Vienna, Va. - CU Rise Analytics, a leading provider in data science and technology advancement solutions for credit unions, is excited to announce investments in the CUSO by CBC Federal Credit Union and Our Community Credit Union (OCCU).

“Our investment in CU Rise Analytics aligns with CBC Federal Credit Union’s belief that data analytics is a necessity for credit unions to be able to compete and grow. By leveraging existing information, it allows us to meet member expectations and compete with big banks and non-traditional competitors by being more efficient and effective. Big data is not effective until it is analyzed and used to meet and deliver on consumer and member expectations,” said Patrick Miller, President and CEO of CBC Federal CU.

CU Rise makes those insights possible through predictive modeling, data science and technology enablement.

About Our Community Credit Union

Simpson Employees Federal Credit Union, was established in Mason County on December 3, 1941 by a group of loggers. Their vision to having their own credit union was to offer fair savings and loan rates to workers unable to get basic financial services from the local bank. Since then the credit union changed its name to Our Community Credit Union (OCCU) to better reflect the growing and diversified member base. In 2010, OCCU expanded its field of membership to include all residents in the state of Washington. OCCU has $328 million in assets, over 27,000 members and operates seven branches located throughout Mason and Grays Harbor County and Vashon Island in King County.
