Strategic Link Question of the Week

Question: Our credit union was thinking about purchasing another ATM to provide some further convenience for our members. Is there a better solution to provide member convenience?   Could you tell me some more about the CO-OP Network?


Answer:Did you know that for less than the cost to maintain one ATM, you could provide your members with access to nearly 30,000 nationwide surcharge-free ATMs? Through Strategic Link’s partnership with CO-OP Financial Services, we are pleased to offer the CO-OP Small Credit Union Program specifically designed for credit unions under $100M in assets.


As the convenience orientation scale shifts from a reliance on full-service capabilities to self-service that is enjoyed on-the-spot, ATMs must be tightly integrated into the delivery channel mix.

You don’t have to be a BIG fish in order to provide a BIG service. Through our partnership with CO-OP Financial Services you receive reduced fees and you will save your members’ hard-earned cash by offering them ATM access at nearly 30,000 nationwide, surcharge-free locations, 9,000 of which also take deposits.
