We’re delighted to introduce our members to our brand new website which has been in development over the past couple of months. We hope you like it!
We believe that the functionality provided by this site is the first step in providing our members with a genuine full service, community-based alternative to the for-profit banking sector. While many banks have embarked on programmes of branch closure and operational rationisation over the past few years, we have endeavoured to maintain a high standard of personal, face-to-face service at both our offices on Bandon Road and in Togher. We believe that people living in our community deserve to have access to basic financial services on their doorstep without having to pay astronomical fees and charges or without the frustration of always being shoved in the direction of machines and computers.
However, we also identified the need to develop an online and electronic services platform that provides our members with a quick, easy and interactive means of sorting our their finances whether they are in a position to call into our offices or not. The development of this site is in addition to the our recent roll out of our CU-Online facility and our CU-Anywhere mobile app. Indeed we see it as a strategic imperative to bring our services and products directly to our members via the latest technology. This website is designed to provide our members with better quality information about our products, services and activities in a more user-friendly manner than our old website.
We also aim to develop the functionality of this site so that members will be able to avail of the majority of in branch services on the go or from the comfort of their own living rooms. Indeed our ultimate objective is for members of The Lough Credit Union to be in a position to close their bank accounts and look after all their personal finance needs exclusively with us without having to worry about getting to the branch or missing out on the most up-to-date products and services on the market. So with that thought we’d like to invite you to take a look around and tell us what you think.
