Ideal CU President/CEO Brian Sherrick highlighted the exciting changes that have taken place in the past year, and how the name change to Ideal Credit Union last June has spurred growth. “We are now receiving Internet search traffic 10 times the amount we recognized prior to the name change and are opening approximately 40 new online accounts a month. Aided with a new online and mobile loan application, we have also seen significant growth in consumer loan applications.”

In the first 4 months members used the service to make over 6,000 deposits. In addition, Ideal CU now offers the convenience of Apple Pay for its Consumer and Business MasterCard Debit cards. “This technology, along with our mobile loan application, online banking, ATM and Shared Branching network allows Ideal Credit Union members to manage their finances anywhere in the United States.”
