Pasadena Credit Union Installs Machines to Accept Coin Deposits, Too

Pasadena-based Wescom Credit Union has become more transaction friendly with the addition of Cummins Allison self-service coin machines in all of its 22 branch locations.

In a statement, Cummins Allison, a leading U.S. provider of ATMs as well as coin, currency and check processing technology, said the addition of the new Money Machine 2 self service coin machines will enable the credit union to accept direct coin deposits.

“We have been transforming our branches—relocating and designing them to reflect today’s modern approach to banking, and that includes incorporating new technology,” says Kathie Chism, Wescom’s vice president of branch operations in a statement.

Chism said Wescom has offered coin counting services to its members since 2006 but the credit union’s coin counters have started to show signs of wear 10 years later.

“That was an impetus for us to see what other features and capabilities were out there,” says Chism.

According to Chism, the new self-service coin machines for Wescom are of better reliability and can handle direct deposits.

Wescom Credit Union has been helping Southern Californians build better lives since the Great Depression. With nearly 200,000 members, more than $3 billion in assets and 22 branches throughout five counties,

“The ability to accommodate direct deposit has been a real boon for members and staff alike,” says Chism.

“It’s a better banking experience when the machine immediately credits member accounts, and eliminates the need to reconcile misplaced or damaged deposit tickets.”

Cummins Allison says its Money Machine 2 self service coin counter has 16-capacity bags and has a noticeably quiet machine operation. It also features a front door configuration which makes accessing the coin bags simpler than ever.

In addition, the machine also has a smaller footprint, allows for better space utilization and has a reporting function.

“Another benefit of the Cummins Allison machine is its reporting function, which is second to none,” Chism said.

“We’re able to pull reports on demand, know that we’re in balance, and see what our coin machine capacity is at all times.”
