    A Note From Chris

    In the blink of an eye 2017 will be in the rearview mirror and we will all be zeroing in on our initiatives and goals for 2018.  As the holidays usher in the final days of 2017, we want to pause and take measure of all we are thankful for over this past year; and express our heartfelt appreciation for your partnership and support. We thank you for all you do to keep the credit union movement moving forward. We thank you for helping more and more people, every day, live financially-better lives. Your hard work and dedication to the credit union mission of people helping people has made life easier for so many, and we hope you know just how impactful your work has been. We are here to facilitate that work. We are here to help you help your members. Together, we can keep changing the world for good. Thank you!  We wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous, healthy, and Happy New Year!

    Microsoft Big Data Solution
    Today, your company is capturing an unprecedented volume of information – including vast amounts of unstructured data such as files, images, videos, blogs, clickstreams, and geo-spatial data. You may have access to internal and external data and services and need to combine and analyze information from social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

    Batch processing is not keeping up with this data explosion and doesn’t enable timely decisions. You need it processed in real-time to make actionable results.

    Our Family of CUSOs

    Emergifi is our wholly-owned CUSO providing credit union technology solutions that improve productivity and security, and reduce costs and risk. Given the incredible pace at which technology is changing, credit unions are challenged to do business faster, smarter and more efficiently – or risk getting left behind. As a result, cloud computing is rapidly becoming a primary driver of business transformation, giving credit unions a way to differentiate, disrupt and gain share in the market.

    Our managed, cloud-based approach offloads low value utility services and focuses your resources on high value initiatives. Eliminate the burden of routine information technology (IT) operations and maintenance. With our approach, quickly and efficiently access technologies you need, when you need them. We optimize your credit union information technology operations, so you may focus on your business.

    Significantly optimize your revenue channels with CU-Save from InterLutions

    What is CU-Save? 

    • CU-Save is here to help credit unions maximize their bottom line performance. Our team will conduct a review of your credit union's vendor contracts at no charge to determine if opportunities for efficiencies, cost reduction or revenue enhancement exist.

We will definitely utilize them for future contract negotiations." - N.E.W. Credit Union
    • "I can trust that nothing will fall through the cracks - their track record for following through with the plan, both on time and on the money is unquestionable. Educators CU fully intends to use this solution going forward to review other areas." - Educators Credit Union
    • “Why didn’t we do this years ago?  Why would anyone not find value in this process? They made us look brilliant!” – Michigan Credit Union

    Like most credit union executives these days, you wear a lot of hats. You're busy beyond busy, and your needs are constantly changing - especially as balance sheets become more complicated and portfolios become more sophisticated. To complicate things further, you may not have the time, tools and training needed to keep risk and opportunity balanced for peak performance.

    But...what if your credit union had an experienced partner that could:

    • Help maximize day-to-day balance sheet performance?
    • Do the never-ending math you don't have time to do?
    • Expertly adjust plans and projections as markets and goals change?
    • Run "what-if" scenarios and strategize for you?
    • Find opportunity on both sides of the balance sheet?
    • Build a balance sheet with muscle, flex and stamina?
