BETHESDA, Md., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Viamericas Corporation, an international licensed remittance company, announced a partnership with Union Plus to offer exclusive money transfer service benefits to union members.
Union Plus, founded in 1986 by the AFL-CIO, provides money-saving benefits and services to 12.5 million union members. These exclusive programs are not available to the public.
The partner program will offer union members a discount on fees for online money transfers. Union members can send money online anytime through the Union Plus benefits website, unionplus.org. The service is a new product called ViaModal, offered through the new Viamericas digital platform called Vianex.
"We're excited to bring a safe, convenient and reliable service to union families who regularly send money home," Union Plus CEO Mitch Stevens said. "We selected Viamericas because of their industry leading product offerings, low transfer costs and excellent customer support."
"Union Plus will be utilizing ViaModal, which is a small window that plugs into a partner's existing website, and allows users to complete a money transfer without ever leaving the partner's website," said Paul Dwyer, CEO of Viamericas. "This product enables partners to offer money transfer services to their customers with very minimal set up. It only takes about 30 minutes to have ViaModal up and running."
Viamericas offers money transfer services to 34 countries around the world, with over 51,000 payout locations. The Union Plus program launched in April for union members across the country.
