Online PR News – 09-December-2013 –Better Branches Technology, a provider of branch visitor queuing and workforce management software for financial institutions, announced that Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union has adopted their industry leading Better Lobby/New Accounts and Branch Appointment Calendar modules.

About Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union
Established in 1935 as the U.S. Veterans Facility Federal Credit Union with Federal Charter #242 (the second lowest charter number in the state of Mississippi), Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union has expanded over the years to include employees of various other employer groups in the Gulfport, MS region. In 1999, the Credit Union became the first in the nation to receive a dual-county community charter under the historic Membership Access Act of 1998, enabling anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Harrison or Hancock County to become a member. The Credit Union’s tagline, "Stop dreaming. Start living," serves to remind both employees and members alike that the Credit Union is driven by the same dream today as in 1935 when a handful of VA employees first envisioned it.
