The partnership is a "natural extension" of the nearly two-decade shared branching relationship the league has had with CO-OP, said TCUL President/CEO Dick Ensweiler.
The Texas league has more than 500 member credit unions and provides services to more than 600 credit unions in Texas and Arkansas. CO-OP Financial Services, based in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., has more than 3,000 member credit unions and currently provides services to more than 220 credit unions in Texas and Arkansas.
Stan Hollen, president/CEO of the big CUSO, said, "Teaming with TCUL forwards our mutual goal of helping credit unions compete successfully against banks as primary financial institutions."
CO-OP offers multi-mode mobile banking and RDC for branch and home use and recently added outbound calling services to its contact center lineup.
