2010 - New Decade, New Look!
This was the beginning of Oshawa Community’s transformation! New service counters were installed and new offices were built on the south side of the building. The aesthetics of the outside were updated as well, including the installation of awnings and the new Oshawa Community sign with our logo.
2008 - Introduction of the Cash Recycling Unit
The introduction of the Cash Recycling Unit (CRU), which enables staff to deposit, withdraw, exchange, count and even detect counterfeit bills was a game changer. Because the CRU counts the bills coming in and going out, the frontline staff is better able to focus on servicing the member, rather than documenting every bill that comes in and goes out. The CRU creates a paper trail which is extremely helpful for auditing purposes and balancing discrepancies. Furthermore, the CRU has multiple security features to safely hold cash eliminating the need for the frontline staff to carry excess cash.
2000 - Internet banking
Internet banking was introduced in the early 2000’s allowing members to conduct many transactions including checking balances, transferring between accounts, paying bills and more recently, Interac e-Transfers, enabling members to securely transfer funds to themselves at other financial institutions, as well as friends, family and business partners.
