Strategic Link Question of the Week

In today’s competitive card processing market, how can a small credit union compete with big banks that can afford more expensive products and services?

Credit unions of all sizes understand the frustration of having high prices and tight budgets stand in the way of offering members a new product or service, but Member Access Pacific (MAP), a preferred business partner of Strategic Link, Inc., has the solution.

MAP brings credit unions together in large numbers and leverages the collective buying power of its clients to negotiate lower costs for each individual credit union. In working together to achieve scale, even the smallest of MAP’s client credit unions sees a more affordable price tag on the products and services that they want for their members.


Strategic Link is the NWCUA’s wholly-owned service corporation, using the power of aggregation to provide the Association’s member credit unions with exclusive high-quality, competitively-priced products and discounted services. Is your credit union planning to upgrade its ATM services? Are you looking for new sources of non-interest income or a new card processing system?
