CUNA Strategic Services

Carefully chosen providers that save credit unions time and money by providing the products, services and technologies needed to compete in the modern financial marketplace.

  

 

CUNA Strategic Services, Inc. (often referred to as CSS) provides credit unions with access to high quality products, services and technologies delivered with a competitive advantage made possible through volume pricing and strategic program development. CUNA Strategic Services is jointly owned by Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the state credit union leagues.

 

What does CUNA Strategic Services do for credit unions?

It starts with listening to credit unions in an effort to understand the business challenges they face. Then CSS researches all possible solutions, interacting with many product manufacturers and service providers to determine the type of program best suited to assist credit unions. After an initial high-level screening of candidate companies, a rigorous due diligence process is undertaken with a short list of possible partners. Their suitability is then gauged by measuring an exhaustive list of factors related to quality, financial soundness, integrity and cultural fit. Once an alliance partner is chosen, a compelling and unique offering is created that is competitively priced and designed to help credit unions compete effectively. Next CSS and the Massachusetts Credit Union League promotes that program to credit unions, educating them on the business challenge and the corresponding CUNA Strategic Services partner solution.

For more information about these excellent money saving opportunities please contact Dean Martino, Director of Busienss Development, Massachusetts Credit Union League at dmartino@cucenter.org or 1-800-842-1242.
