A World Class Facility

CU*NorthWest believes your data processing environment should be shown the same care and concern as what it represents – your members and the reputation of your credit union.  That’s why we have spared no expense in securing the best and safest environment for your data and processing needs.

Whether it’s redundant communications, backup strategies, facility excellence or continuity planning and infrastructure, we not only meet regulatory requirements but exceed them.  That’s why we have chosen to house our data center operations in the premiere business continuity and data center collocation environments in the Northwest.

Site-Four is a top tier provider of state-of-the-art processing environments.  Combined with resident CU*NorthWest technical departments, our online (ASP) processing environment is virtually unmatched and allows our clients to rest assured they are protected around the clock.

A layered approach is taken for each essential component including primary power, backup power with continuous generation, redunant multi-path communications, and state-of-the-art security.  In addition, we engage in regular SAS70 Type II audits with free report distribution to our clients – just for everyones peace of mind and a checkup for our own internal procedures.

In today’s regulatory environment, it is becoming increasingly more challenging to go it alone.  But that is simply a business decision each credit union makes for themselves and we respect the approach of those who choose to process “inhouse”.  But for those who don’t, we have spared no expense in making sure you have the best.  And for those who choose to remain “inhouse”, the added comfort of knowing our support resources are housed in an environment that insures uninterrupted availability is important as well.
