Global Axcess Realizing Record Growth of Branded Cash Program.
Owned and managed by Nationwide Money, the Branded Cash Program is a turnkey ATM network solution that is marketed to credit unions, community banks and regional financial institutions. By partnering with Nationwide Money, a financial institution is empowered with the ability to broaden its market area, offer its customers free ATM access and promote its own corporate identity among consumers in the markets they serve -- all at a fraction of the cost of what it would require if they owned, operated and supported their own ATM network.
New Branded Cash partners include a series of community banks and credit unions located primarily in Washington, D.C., Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and include, but are not limited to:
* Henrico Federal Credit Union, * Library of Congress Federal Credit Union, * Burke & Herbert Bank and Trust, the oldest bank in the State of Virginia, * Union Bankshares Corporation, and * Millennia Community Federal Credit Union.
"Since first introducing our Branded Cash Program to the marketplace as an alternative, cost efficient solution for small and regional financial institutions interested in offering their customers ATM convenience, we have experienced a steady, upward growth rate for this business line -- that is, until the second quarter of this year," stated Michael Dodak, CEO of Global Axcess. "Beginning in April, Branded Cash took flight and continues to expand at a record pace. Based on our current pipeline of prospective new partners, we fully expect to remain on track to exceed 600 branded sites by year end."
