Irvine, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2007
Card Express International (CardEx), a leading prepaid debit card processor, is receiving high marks for its instant issue gift card program for SELCO Community Credit Union. The praise of CardEx's efforts for SELCO have resonated in the months since the program's holiday season launch, and reflects CardEx's focus on servicing credit unions. Last November, the company announced an agreement to provide eight CUs, totaling over 348,000 members, with customized, Visa prepaid debit cards. That deal was an outgrowth of CardEx's relationship with Pemco Technologies, a leading provider of innovative payment solutions.
"SELCO's Sure Fit Gift Card program was successful due to ideal timing. Our members had a need during the holidays and CardEx was there to fill that need," said Ann Carpenter, SELCO's Product Manager, Operations Management. "Effective marketing included inviting branch window advertising, marketing at each teller window, "on hold" messages, a website promotion, monthly newsletter announcements, and the gift card designs were great."
SELCO has been a Pemco Technologies customer since 2002, providing the credit union with debit and signature processing, as well as instant issue interface. Pemco also lauded CardEx's gift card program. "CardEx was great to work with," said Tanya Packer, director of business development. "They were responsive to our questions and acted on our concerns. By helping us with SELCO's gift card program, CardEx has helped us provide a needed line of business and strengthened our relationship with this customer."
