Sharetec and Larky partner to provide cross-selling opportunities to credit unions and location-based perks to members
ANN ARBOR, MI (April 20, 2017) — Sharetec System, core technology made simple, and Larky are pleased to announce that they are partnering to provide credit unions with a powerful, location driven platform that increases cross-selling opportunities, and provides members location-based perks that help support local businesses.
Gregg Hammerman, CEO of Larky, comments, “With our location-based platform, members receive mobile notifications when they are near a specific location where there is a special offer or the credit union wants to promote a specific product or service. This encourages local purchasing at the most convenient time for the member while increasing cross-selling opportunities for the credit union.” Gregg adds, “The Larky team is excited for this new partnership and all the added value and savings we see for Sharetec Credit Unions and their mobile members.”
The partnership between Larky and Sharetec offers an effective communication tool utilizing the mobile medium to relay important information to members. This turn-key mobile platform is a proven revenue generator through increases in interchange revenue, card usage, membership and cross-selling success with their products and services. Mobile members will receive immediate discounts and offers at their favorite and unique local merchants.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Larky. Our customers know that connecting with their members is the life blood of the credit union,” remarked Keane Kulak, Regional Director at Sharetec. “The challenge is rising above the noise that is distracting members from all the value a credit union can provide. Our partnership with Larky provides an incredible tool for credit unions using the Sharetec Core System to do just that and provide relevant information to save members money while increasing our credit union’s income by holding the ‘top of wallet’ position with their members.”
Larky builds compelling member rewards programs that help credit unions boost loyalty, drive non-fee income, and support local businesses. Larky cultivates valuable point-of-sale discounts at beloved local and national merchants that help members save $1,000+ per year simply by using their existing credit/debit cards. The turnkey web and mobile platform sends users location-based alerts at the right time and place to ensure they receive their discounts.
