The $2-billion, Burbank, Calif.-based Lockheed FCU is using the Call Center Outlet to expand service to its members, while the $1.2-billion Redwood City, Calif.-based Provident Credit Union is using it for overflow to cover regularly scheduled training meetings on Wednesday morning, and for Saturday hours.

CUDL, LSI Enter Partnership

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.-CU Direct Corp. (CU Direct), the largest US point-of-sale network for credit unions and administrator of the Credit Union Direct Lending (CUDL) and DecisionApp systems, has entered into an agreement with Lending Solutions, Inc. (LSI), an Elgin, Ill.-based lending center. "This new relationship between Lending Solutions, Inc. and CU Direct addresses the loan approval process for the applications that do not receive automatic credit union approval," the companies said. "Dealers need quick, efficient alternative options that also allow them to keep the loan with the credit union. By helping credit unions make this possible, CU Direct and LSI enable more members to finance a new or used car through their credit unions, strengthening the credit unions' indirect lending portfolios."
