Record twenty credit unions converted to CU*BASE® in 2015

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (November 6, 2015) — CU*Answers, the 100% credit union-owned cooperative CUSO, and its network partners CU*NorthWest and CU*South, are proud to announce that the core data processing system CU*BASE now exceeds 260 credit unions in 36 states, with a combined 2.2 million members processed daily. This includes a record 20 new CU*BASE conversions completed during the 2015 fiscal year, adding 176,000 members.

“We’ve seen incredible growth over the last decade,” said Scott Page, CU*Answers Executive Vice President. “In 2010, CU*BASE represented 104 credit unions and 804,000 members. We’ve nearly tripled those processing numbers since then, and show no signs of slowing. We’re excited to welcome the next million members to CU*BASE and the extensive network of products and services we’ve worked to build.” As CEOs spread the word of CU*BASE and its network offerings, more credit unions and potential vendor partners are anxious to get engaged. It’s a rapidly growing technology model, uniquely positioned to serve credit unions financial/technology needs of today; not an outdated model of 10-15 years ago.

In addition to its core CU*BASE growth, CU*Answers now has 127 credit union owners nationally, including 48 new credit union owners since 2011. For 2014, CU*Answers announced it returned a combined $2.9 million in patronage dividends and interest back to their credit union owners.
