CU 24 Had Record Year In 2004

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-The Credit Union 24 Network is reporting it set records during 2004 in participants, access and transaction volume, the latter growing 35% over 2003.

"While solid increases in ATM terminals and POS locations have broadened Credit Union 24's national footprint, in 2004 29 new credit union network participants brought a substantial number of new cardholders to the network," CU 24 said. "Credit Union 24 increased the number of ATM locations on the network from 28,000 to more than 65,000 in 2004, but attributed much of their growth to a record year in credit union membership and a more than 35-percent surge in POS activity."

In 2004, Credit Union 24 paid out more than $3.5 million in additional revenue to credit unions through its Platinum POS program.
