Deadwood Now Mobile Territory
The $28 million Dakota Territory Federal Credit Union in Deadwood, S.D., is now offering its widespread membership mobile banking through CO-OP Financial Services.
Dakota Territory FCU is one of 11 credit unions that have ordered mobile from CO-OP so far this year, the Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., CUSO said.
“Our community credit union encompasses the boundaries of the Lead-Deadwood School District, which is a geographically huge, mostly rural area, so the mobile banking capability is extremely important to our members,” said Floyd Rummel, its president/CEO.
He said the mobile and shared branching offerings appeal to the CU’s younger members and will encourage them to stay with the credit union if they move away for school or work.
The mobile service includes text, Web and downloadable app options and operates along with shared branching on CO-OP’s Next Generation Network platform, enabling the service to go live within 60 days after it was ordered, the company said.
