In late February, CU*Answers, Inc., the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based cooperative CUSO, and MY CU Services, the payment and technology CUSO of Vizo Financial, launched their sales partnership to the marketplace, and in seven short months they have secured core data processing contracts from 40 credit unions. These credit unions will be converting to the CU*Answers CU*BASE® core over the next 16 months.

Rodney May, chief engagement officer for MY CU Services commented, “Credit unions have been incredibly supportive of our partnership with CU*Answers, and it shows with 40 contracts to join the CU*BASE core solution. Over the past year, we’ve worked really hard to create a combination of trust, cooperation and exceptional service among our credit unions, and it’s very exciting to us that they chose to pursue the path of collaboration along with us as part of our core membership.”

Scott Collins, EVP of National Sales and Marketplace Relationships for CU*Answers said, “We had a good feeling that our new partnership with MY CU Services would hit the ground running in a big way, and securing 40 core conversion contracts together validates that this is going to be a special partnership indeed. While the pandemic tossed us a couple scheduling curve balls, we are proud of the perseverance of not only our teammates at MY CU Services, but also their clients that were doing due diligence. We are humbled that CU*BASE has been selected and we are pleased to bring our broad and deep tool set, as well as the shared execution resources we have within our network, to bear for both the credit union teams and their members.”
