CO-OP introduces API Suite

August 6, 2015

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (8/6/15)--CO-OP Financial Services is introducing a suite of application program interfaces (API) designed to help credit unions integrate the latest mobile and online technology directly into their existing mobile and virtual channels.

“CO-OP is the first provider to offer a complete API Suite, paving the way for greater access to mobile and online banking technology for credit unions and their members,” said Stan Hollen, CO-OP president/CEO. “With the CO-OP API Suite, credit unions can cost-effectively expand their mobile/virtual portfolios to meet growing member demand, while retaining the flexibility to add only those functions into their branded channels that work best for them.”

The CO-OP API Suite is led by CardNav by CO-OP API. CardNav was unveiled last year as a standalone mobile app that lets credit union members manage their cards on the fly. The app allows members to set preferences for when, where and how their cards are used, get near real-time alerts and push notifications, and turn their cards off or on. Now available as an API, credit unions can take advantage of CardNav functionality by providing it to their members from their own mobile apps.

In addition to the CardNav API, the CO-OP API Suite offers customizable versions of CO-OP mobile/virtual products, including the new RealPay by CO-OP person-to-person payments network; CO-OP Bill Pay, remote deposit capture, Member Rewards by CO-OP and CO-OP Shared Branch and CO-OP ATM locators.

The CO-OP API Suite also offers back-end integration, allowing for simple management and connectivity to existing programs.
