CUs success continues as focus for CSS
MADISON, Wis. (2/23/10)--CUNA Strategic Services has added new alliances and expanded others to help credit unions succeed in today's challenging market. The alliances must pass stringent due diligence and request-for-proposal processes. They serve credit unions by increasing operational efficiencies or revenue generation; helping them meet regulatory standards and security concerns; and enhancing their relationship with members, said CSS. The most recent alliances added include:
* American Background Information Services, which is considered a pioneer in corporate security and risk mitigation. It offers background screening services that include employment or vendor screening, criminal background checks, employment and professional verification, and other security services. * John M. Floyd & Associates, which expanded its relationship with CSS to offer JMFA Contract Optimizer. Credit unions can use Contract Optimizer for expert advice on pricing, service, support and conditions related to proposals, contract and agreements--which provides savings for the credit unions. * CU-VO, which provides Internet video overlay technology for credit unions' websites. The technology will help them more actively engage their members with calls to action, advocacy and or information. * Diebold, which has continued its relationship with CSS. Through Diebold, CSS will offer the Magner line of coin and currency-handling products. * Verafin, which provides a compliance solution. Due to the success of and need for its compliance solution, Verafin will continue to assist credit unions in meeting Back Secrecy Act, fraud and anti-money laundering regulations through its relationship with CSS.
In 2009, CSS also added the Illinois Credit Union League Service Corp. to offer prepaid gift cards and reloadable debit cards, and Panini for check-scanning solutions.
