CU*Answers signs Affinity Credit Union
GRAND RAPIDS, MI (September 20, 2017) — CU*Answers announced that Des Moines, Iowa-based Affinity Credit Union has recently executed a contract to migrate its existing core data processing system over to the CUSO’s CU*BASE® suite in March of 2018. Affinity will become the CUSO’s second customer-owner in the greater Des Moines area.
“We are pleased to welcome Andy (Affinity CU CEO Andrew Fogle) to the cooperative as our newest customer-owner,” said Scott Collins, the CUSO’s EVP of national sales and marketplace relationships. “Our team worked closely with Andy and his senior team during their due diligence efforts over the past several months, and their recent decision to come on board early next year was great news for our cooperative.”
According to Fogle, “We are very excited to be joining forces with CU*Answers as our new core data processing partner. It would be difficult honing in on just one reason why we chose CU*Answers. It was really a combination of many factors, like their member-facing technology, the fact that we could own the technology along with our peers, and their cooperative business model. The thought of our two cooperatives working together on our business plan for many years to come has us excited about our members’ future.”
