Credit Union 24 Still Growing Despite Processor Switch
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Despite being entrenched in a major switch-processor conversion, Credit Union 24 is still growing its credit unions and points of access, the second largest credit union-owned ATM and EFT network said. In November 2005, the network announced an agreement to switch over to Fifth Third Processing Solutions for its network processing and has been concentrating on ironing out the details related to that change. But at the same time the network has added approximately 3,000 new POS locations, and has welcomed eight new credit unions to the network. "Even with the resource-intensive conversion process from one switch platform to another, Credit Union 24 has not lost its focus on boosting access and convenience for our member credit unions," said Jim Park, Credit Union 24 CEO. "Increasing the network's footprint by consistently adding ATM and POS locations boosts value. Credit unions around the country recognize that value, and are joining our EFT community faster than ever." Enrolling in the Credit Union 24 network in the first quarter of 2006 were: Member Services FCU of Little Rock, Ark.; Genuine Parts CU of Norcross, Ga.; Atlanta Federal CU of Atlanta, Ga.; Southeast Georgia Health System FCU of Brunswick, Ga.; University Health FCU of Augusta, Ga.; Coral Community FCU of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Caprock FCU of Lamesa, Texas; and Tropicana Federal CU of Bradenton, Fla.
