Who is CU*Answers?
One of the greatest assets CU*Answers has to offer is that our structure mirrors that of credit unions: the people who lead the CUSO are the same people who own it and participate in it as partners.
CU*Answers was founded in 1970 with the goal to provide credit unions quality technology solutions to grow and aggressively compete in a competitive financial environment.
CU*Answers represents one of the largest and most successful CUSO’s in the country and has been honored multiple times by NACUSO as CUSO of the Year. CU*Answers is owned by 143 credit unions nationally. Its Board of Directors consists of seven credit union CEOs providing a focused and vested interest in the success of CU*Answers clients. CU*Answers uses its considerable CUSO buying leverage to secure favorable pricing agreements with third-party vendors. These savings are passed directly to clients through discounted fees, guaranteed and patronage divided returns and elimination of large capital outlays.
CU*Answers provides services to over 180 credit unions nationally, representing 2 million members and $24 billion in credit union assets. The CU*Answers suite consists of an array of solutions including our flagship CU*BASE processing system, Item Processing services. A variety of Strategic Planning and Management/ Board of Director Consulting services are also available. CU*Answers is often looked to as being a “think tank” for developing new and innovative solutions for credit unions and prides itself on being a leader that improves business processes that deliver bottom-line results.
