Larky Announces Partnership with Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD)
Bismarck, ND - September 20, 2016: Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) is excited to announce a new partnership with Larky. “We're thrilled to work with Larky on 'Dakota CU Edge'. This new initiative highlights the value credit unions bring to the community by helping consumers save money, supporting local business, and more.” said Corey Prince, VP of Innovation & Relationships at CUAD. “Larky's unique location aware platform automatically notifies users when they are near any of the hundreds of unique and special discounts at great merchants throughout the Dakotas that are available as part of this initiative."
Dakota CU Edge will be available for free download to consumers throughout the region. The app will include unique offers on dining, entertainment, health, home, auto, travel and more. Credit Unions can leverage the platform to increase their exposure to consumers and to support local businesses.
"It's an honor to be a part of a program that amplifies the value that credit unions bring to the communities they serve. At the same time, as we’ve been able to see with other credit unions that have already signed up through our collaborative efforts with the Filene Research Institute, the program builds credit union brand recognition, helps consumers save money and support local businesses. It's a win all around.", said Gregg Hammerman, CEO of Larky. "The association has been great about structuring this program so credit unions of all sizes across the Dakotas can participate."
Headquartered in Bismarck, ND, the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) is the professional financial trade association serving 75 credit unions in North and South Dakota with assets in excess of $5.5 billion and serving over 461,300 credit union members.
