CHILLIWACK, British Columbia — Smaller credit unions under $500 million are going Cuckoo to compete with bigger banks–and that is a great thing.

Recently launched by credit union marketing firm Currency Marketing, Cuckoo provides a range of stock marketing and advertising campaigns to help credit unions reach their target markets.
