CU*NorthWest Expands to California

CU*NorthWest (CUNW), a 100% credit union-owned data processing CUSO serving the Northwest announced today that it has contracted its first credit union client in the state of California. 1st Valley Credit Union of San Bernardino will convert to the CUSO’s flagship data processing solution, CU*BASE, in May of 2010.

“We are very excited that the CU*BASE core processing solution has moved into California through CU*NorthWest and we have an opportunity to become a part of the rapidly growing network of CUSO’s and credit unions. After evaluating nearly every mainstream data processor on the market, it was an easy choice for us,” said Gregg Stockdale, CEO of 1st Valley.

Together with its alliance partners CU*Answers (Grand Rapids, MI), and CU*SOUTH (Mobile, AL), CU*BASE serves over 175 credit unions with more than 1.6 million members.

CU*NorthWest will use 1st Valley as an anchor through which it hopes to expand its presence in California. 1st Valley will utilize the fully integrated product suite of CU*Base to include home banking, audio response, mobile phone banking and imaging solutions.

Today 1st Valley Credit Union has over $30 million in assets and servers over 4,000 members with a full suite of financial products and services.
