Scottsdale, Arizona, January 10, 2019 – Hypur Inc. (Hypur) announced that Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU), one of the largest credit unions in the United States with more than $4.3 billion in assets, selected Hypur as its technology provider for their cannabis banking program in Ohio.

WPCU will utilize Hypur’s cloud-based regulatory compliance software to automate new account onboarding, document management, SAR/CTR filing, to monitor transactions and validate that deposits are generated from permitted medical marijuana sales.
WPCU will also utilize Hypur’s electronic payment technology to help cannabis businesses reduce their reliance on cash, providing a more traditional shopping experience for their customers and improving the safety of stores and their communities.
“Our board approved serving medical marijuana businesses with the expectation that management would implement a compliance program designed to meet or exceed regulatory requirements, supporting community safety, as well as rigorous ongoing monitoring of all account transaction activity. To achieve this goal, we realized the need to utilize technology designed specifically for this industry. After an extensive vendor selection and due diligence process, we chose Hypur and its proven technology and comprehensive feature set, “ said Scott Everett, WPCU Vice President of Member Business Services and General Counsel.
“We are honored WPCU chose our technology to power their marijuana-related business banking program.
