September 2, 2020: Columbus, OHIO - To better serve its community and business members with the most up-to-date approach to in-branch banking services, Telhio Credit Union is in the process of completing a $1.5 million expansion of its Northland Village building, which is set to be finished in December 2020.
Telhio's Northland Village location, 1795 Morse Road in Columbus, will feature Integrated Teller Machines (ITM) with biometric authentication, also known as palm vein scan. This specific technology is the most robust biometric feature to date and very secure. ITM's can dispense coins, vary the denomination of dollars withdrawn as cash, print out statements, and even allow members to make payments on loans or mortgages through the machine.
The Northland Village location was previously a drive-thru only location with a walk-up service window. Telhio Credit Union has expanded this branch's capabilities by adding 1,857 square feet to the existing building and investing in innovations and community spaces.
"We take great pride in being able to expand our personalized yet innovative financial service capabilities to the community and businesses in that area," said Leslie Bumgarner, President and CEO. "The remodeled Northland Village branch gives our members the utmost reliability in banking technology while also providing a space for them to work remotely and share ideas, helping us further our commitment to putting 'people over profit.'"
