Corporate Central Launches Technology CUSO
To keep up with technological innovation and help credit unions work faster, smarter and more efficiently, the $1.74 billion Muskego, Wis.-based Corporate Central launched a credit union service organization called Emergifi.
The wholly-owned CUSO focuses on serving only credit unions with technology solutions. Emergifi aims to keep credit unions on the leading edge of systems innovation and service delivery, improving productivity and security while reducing cost and risk.
“We see growing demand for credit unions wanting to optimize their information technology,” Chris Felton, Corporate Central President/CEO, said. “Credit unions want a technology partner to help them navigate the digital transformation process, as well as a partner to help them acquire and implement emerging technologies. As a service arm of Corporate Central, Emergifi is a technology partner they can trust.”
Corporate Central’s senior vice president/chief information officer, Gregg Tushaus, now becomes President of Emergifi. Tushaus is an award-winning information technology expert. He spearheaded Corporate Central’s digital transformation and cloud migration processes since December 2016. Tushaus’ goal is to help credit unions understand, procure, and implement new technologies that will assure long-term viability.
“I’m looking forward to building and growing another technology business—this time, focusing solely on helping credit unions emerge as leaders in the fintech world,” said Tushaus, who is also the founder and former CEO of Tushaus Computer Services. “Emergifi is pursuing growth paths, which include acquiring technology businesses. We are also recruiting innovative staff for organic growth.”
The new CUSO recently launched its website, emergifi.com. The site features an easy-to-navigate layout like the new Corporate Central website. Emergifi’s website provides information about the CUSO’s portfolio of services, which include business applications, email, cloud storage, remote monitoring and management, backup services, service desk, product procurement services, compliance, implementation and migration services, endpoint security management and managed security services.
