CO-OPs GPS downloads give members directions to ATMs
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (8/7/08)--Credit union member cardholders who belong to the CO-OP Network can now employ their global position systems (GPS) devices to find the nearest surcharge-free ATM. More than 1,000 cardholder members have used the service, which can download the CO-OP Network database of 25,000 surcharge free ATMs. Members receive free turn-by-turn directions to the ATMs. Members also can text their address, intersection and zip code to 692667 (MYCOOP) from any mobile phone to find an ATM. The service replies to messages with ATM locations within one minute. So far, more than 25,000 text messages have been sent and received by 13,000 cardholders use the service. “When every dollar, every gallon of gas counts, our cardholders will save precious time and money by being able to download the location of the nearest ATM into their GPS navigation messaging device,” said Stan Hollen, president/CEO, CO-OP Financial Services. CO-OP Financial Services is a credit union service organization that provides ATM network access, ATM processing, debit and card services, and shared branching to credit unions and member cardholders.
