DENVER (5/29/08)--Pendum is launching a self-service kiosk designed specifically for credit unions through the CO-OP Shared Branching and Financial Service Centers Cooperative Inc. (FSCC). The NCR 3800 Shared Branch kiosk allows credit unions to serve members and guest shared-branching members. The machine is powered by a web-based engine from Ensenta. Credit unions can install kiosks in locations that are most convenient to members. The kiosk aims to reduce processing costs by 50%, reduce float time and eliminate up-front expenses in purchasing an image consolidation solution. “This system lets us view shared-branching transactions made by our members and non-members at all Ensenta and 7-Eleven Vcom units,” said Kelly Valencia, EFT Services manager of First Tech CU, Portland, Ore. Pendum provides cash automation solutions to financial institutions in 42 states.
