Westerra CU Chooses CO-OP Credit From CO-OP Financial Services


Based in Denver, Colo., Westerra CU has total assets of $1.2 billion, making it the 144th largest credit union in the United States. The credit union is now using CO-OP Financial Services for both credit and debit processing.

“Our members have high expectations for the products, services and value they receive from their credit union,” said C. Alan Peppers, President/CEO of Westerra CU. “CO-OP Financial Services has proven to us they share these same high standards. CO-OP has an established track record, has proven very reliable and is responsive to our members’ needs. By consolidating under one card processer, we are able to streamline our systems and take advantage of volume discounts.  CO-OP understands how important it is to us to grow our credit card products, usage and member rewards – and they show a real commitment to helping us accomplish this goal. ”

With CO-OP Credit, CO-OP Financial Services offers clients the simplicity and lower processing costs of a bundled debit and credit solution. CO-OP Credit is an internal credit processing solution provided through a single connection to the host and delivered with the same CO-OP fraud, chargeback and credit union servicing processes used for debit and ATM program support.
