New video teller machines, construction updates and more!
Earlier this summer, Blue broke ground on its new Lafayette, Colorado branch. Additionally, we are currently undergoing a complete interior remodel of our Dell Range branch in Cheyenne, Wyoming. There are so many things to be thankful for this holiday season, but we know our construction and development teams are grateful for good weather that has helped keep us on schedule. Finally, our eServices team has been busy introducing a brand new piece of technology, called Interactive Teller Machine (ITMs), at our Yellowstone branch drive-thru that will help us provide an even better level of service to busy members on the go. We’re pleased to share an update on each of these wonderful additions to Blue and as always, we’ll be sure to keep you informed as we open (and re-open) new branches!
Interactive Teller Machines (ITMS) join Blue
We’re taking the convenience of our drive-thru to an entirely new level. We know our members enjoy seeing our staff, but especially in these colder months, it can be inconvenient to get out of the car just to make a quick deposit. So, we brought the best of two worlds together with the first ITM machines at Blue. While similar in size to a traditional ATM, these machines are far more robust with live video with a real life teller (who happens to be located in the same Yellowstone branch!) You can conduct pretty much any transaction you would at a standard teller line or drive through. These drive through conveniences are staffed during our normal hours of operation at the branch, however afterhours, the machines resume function as a regular ATM where you can deposit checks and withdraw cash.
The Yellowstone ITMs are open for business and we hope you’ll enjoy this fantastic new piece of technology that your member-owned credit union has brought to you. Be on the look out for more ITMs to come in the future at your favorite branch!
Dell Range is looking great!
In September, we began an interior remodel of the Dell Range branch. As one of our busiest branches, the new interior will reflect a modern feel and focus on convenience. We will be hosting a grand re-opening in January 2019, but portions of the branch are already opening back up for you to conduct your everyday banking business. As always, the Dell Range drive-thru is open during normal business hours along with four other convenient Cheyenne locations. Final completion of this remodel is anticipated to be done in mid-December.
Great weather keeps Lafayette branch build on track
Blue’s newest branch build is progressing well in Lafayette. Situated right off of Highway 287 (near Good Samaritan Hospital), this branch is all about serving a booming population in the greater Boulder County area. The branch is actually starting to look like a branch! The construction team has been very fortunate with mild, late fall temperatures – which can always be volatile in the Rocky Mountains. Lafayette is anticipated to be open in early 2019 and we will provide even further details as we get closer to finishing this gem!
