CU*Answers, the 100% credit union-owned cooperative CUSO, recently announced that Cornerstone Community Credit Union (Des Moines, IA) has chosen CU*Answers as its new data processor. Over a two year period Cornerstone Community Credit Union engaged in a full core vendor search project, exploring all of their options and weighing the benefits for members, ultimately opting to join the West Michigan CUSO.
“The decision was not only financially and technologically driven, with CU*BASE and our suite of online and mobile banking products making a strong offering,” said Mike Gruber, regional sales representative, “but also motivated by the cooperative nature of our organization and the network of credit unions working closely together that comes with it.”
As a CUSO, CU*Answers is owned by credit unions facing similar challenges and opportunities as Cornerstone Community Credit Union,” said Gary Key, Cornerstone Community’s CEO. “The cooperative business model that drives our credit union is the very same model that drives CU*Answers to deliver a core processing system that supports technology, growth and value-added member services.”
Cornerstone Community will be converting to the CU*BASE® system on February 1st, 2018.
