Several vendors at GAC get media coverage
WASHINGTON (2/24/10)—While most of the media attention garnered by credit unions this week is related to new credit card rules and member business lending, several vendors exhibiting at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington this week were featured in numerous articles. A new alliance between CUNA Strategic Services (CSS) and Fynanz Inc., a private student loan provider, was announced Monday. It also was reported Monday’s editions of St. Louis Business Journal and IT News Online. Panini, which has partnered with CSS to provide check scanners, announced it will launch an initiative aimed at rolling out Check 21 to credit unions during the GAC. That news was reported by Cox News Service Monday, as well as Dayton Daily News and Finextra. It also made news in the Spanish language Document Management. A Personal Teller Machine—a so-called super ATM—being promoted at the GAC by Sandy, Utah-based uGenius Technology was the topic of a number of articles. The machines let a motorist talk to a teller at a remote location 24/7. The company has sold almost 50 of the machines to credit unions and banks in Michigan, North Carolina, New York and Pennsylvania, said the reports. So far the company and its demonstration at the GAC have been reported in: Monday’s issue of BostonHerald.com, Yahoo! Finance Canada , Daily Finance Blog, LocalNews8.com, and MyFox Utah, and Tuesday’s issue of Deseret Morning News (Feb. 23).
