Arriving January 2022: Enhanced Batch Maintenance File for CO-OP Clients!


This alert only applies to online CO-OP clients

Attention credit unions that utilize CO-OP for debit card processing:

Some of you have reached out to us requesting to move to the CO-OP APBATCH4 enhanced nightly batch maintenance file and have voiced interest in opportunities for their wallet programs.  Others have reached out requesting to move to the enhanced file so that the cell phone number can be provided for CO-OP’s fraud alert program.  Presently, we have heard from approximately 25 credit unions who are interested in this enhanced file.

GREAT NEWS!  CU*Northwest is  pleased to announce the APBATCH4 nightly batch maintenance file for debit cards will be arriving in January of 2022, at NO COST!  This will be available to all CO-OP credit unions in our network!

We are currently in the process of coding and testing, which is the part of the process where you get involved.  We need you to follow the link below to sign up to let us know that you are interested!  We will be working with CO-OP to determine an implementation plan and will follow up with an implementation date for everyone who signed up.


MORE GREAT NEWS!  While working with CO-OP on this plan, they have agreed to waive all costs on their side as well.  Together, CU*Answers, CU*South and CU*NorthWest, along with CO-OP, see the value in changing the enhanced APBATCH4 nightly file format.
