Credit Union ONE and Telcom Credit Union Add Call Center Services from CO-OP Member Center


"CO-OP Member Center simply makes us even more relevant to our members who are unable to reach us during typical business hours and affords us the opportunity to efficiently elevate our service levels during normal business hours via overflow services," said Stephen P. Grech, Executive Vice President, Credit Union ONE, Ferndale, Mich.

"We wanted to maintain longer hours of member service without adding call center staff and related operating expenses," said Derrick Barber, Director of Branch Operations, Telcom Credit Union, Novi, Mich. "Partnering with CO-OP Member Center was the perfect solution to help us achieve this goal. CO-OP Member Center made a seamless transition for our members.

Both credit unions had previously adopted network, payment processing and shared branching services from CO-OP.
