Synergent offers new shared branching kiosks
PORTLAND, Maine. (3/7/11)--Synergent has launched shared branch kiosks in lobbies and other locations throughout Maine.

The kiosks go beyond the services offered by ATMs, allowing members to make loan payments, get loan advances, make money transfers or withdrawals, and make cash or check deposits without slips or envelopes. A subsidiary of the Maine Credit Union League, Synergent provides credit unions with technology services, card services and check processing and support services. It also has a direct marketing services division. University CU, a $189 million-asset institution in Orono, Maine, recently introduced the kiosks to its membership. For those members apprehensive about the new technology, the credit union employed “technology liaisons” to assist with the registration process and explain the kiosks’ functionality. The $185 million asset Five County CU, Bath, Maine, has also implemented the kiosks. “We felt it was important to make this investment to ensure that our members, and members of credit unions who utilize shared branching, have access to their accounts beyond the extended hours we already offer,” said Mike Foley, vice president of Five County CU.
