CUAnswers extends free text banking period
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (7/6/12)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based credit union service organization (CUSO), has extended its free text-banking promotion through October 2013.

In December 2010, the company initially offered It's Me 247 Mobile Text Banking to its base of more than 200 credit union clients at no charge to credit unions for 18 months to help credit union develop a text banking presence. At its 2012 annual Leadership Conference held in June, CU*Answers extended the free period, giving credit unions an additional 18 months to grow text banking among their memberships.

It's Me 247 Mobile Text Banking includes real-time, text alerts for tasks balance inquiries, loan payment due dates, automated clearinghouse deposits and withdrawals posted. The text banking product includes an automated member pricing component to allow credit unions to offer the service for a monthly charge or on a per-text basis, with integrated relationship waivers.

It's Me 247 Mobile Text Banking is a companion to CU*Answers It's Me 247 online banking and mobile Web banking products offered by the CUSO within the cuasterisk.com network.
