Corpor-ate America Family Credit Union is using Web Carbook information from Chrome Data Corp. to help its members shop for cars on-line.
Members of the $320 million-asset credit union can now research new- and used-car specifications and prices at the credit union's Web site before applying for an automobile loan.
The Web Carbook connection has let the credit union expand service without adding employees, said Jason Yormark, marketing representative for the credit union. "We've become a one-stop shop for members who want to research automobile prices before they apply for a loan."
The Elgin, Ill.-based credit union distributed $3.2 million in new car loans and $1.6 million in used car loans in August. It has 64,000 members employed by more than 450 sponsor companies nationally.
