The credit unions based their renewal decisions on several factors including the strategic partnership with their PSCU account executive; the platform’s robust functionality, “due date” funding model and proven security and reliability. Most importantly, they appreciate the overall value they receive as a Member-Owner of the PSCU cooperative.
