PSCU, the nation’s premier payments credit union service organization (CUSO), has announced the launch of the PSCU Payments Index, the next evolution of the CUSO’s successful consumer payments trend analysis. In this new monthly publication, PSCU will provide its credit unions and the broader market with timely data, analysis and thought leadership to help make informed, strategic decisions.
As the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have surpassed the one-year mark, year-over-year performance trends are now influenced by the significant shifts in consumer behavior experienced over the past year. Following the success of PSCU’s Transaction Insights, a weekly analysis comparing year-over-year transactions from its Owner credit union members to identify the impact of COVID-19 on consumer spending and shopping trends that was published from March 2020 through March 2021, the new monthly PSCU Payments Index uses 2019 purchasing history as a baseline comparison for 2021 results, as well as a comparison to 2020. This three-year view provides both a pre-pandemic comparison and insight into how consumer behavior continues to evolve since the impacts of 2020.
PSCU, the nation’s premier payments credit union service organization (CUSO), has announced current Owners Honolulu Federal Credit Union (HOCU) and HFS Federal Credit Union(HFS) have expanded their partnerships with the CUSO, while Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union (Pearl Hawaii) has joined the cooperative as a new Owner. All three will partner with PSCU for credit and debit processing services.
“PSCU is extremely proud to continue to grow our Owner base in Hawaii through these existing and new partnerships,” said Scott Wagner, EVP, chief revenue officer at PSCU. “When long-term Owners like Honolulu Federal Credit Union and HFS Federal Credit Union choose to extend their working relationship with us, it is a testament to the continued trust and value they place in our CUSO. In addition, we are eager to welcome Pearl Hawaii Federal Credit Union to the PSCU family, and look forward to providing an unparalleled member experience, cutting-edge technology and high-quality services to this new credit union partner.”… Read more
