officer at Leaders CU, says:

“Providing members with digital resources that deliver value and strengthen their financial health has always been our goal, and that mission is especially important today. Not only does Sensibill provide easy-to-use tools to help members with budgeting, warranties and returns, and taxes, but our members also gain greater visibility into their finances, spending habits, and behaviors, empowering them to make better financial decisions. This solution is a strong addition to our financial wellness program and will benefit members throughout the community.”

The Sensibill solution helps members better prepare for tax season by eliminating the need to use multiple products or tedious manual processes to separate business and personal receipts. Instead, receipts are digitized and made easily exportable and searchable, saving time and reducing stress. In addition to providing convenience to members, Sensibill’s technology enables the credit union to strengthen member relationships, drive engagement, and help members with additional financial resources.

In addition to providing convenience to members, Sensibill’s technology enables the credit union to strengthen member relationships, drive engagement, and recommend relevant products and services based on the SKU-level data derived from digital receipts.

Our Co-founder and CEO, Corey Gross reiterated what Sensibill can help Leaders CU achieve:

“The pandemic has proven that members aren’t planning for their financial futures in years or months, but rather in terms of weeks or even days. By leveraging our technology, Leaders members can eliminate the inefficiencies and headaches of organizing and analyzing paper receipts. At the same time, members can easily and proactively manage their expenses and form healthier financial habits. We are proud to partner with institutions like Leaders that recognize the importance of providing modern, digital tools to strengthen engagement while simultaneously helping members achieve financial wellness.”

Sensibill announces the new Senisbill Platform to help financial institutions better serve their customers

As a financial institution, serving your customers with the best digital tools, products, and services is key to helping your customers thrive financially. But the question on many institutions’ minds has always been: how?

With Spend Manager, Sensibill makes tracking everyday expenses quicker and easier, helping end-users build healthier financial habits. Spend Insights takes the SKU-level data collected from Spend Manager and makes it actionable (and powerful). Built on advanced AI and machine learning-driven technology, our new solutions help financial institutions better understand their customers and personalize products and services to them that best fit their unique financial needs.

Corey Gross, Co-founder and CEO here at Sensibill, relates why solutions like the Sensibill Platform are essential to the success of financial institutions: 

“Sensibill is empowering institutions of all sizes to harness SKU-level data to offer personalized experiences and recommendations that help make customers’ hard-earned money go further. The time to act is now—by better contextualizing the transaction-level data they already have with SKU-level insights, institutions can help their customers make smarter financial decisions. Those that do will retain loyalty and expand market share while making financial wellness more attainable for all.”

The entire team here at Sensibill couldn’t be more excited and proud to announce the Sensibill Platform, with solutions that will revolutionize the way financial institutions not only understand but nurture truly financially resilient customers.

Sensibill welcomes Tom Shen as chair of the board

TORONTO, Feb. 03, 2020 — Sensibill announced today that digital banking veteran Tom Shen has been appointed chair of the board. Shen is joined on the board by Corey Gross, co-founder and CEO of Sensibill, David Unsworth, general partner at Information Venture Partners, and Benji Sucher, general partner at Radical Ventures.

Shen’s addition to the board is part of a series of executive appointments designed to help the company fulfill its mission of powering financial institutions with innovative solutions that drive customer value and engagement, while expanding the data streams financial institutions need to forge deeper relationships. Sensibill secured $31.5 million USD in Series B funding in 2019 to further support this initiative. The round was led by Radical Ventures, with participation from the National Bank of Canada and others. Radical Ventures is focused on applying data and AI on a global scale; their involvement adds a deeper layer of data expertise that is complemented by Shen’s digital banking experience.

Shen is a proven expert at scaling digital banking services for financial institutions. He was the founder and CEO of digital banking solutions provider Malauzai, which he sold to Finastra in 2018. Finastra attributed the company’s market leadership and open approach as part of its purchasing decision. In 2005, Shen joined the executive team at Digital Insight, an internet banking and payments provider ultimately acquired by NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR). The first company he founded was Software Dynamics, Incorporated (SDI), a provider of teller and platform automation software that grew to work with more than 1,200 financial institutions before it was sold to S1 Corporation in 2001. The business was later acquired by ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ: ACIW).

“Sensibill is at the precipice of a major breakthrough,” commented Shen. “The company has joined forces with some of the world’s leading financial institutions, and they are highly proficient in a market that is ripe for change. Customers have become accustomed to personal and on-demand service from their experiences with big tech; Sensibill’s use of purchase data and AI expertise makes these user experiences readily available to financial institutions.”

Gross added, “There are only a handful of digital banking innovators of the caliber of Tom Shen. His success building and delivering game-changing digital solutions for financial institutions has been proven time and again. We’re excited to have him join Sensibill as we endeavor to make banking more personal.”

Sensibill has raised a total of $46.5 million USD and has partnered with the largest financial institutions and digital banking providers in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada.

And this is just the first piece in the puzzle as we set about developing a major new digital ecosystem of services to help SMEs.”
