CU*BASE GOLD

CU*BASE is our state-of-the-art member data processing system combining the best of member information databases, marketing tools, high quality presentation tools, powerful processing capability and flexible configuration…all with a graphical interface that significantly shortens the staff learning curve.

CU*BASE is delivered to credit unions as both an ASP (application services provider/service bureau) and fully “turn-key” (self-processing) solution, offering a credit union or a group of credit unions the ability to be shared processors. The key is that CU*BASE provides identical functionality across all delivery methods, and allows credit unions the flexibility to pick and choose, and even move from one delivery method to another based upon a credit union’s business plan.

CU*BASE Servicer Edition

CU*BASE SE is a robust suite of products that lets you be creative, leverage your relationships, and simplify your technology decisions. Having a strong centralized solution like CU*BASE SE will inspire your teams to “flip the switch” to activate new services and build new solutions, without the delays and expensive extra investments that are the death of so many new initiatives.

Even better, CU*BASE SE is a CUSO product, brought to the market by a network of CUSO partners, who together have built networks, products, and services that engage more than 200 credit unions nationwide.
