Financial Services Centers Cooperative said its new shared branching locator application for the Android smart phone has already been used more than 5,000 times in the first week of its availability.
The app was developed by LocatorSearch LLC and is being offered as a free download through the Android Market. It provides locations, contact information, hours and driving directions to more than 6,400 shared branch locations in the FSCC network.
"Whether a credit union member is trying to locate a branch or a 7-Eleven location near their home, work, school, or even while they are traveling, this app will provide them with a list of the most convenient locations," said Sarah Canepa Bang, president/CEO of FSCC in Ontario, Calif.
New York-based LocatorSearch already was providing its CIMple Locator solution, a suite of customizable Web, mobile and telephone locator services, to FSCC.
FSCC said the app carries the CUSO's familiar swirl logo and has already been downloaded more than 300 times since it was added to the Android Market last week.
