CUSN blocks third-party kiosks
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (4/21/08)--Credit Union Service Network (CUSN) has blocked third-party kiosk access for CUSN network participants, effective April 16. That means all shared-branching transactions at third-party ATM kiosks will be blocked from CUSN credit union members. New functionality will allow state networks and credit unions to "opt out" of participation with third-party, non-credit-union-owned shared-branching kiosks. CO-OP Shared Branching, CUSN's national shared-branching provider and partner, developed the new functionality. A third-party kiosk is one that is not owned or controlled by a credit union. The block will not affect kiosks that are owned and operated by credit unions. Although kiosks may be a viable tool for credit unions in the future, CUSN said in a press release it believed the current VCOM units were rushed to the market without proper dialogue between the national shared-branching networks and the creation of formal network rules. CUSN said it hoped a dialogue among national networks would occur to address its concerns. If such a dialogue occurs and its concerns are resolved, CUSN will allow its credit union partners to individually "opt in" again to allow members to use third-party kiosks.
