Credit Union Service Organizations get advice on starting, sustaining and succeeding with technology-based business.
TALLAHASSEE, FL (April 14, 2013) – United Solutions Company CEO Jim Giacobbe will be a panelist at the 2013 NACUSO Annual Conference; Giacobbe will be contributing on the topic of “Kick-starting Your Operational CUSO.” The panel, held on April 17, at 10:30 a.m. will discuss a variety of strategies and approaches which can be utilized to bring an operational CUSO live.
Giacobbe’s advice includes humorous axioms like “If there isn’t a patent pending, then it was your idea.” Stressing the importance of dependable revenue, Giacobbe emphasizes that new operational CUSOs should be careful not to “get caught up in client enhancements and suggestions. It’s your product!” he insists.
United Solutions Company, based in Tallahassee, FL, has been an operational CUSO for over 30 years, and Giacobbe has been CEO since 2010. USC provides a comprehensive menu of over 25 services to over 90 Credit Unions and Credit Union Shared Service Centers across the U.S., from core data processing to the latest in mobile deposit capture technology.
Experience has given Giacobbe some provocative ideas about starting, kick-starting and succeeding as an operational CUSO. His contribution to the panel will include ideas about how to “Keep your IT costs down,” and “Share your passion” to give your operational CUSO a kick-start. He also strongly believes in the power of solid partnerships. “Today’s market is too competitive to go it alone,” he says.
Finally, Giacobbe will explain why “If at first you don’t succeed, you should start another CUSO.”
Join Giacobbe and fellow panelists Bob Frizzle, CFO of CU*Answers and John Best, Chief Technology Officer at Wescom Resources Group, on April 17 at 10:30 a.m. at Encore Las Vegas Resort.
