FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (9/22/08)--Southwest Corporate plans to unveil Member Capture, its consumer-oriented remote deposit product on Oct. 28--the opening day of the corporate’s 31st annual Economic Forum in Dallas. Credit unions can sign up to begin implementing the solution. Product pricing will be available (LoneStar Leaguer Sept. 18). Member Capture allows credit union members to deposit checks from their homes with a computer, Internet connection and flatbed scanner. The program can be accessed through the credit union’s home banking program. “Member Capture is a membership growth and retention tool,” said Brad Ganey, Southwest Corporate vice president of item processing services. “We mapped it to the lowest-tech user with a slow Internet connection and incorporated an online tutorial to guide users through the three-step deposit process.”
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (9/22/08)--CO-OP Financial Services announced that its ATMContent Manager will be compatible with all new and older Diebold and NCR ATMs. That means credit unions with older ATMs can configure their machines’ screens with customized text. The upgrade is debuting this month. “Many ATMs on the marketplace are not yet Windows-based and are running older OS/2 code,” said Kathy Herziger, CO-OP vice president of product development. “Changing screens on any new or legacy ATM can be a lengthy, costly process, but ATMContent Manager allows credit unions to control and create their own marketing campaigns.” ATMContent Manager is a web-based tool for credit unions seeking to remotely create, manage and deliver ATM screen messages on demand. Credit unions using the manager include Mountain America CU, West Jordan, Utah. The credit union has used ATMContent Manager on its 80 ATMs since January 2007. CO-OP is a credit union service organization that provides more than 25,000 surcharge-free ATMs to credit union members.
