Target small Credit Unions with $10,000,000 and under in assets. These Credit Unions cannot afford full-time staff. SCCU offers services that they need.

Marketing Geographically – Cover Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties Have recently expanded service to Credit Unions in New Jersey
Marketing Word of Mouth is SCCUs most successful marketing tool. Regulators and Trade Associations have recommended our services. Therefore most of the credit unions have approached SCCU. In the beginning SCCU did marketing via personal letters and contacted credit unions directly.

Branch opened in northeast Philadelphia shared with a larger credit union. However, several credit unions have membership throughout Delaware Valley. These members transact their business via telephone and mail.
In some cases SCCU e-mails the files to credit unions and/or download files via the internet. Terminal Service Remote Internet Access has been added. 11 credit unions are presently taking advantage of this option. Location
Biggest Challenges? Staff Potential employees may not have Credit Union experience But must be dedicated and interested in helping others And Willing to Learn When looking, remember. 1 full time person has been with SCCU since start of operation 1 part time person has been with SCCU over 10 years Part of SCCUs success can be attributed to low employee turnover.
