CO-OP Digital Payments Ecosystem Enables Credit Unions to Engage with Members Where They Are
10/4/2021 – RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California – OnPath Federal Credit Union (www.BeOnPath.org) is expanding its partnership with CO-OP Financial Services (www.coop.org) by joining CO-OP ATM network, further enabling the credit union to meet its members wherever and however they want to engage.
“We have been a participating credit union in the CO-OP Shared Branch network, with its 5,700 branches, so we are aware of the benefits offered, allowing us to extend our member services and account access nationwide,” said Jared Freeman, President/CEO of OnPath FCU. “We are excited to now offer our members the same convenience by joining CO-OP ATM, with 30,000 machines across the country.
“With CO-OP ATM, our members can access their accounts regardless of where they live or travel, for day-to-day convenience or if they are away from home. The fact that members can use the network ATMs surcharge-free is a huge benefit and enables us to compete with any national bank,” said Freeman.
CO-OP Shared Branch and CO-OP ATM are services of the company’s Engage solutions line, which also includes the CO-OP Contact Center, ATM Terminal Driving, rewards programs, card controls and alerts, and digital banking. Shared branching enables members of credit unions to conduct their business at other participating institutions as if they were visiting their own home branch. CO-OP ATM is the nation’s largest credit union-owned network. In addition to offering 30,000 fee-free ATMs nationwide, it includes 7,500 deposit-taking machines, with nearly 2,000 credit unions participating in the network.
OnPath FCU, based in Harahan, Louisiana (New Orleans metro area), is a 60-year-old institution with more than 64,000 members and more than $300 million in assets.
“We are delighted to add OnPath to the growing number of CO-OP ATM-participating credit unions in the southeast,” said Matt Kardell, Chief Revenue Officer for CO-OP. “It’s clear OnPath is dedicated to engaging with their members and being there for them wherever and whenever they need to access accounts. CO-OP offers a complete digital payments ecosystem that makes that possible for credit unions of any size. In this way, we can help credit unions be in a stronger position to win primary financial relationships and fulfill their mission of helping members achieve financial wellness.”
