accelerating digital transformation
Combine great relationships with long standing customers and communities with personalised digital experiences.
Luna Connect was founded in 2017 by former HP Enterprise software executive Brian D’Arcy in Ireland. Brian saw an opportunity to build a product for small and medium-sized financial institutions that would accelerate digital transformation, and lending is an area where digital can quickly reduce cost and risk.
Luna Connect’s digital lending platform provides local financial institutions an opportunity to combine great customer and member relationships with personalised online experiences. With no capital investment, credit unions, community banks, and building societies will be able to deliver digital lending experiences that mimic your friendly branch experience in just weeks.
In addition to our world class digital platform, we have extensive experience in every aspect of creating digital lending capabilities including customer journeys, user experience, internal processes, onboarding, AI-driven analytics, and project implementation. Indeed, digital transformation journeys can be challenging, but we make it as easy as possible.
Early Luna clients include SME Finance & Leasing, Carlow Credit Union, and Life Credit Union. Luna recently raised €800,000/$950,000 to double the team, expand into the UK, and to prepare for the American market.
Founder Brian D’Arcy recognised the opportunity to help local financial institutions digitally transform their businesses, and that mission led him to start Luna Connect in 2017. He brings his experience and knowledge working as a senior leader in one of the world’s largest IT companies to small and medium sized financial providers who would not otherwise get access to the highest level of digital transformation.
During his 15-years with HP Enterprise, Brian led the digital transformation engineering team for management and analytics, responsible for the technical design and implementation of the digital transformation of the enterprise services data and analytics platform.
Brian earned his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from The Institute of Technology, Sligo and Master of Science (MSc) in Information Systems from The Open University. His Master’s timely dissertation was, “An analysis of cloud computing deployment and service model challenges”, published in 2012.
