Bank-Fund Staff FCU Chooses ARCA Cash Recycler

CM18 installed in all branches of one of the country’s largest credit unions

MEBANE, NC (Dec. 18, 2012) – Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union, which serves employees of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund, recently placed ARCA’s CM18 cash recycler in all of its branches.

“After seeing the CM18 in action at an industry event, we requested an in-branch trial,” said Francois Verleysen, General Manager, Community Relations and Membership Development. “When our tellers tested out the solution, they were as impressed with it as we were.”

The CM18, which handles deposits and withdrawals automatically in a UL 291 safe, takes the place of exposed teller drawers. With a small footprint, it works in nearly any setting and is available in sit-down and stand-up configurations. It also helps streamline operations for busy financial institutions – an important feature for BFSFCU, the country’s 33rd largest credit union.

“We chose to partner with ARCA because of the quality of its product and its reasonable pricing,” said Verleysen. “For us, the CM18 was a very smart investment.”
