Customer Testimonials

Below is a sample of testimonials to assure you of the good relationships that we have with our customers. Our customers would be happy to engage directly should you choose to contact them for a reference.

GreyGarde’s unique credit union experience is the main reason that St Francis Credit Union engaged them to work on our IT compliance concerns and to drive our Operational Resilience project. The engagement with GreyGarde has been dynamic, positive and progressive. I would highly recommend a conversation with them.

LOUIS FAY
CEO, St Francis Credit Union

Leading a Credit Union in the information age whilst delivering digital transformation is challenging! ICT has become a critical component of our business model transformation. However, to deliver on our strategy we needed very specific expertise, support and sector focused knowledge. GreyGarde Solutions have provided this and more. They are a key enabler for us whilst also providing the Management Team and Board easily understood analysis of our IT infrastructure, risks and compliance on a monthly basis.

PATRICK LAWLOR
CEO, St Dominic Credit Union

‘Peace of mind’ in a field that is both critical to business and yet beyond the technical competence of most Credit Union staff. That is what GreyGarde brings to Bantry Credit Union. Our relationship with Adrian, Michael and Mark is based on trust. In little over 12 months GreyGarde has added value to Bantry Credit Union in the areas of vendor management, systems oversight, policy development, strategy development, BCP, rollout of new services… the list goes on and on. I have no hesitation in recommending GreyGarde to any Credit Union that is looking for a trusted business partner in the area of IT oversight and advisory services.

GreyGarde Solutions have provided IT Oversight to Mitchelstown Credit Union for a number of years. With GreyGarde I know I can pick up the phone or email a query and it will be dealt with straight away. GreyGarde work off a customised IT Governance and Compliance calendar which gives me the reassurance to know that all IT oversight tasks are in hand and I can focus my attention on growing Mitchelstown Credit Union.

COLIN IRWIN
CEO, Mitchelstown Credit Union

St. Colman’s Credit Union retained the services of GreyGarde in Autumn 2019, given the solid relationship built up with Michael Grey over many years. Retaining GreyGarde has given the Credit Union ever increasing comfort and confidence with respect to IT Governance and requirements, which are proving more exacting as time moves on. This Credit Union rates the performance of GreyGarde as exceptional, their attention to detail and knowledge of all matters IT, to include overall Governance, Connectivity and Central Bank requirements (to name but a few) is simply excellent. GreyGarde’s assistance with a number of difficult CBI RMP items was also simply first class.

GERRY KELLY
Manager, St Colmans Credit Union

We are now confident that we are meeting the standards set in our IT Governance and Compliance policies, without simply relying on what we are being told by our IT providers directly. GreyGarde have filled the gap between our own management team’s IT knowledge and the level of knowledge required to properly oversee our IT functions.

DAREN O’NEILL
CEO, Tallaght West Credit Union

As Head of IT in St. Canice’s Credit Union, I am very familiar with the GreyGarde team of Adrian, Michael and Mark, primarily through their excellent reporting and engagement levels. I have recently expanded the scope of the interactions with GreyGarde to include the examination, preparation and demonstration of St. Canice’s readiness for future regulation, such as the Digital Operational Resilience Act as well as certifications such as Cyber Essentials and ISO207001. I Highly recommend the team at GreyGarde, whether you’re looking for some technical advice, or governance and compliance oversights for your IT infrastructure.

CIARAN BYRNE
Head of IT, St Canice’s Credit Union

The use of GreyGarde Solutions as advisors to Enniscorthy Credit Union has provided me with peace of mind and comfort that our IT regulatory needs and requirements are met and are resilient going forward. They bring new ideas and suggestions that we as a Credit Union would not have thought of, but due to their years of experience in IT of what works and what does not work lead us to make the best possible decisions for our Credit Union.

LIZ CULLEN
CEO, Enniscorthy Credit Union

Killarney Credit Union have known and trusted the team in GreyGarde Solutions for many years. It was an easy decision to work with them when they started providing services directly to Credit Unions. GreyGarde are always at the end of the phone and work with the management of Killarney CU to ensure we remain in control of and get most value from our IT. The IT knowledge that they bring to Killarney CU has proved invaluable.

MARK MURPHY
CEO, Killarney Credit Union

We have been working with GreyGarde for a number of years now and it has really benefited the Credit Union. We had a gap in our IT structure where we needed someone to advise us on our IT approach. GreyGarde now fill this gap and assist us with dealing with outsourced IT vendors, implementing best practice, introducing policies and procedures, as well as any other IT requirements we have. GreyGarde also assisted us in implementing big IT projects such as a system changeover, hardware replacements, implementing Office365, network upgrades and the roll out of a cloud based back up system. Our IT has improved immensely since we have engaged with GreyGarde due to their advice and assistance. I would recommend GreyGarde to any organisation looking for someone to advise them on what’s best for their Credit Union in relation to IT.

PATRICK HEAPHY
Manager, Youghal Credit Union

Prior to engaging with GreyGarde, and as a Credit Union that does not have a dedicated IT Manager/Resource in-house, there was a lack of understanding of where the Credit Union was positioned in terms of IT Governance. GreyGarde through their expert knowledge of Credit Union operations and systems have provided a structured overview, along with a long term plan to work towards achieving a higher standard for IT Governance. GreyGarde also helped LDCU identify and understand IT risk and to ensure that the strategic planning process put in place mitigants to address these risks.

CAROLINE LONG
CEO, Limerick & District Credit Union

With GreyGarde Solutions, I can be safe in the knowledge that we are keeping our IT up to industry standards, through monthly reporting etc. GreyGarde keep the Credit Union informed on all IT and recommendations to improve/enhance current infrastructure. One of the main benefits is that we can ask an IT related question of them and not be led by our IT suppliers in times when we are uncertain of what is being said to us.
