Product/Service Consulting - Business Solutions

Venturing in to new territory is scary for anyone and our consultants offer guidance with decision-making and implementation for any new service. MSCUA will assist with cost/benefit analysis, policy development, implementation procedures, and third party negotiations. 

In addition, by pooling credit unions’ buying power together, MSCUA & CUNA Strategic Services negotiates discount pricing on many products and services.
We begin with listening to credit unions in an effort to understand the business challenges they are facing. We then research all possible solutions, interacting with many product manufacturers and service providers to determine the type of program best suited to assist our member credit unions. We undertake a rigorous due diligence process and gauge suitability by measuring an exhaustive list of factors related to quality, financial soundness, integrity and cultural fit.
