"CO-OP has offered a multi-platform mobile banking solution for more than a year, but with CO-OP Mobile Text, it is now easier than ever for credit unions to start and manage a mobile banking program," said Stan Hollen, president/CEO, CO-OP Financial Services. "CO-OP Mobile Text allows credit unions of any size attract groups such as the young and those living in rural areas, who prefer mobile devices as their access points for everything from music to news."
Credit unions currently using the CO-OP Next Generation Network (NGN) switch for shared branching, check imaging and other services can implement CO-OP Mobile Text immediately. They simply need to opt-in to this NGN service to be activated.
With CO-OP Mobile Text, a credit union member can send a text message for an account inquiry and receive information back promptly. The service enables members to verify balances, view transaction history and transfer funds within their accounts. CO-OP Financial Services provides the short code to minimize credit union expense.
CO-OP Mobile Multi-Mode Platform is the company's full-service mobile banking solution, supporting text banking, mobile browser, downloadable applications and remote mobile deposit for iPhones.
CO-OP Mobile Text is available now. For more information, please contact a CO-OP Shared Branching Network Service Representative at 866-812-2872, option 2, or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
