INDIANAPOLIS (5/17/12)--Credit Union Centers (CUC), a credit union service organization and shared branching provider in Indianapolis, will begin offering additional delivery channel products through its partnership with CO-OP Shared Branching.
The new products include remote deposit, mobile banking and call center services. Since they will use the existing shared branch data system, CUC member credit unions can add the products without paying for additional interfaces to their core systems.
"By offering these new services, credit unions can now provide multiple touch points to attract younger demographics that will ultimately keep the industry moving forward," said Dan Davis, Credit Union Centers executive vice president and chief financial officer. "These new delivery channel products allow us to become a total solutions provider, complementing our shared branching services that allows credit unions to have more options without paying for multiple interfaces to their core system."
LIVERMORE, Calif. (5/17/12)--CUBUS Solutions has introduced an online banking solution that integrates consumer and commercial banking on a single page.
The CUBUS Online Banking product includes online banking functionality such as balance and transaction detail, bill payment, money transfers and graphs of spending behavior on one interface.
The platform is designed to help credit unions drive more interaction, facilitate greater adoption of e-services and increase touch points with members.
"Instead of the notion of online banking just being a self-service, transactional kiosk, we believe it should proactively build stronger relationships with members," said John-Ashley Paul, CUBUS Solutions CEO.
Instead of increasing the number of disparate systems to provide functionality such as automated clearinghouse transfers with personal online banking, CUBUS created a holistic solution under one roof.
Credit unions can add other CUBUS products that will plug-and-play into the platform. They also can integrate any third-party application into the platform using the CUBUS single sign-on interface.
Current CUBUS customers FAA CU in Oklahoma City, Okla., and Diamond CU of Pottstown, Pa. have started testing the product internally.
