ROCKVILLE, Md. (3/30/12)--NeighborBench, a provider of compliance solutions for credit unions, recently chose Ongoing Operations, a business continuity and technology credit union service organization, to host its secure, cloud-based infrastructure.

Ongoing Operations is a CUNA Strategic Service provider.

"Our platform was designed to provide community financial institutions with the kind of bench strength they need to tackle complex issues--like compliance--more efficiently," said Ken Wolff, founder/managing partner of NeighborBench. "We needed a partner who was familiar with the strict security requirements of credit unions and were impressed with the depth and breadth of the cloud solutions Ongoing Operations offers."

"One of the most exciting things about our cloud-based solutions is the flexibility and scalability they provide for credit union vendors," added Kirk Drake, Ongoing Operations CEO. In addition to serving credit unions directly, the company provides suppliers with platforms that suit their needs.

NeighborBench's compliance solution combines automated tools with professional expertise and is designed to help reduce the primary challenges of compliance: cost, time, resource requirements, and the disruptive nature of traditional consulting firm solutions, the company said.
