BIRMINGHAM, Ala., and TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (5/5/15)--Credit Union Vendor Management (CUVM) has partnered with the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA), the League of Southeastern Credit Union (LSCU) announced.
CUVM is a wholly owned subsidiary of LEVERAGE, Strategic Partners and CU Solutions Group (eSignal May 4).
“This partnership is the first of its kind and a true win-win for both CUVM and Strategic Link,” said CUVM Chair and LSCU President/CEO Patrick La Pine. “CUVM has the opportunity to market its products and services to a new region that includes Washington and Oregon, while Strategic Link can offer a service that holds critical importance to Northwest credit unions.”
The partnership was created after member credit unions in the Northwest identified a need for a vendor management solution.
“With the need to comply with (National Credit Union Administration) mandates on vendor relationships, CUVM is more relevant than ever, providing solutions that make staying compliant easier,” La Pine said. “Plus, CUVM clients are finding that less staff time is being devoted to vendor management and now being focused on providing services to their members."
