RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (February 23, 2012) – Live testing of CO-OP NextGen ATMSM is underway in the headquarters lobby of CO-OP Financial Services in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., with general availability anticipated by the end of second quarter 2012.
project leaders inaugurating the process are, from left, Terry
Pierce, Senior Product Manager; Eric Porter, Executive Vice
President, Business Development and Marketing; and Dr. Kathy
Herziger-Snider, Vice President, Product Development. CO-OP
Financial Services and Diebold, Incorporated, are partnering on the
development of the new application software,
intended to allow members
of participating shared branching credit unions to conduct nearly all branch transactions at a Diebold automated teller machine (ATM).
CO-OP Financial Services is the first payment processor to offer this solution to credit unions using existing terminals and infrastructure, therefore, allowing an institution to better leverage their initial ATM investment. CO-OP NextGen ATM will enable members to conveniently conduct most transactions on their own, freeing in-branch staff to concentrate on more complex revenue activities. CO-OP NextGen ATM is anticipated to complete internal beta testing in early April.
CO-OP NextGen ATM will work with all shared branching platforms within the CO-OP Shared Branching family, with no conversions necessary. For more information, visit www.co-opfs.org.
