ATLANTA – Two credit union vendors have made the CIO Magazine’s “CIO 100″ list for 2004. SecureWorks and CUNA Mutual both made the list.

CIO recognized SecureWorks for adoption of a flat organizational structure, use of non-bureaucratic processes, and swift deployment of its supply chain. Mike Cote, CEO of SecureWorks, says “our clients expect and deserve no less. We avoid bureaucracy in favor of empowering everyone in the company to do what it takes to keep our clients satisfied and above all, protected.” CUNA Mutual was cited for its agility in providing its credit union customers with online employee screening that assists them in hiring reliable employees.The magazine said that technology helps credit unions to complete the hiring process much more efficiently. “CUNA Mutual has made a concerted effort at being able to adapt our technology initiatives to meet the rapidly changing business environment.
