CU*NorthWest Enlists WESCO Net Support

Spokane, WA – May 5th, 2011
CU*NorthWest, a regional provider of the CU*BASE core data processing suite, has recently announced that it is partnering with Grand Rapids-based WESCO Net (a division of 100% credit union-owned CUSO, CU*Answers) for network management and team member support and development for its rapidly-growing network operations.

According to Greg Smith, CU*NorthWest CEO, the two CUSO’s have been working together since the formation of CU*NorthWest more than five years ago, but this partnership represents a more formal Agreement. WESCO Net will be maintaining the CU*NorthWest network and provide managerial oversight for locally-deployed technicians of the Washington-based CUSO.

Our networks are so tightly integrated on many levels, so it makes sense to take this synergistic approach,” he begins. “Our collaborative business design is at the heart of everything we do – both CU*NorthWest as well as our credit union owners and clients benefit when we leverage the resources available via WESCO Net and the rest of the network of CUSOs,” Smith continues.
