LIVONIA, Mich. (5/18/11)--League Infosight is offering an iPhone app that helps consumers locate credit union branches and learn about the benefits of membership. The new app, developed by CU Solutions Group, is free to download and includes these features:
* Find a Credit Union--Members and potential members can search using their location or a ZIP code to get branch listings, detailed information and maps on FindaCreditUnion.com. * The Credit Union Difference--This feature highlights what makes credit unions unique and explains what they are and how to join. * Benefits of Membership--This area describes the financial services, personal attention, better rates and lower fees offered by credit unions. * Protecting Your Money--This section describes how credit unions protect their members’ money by being federally insured, observing conservative lending and investment practices, and providing financial guidance.
With more smartphone users accessing information through mobile applications instead of their computers, League InfoSight said it developed the iPhone application to help consumers find the nearest credit union while they were “on the go,” and learn about the benefits of membership at the same. League InfoSight was formed in 2003 and is managed by CU Solutions Group. It is owned by the California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Ohio credit union leagues and the League of Southeastern Credit Unions. Its mission is to help leagues provide value in areas of highest priority to member credit unions, and it works in close partnership with the Credit Union National Association, a league InfoSight board member, and more than 30 states.
