Fynanz Releases “College Resource Center” to Credit Union Partners
Fynanz, Inc., the financial technology firm that develops customized private student lending solutions and powers the cuStudentLoans.org private student loan marketplace, today announced the release of a program to syndicate its College Resource Center (CRC) to all of their credit union partners.
The CRC, which is distributed from the cuStudentLoans.org private student loan marketplace, enables credit union partners the capability to speedily and simply integrate a powerful resource for college planning within their own internet sites. The content consists of expert insight on the higher education business, such as how to plan college visits, school selection, selecting a key and navigating the college financing procedure. The content is developed and maintained by Ken O’Connor, a 10-year veteran of the financial aid industry and present Director of Student Advocacy at cuStudentLoans.org. Participating credit unions will automatically receive the most recent updates to their internet sites via the CRC’s content syndication functionality.
“We’re pleased to announce the release of a program that complements the financial literacy mission of many of our credit union partners,” said Vince Passione, CEO of Fynanz. “Today a lot more than ever, with escalating tuition costs and increasingly competitive admissions standards, students interested in pursuing a college education need to be better informed on their choices. This program helps bridge the knowledge gap that so several families face when developing their college plans,” continued Passione.
“The College Resource Center offers a tremendous service to our members,” said Mike Powers, AVP of Marketing for Garden Savings Federal Credit Union, which was the very first partner to fully integrate the content. “The development and implementation was a quick and effortless process, leaving our members with a thorough and comprehensive tool that they otherwise wouldn’t have had on our web site. A wonderful feature, from a content management perspective, is that the content remains fresh with out any additional effort from our staff,” continued Powers.
The CRC, which has already been implemented by five credit union partners, will be made offered to all credit unions currently within Fynanz’s partner network. Present credit unions utilizing the center contain Aspire Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), First Financial Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), Garden Savings Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union (Washington), and Tri-Co Federal Credit Union (New Jersey).
