Are your vendors acting like providers or partners? Vendors provide a service for a price. A CUSO is a true partner, adding value that enables the mutual success of both parties. A CUSO delivers incremental benefits to its owners directly through scale in buying power, partnerships with industry leaders, and direct access to the services credit unions need to compete with banks and other financial services providers.

CUSOs were founded and built by credit unions for the purpose of helping them access best-in-class products and services at competitive prices. And as a credit union owned cooperative, its owners contribute a collectively unique perspective on their strategic needs to thrive and grow in their market. This collaborative approach ensures that the focus of the cooperative addresses the highest priority needs of its membership.

CUSO owners are able to derive value from the CUSO’s deep pool of experience and expertise. This spans the spectrum of payments for the credit union owners of PSCU, including risk and fraud management, strategic portfolio and marketing consulting, credit union operations and call center management. Credit union owners should rightfully expect their CUSO partner to help in lifting their performance across nearly all business disciplines and operations.
