Smart Phone App for Locating a Credit Union or an ATM

TORONTO, ON, March 20, 2012 – Credit Union Central of Canada (Canadian Central) today launched a new, free, mobile application that enables users to find credit union locations and ATMs anywhere across Canada via their iPhone®, BlackBerry®, Android™ or Windows®  smartphone.

Called Canadian Credit Union Branch and ATM Locator, the GPS-enabled app provides directions and interactive maps to credit union branches and ATMs available on the ACCULINK® service and THE EXCHANGE® network across Canada. It also gives an overview of branch hours and services available at each of these locations.

“Canadians have come to expect instant access to information through their smartphones,” explained David Phillips, president and CEO, Credit Union Central of Canada. “Providing a way to find locally and nationally-based surcharge-free ATMs and credit union branches through a mobile app is an effective way of addressing mobile user’s needs and delivering a positive user experience.”

“The launch of this project is an excellent example of the collaborative efforts of the credit union system,” added Wendy Bradley, senior manager, Payments, Credit Union Central of Canada. “Affinity Credit Union reached out to Canadian Central with the idea of system-wide, customizable mobile app; recommended the development organization we could work with; and volunteered to be the test pilot for the personalization of it. From there, we looped in staff from across the system to provide advice and recommendations, and as a result, we now have another incredible new product offering for our members.”
