Tools for Strategic Success

By Bob Rehm, CUDE, VP Sales and Service, Credit Union Resources

So you’re planning for next year.  You’ve got items on your strategic to-do list that are going to require some outside help. Here’s a place to start.

Simply put, Credit Union Resources provides products and services that help credit unions achieve their missions. That’s really at the heart of what we do—we provide product solutions in all four of the broad areas of credit union operations:

  • Financial Performance – achieving your bottom line
  • People – developing your credit union’s human capital
  • Operational Effectiveness – refining your credit union’s processes
  • Member Value – maximizing your member’s experience

Inside these four strategic categories, Resources represents carefully selected, exceptional companies that provide services such as insurance, employee benefits, shared branching, payment systems, ATM technology, retail discount programs, loan generation programs, checking account programs, and many more ways to better serve your members and grow your credit union. From our own professional consultants we offer services in human resources, staffing, marketing, research, financial audit, technical audit, strategic planning, and shared compliance, to name a few.

Check out the illustration that accompanies this article, as it can serve as a quick reference of all our solutions—solutions made for your credit union. For example, in the category of Member Value, you will see student loans as a service we offer. Our preferred business partner, CU Student Choice, gives your members a funding choice that’s good for them and good for your credit union when it comes time to borrow for college.

In the category of Operational Effectiveness, Diebold orchestrates the transformation of branches as the means to deliver multiple points of access and enhance the member experience. And in the strategic category of Financial Performance, Level 5 offers up a brilliant new program, FxAMP, to help credit unions manage their fixed-asset ratios under the new rules. Of course, these are just a few examples of our excellent partners.

Introducing Digital Benefit Advisors
Resources will soon welcome Digital Benefit Advisors as our newest preferred business partner. Under the category of People, Digital Benefit Advisors delivers a powerful new approach to employee benefits by combining the commitment of experienced, local market advisors with the sophisticated technology and resources of a respected national firm. Employers receive access to a broader variety of carriers, dynamic tools, proprietary products, and the ability to effectively navigate the complexities of healthcare reform.
