James was brought on in a senior API developer role to help First West implement a new RESTful JSON API for Commercial Loan origination. Given the use of new API tools as they were being developed, and aggressive timelines, it was vital to have a partner who could quickly grasp our environment and processes. James not only contributed immediately at a senior level, he also worked directly with our overseas vendor and assisted us in onboarding internal team members. James and Centerprise played a key part in our ability to successfully deliver new technology that directly benefits our members and supports our API strategy. I would definitely recommend James and Centerprise as trusted partners in any future strategic integration project.

Affinity partnered with Centerprise to receive Wealthview Banking Developers Kit (WBDK) training in order to gain an understanding of banking system development … The level one training gave us good understanding of the fundamentals of DK development. The assignments covered real world scenarios which gave our developers practical experience … The level two training taught us advanced concepts including leading edge tools and techniques. We completed a comprehensive exam that challenged our developers on the entire body of knowledge … Throughout the training Mike brought a deep body of knowledge and was a good mentor for the group as we worked through our assignments. The value we received from this training was well worth the investment.

Mike was brought on as Product Manager for the CAG Alliance of Canadian Credit Unions in 2017. We had a need to have that single point of contact for our vendor who was trying to update our shared core banking system software and Mike has filled that role admirably. Through this time of fintech disruption and a general revolutionizing of our industry Mike has ensured that the shared priorities for that product are well defined, clear and achievable. For myself, having Mike work with our vendor has provided us with a level of certainty in cost, time and quality with the product that we did not have previously.

Mike has a blend of skills that are very hard to come by. He is technical, able to project manage and most importantly able to effectively liaise with the users and business owners. Bridging the gap between people and technology is not easy and Mike does it extremely well! I would have no hesitation recommending him or employing him in the future.
