Two Wisconsin shared-branch networks merge
GREENFIELD, Wis. (3/24/09)--Two shared service center networks in Wisconsin have merged, effective March 1, to expand service locations for their participating credit unions at a time when many other financial institutions are cutting back. The combination of Wisconsin Credit Union Shared Service Centers Inc. (WCUSSC), serving members in Southeast Wisconsin and the greater La Crosse areas, and Badger Shared Service Centers Cooperative (BSSCC), serving members in the Madison area, will be the fourth largest branch network among financial institutions in the U.S. WCUSSC will manage BSSCC, operating a combined total of 26 branches under the trade name Credit Union Service Centers. Because the branches are part of a national network, members of participating credit unions can access 3,608 shared locations across the country. The entire system serves 1,547 credit unions with about 37 million members. The merger eliminates inner-network fees between the organizations and reduces transaction prices for BSSCC credit unions while offering improved technologies, said WCUSSC.
