“We took a major turn two years ago when we sold our credit card portfolio to Elan and transitioned all the credit card issuance and servicing to Elan. This is their area of expertise, and we felt they could provide members with a better suite of products, fraud mitigation tools and communication tools.

There’s also huge efficiency with our card product. We got into member business lending this year, and Elan already had four different business credit cards available in the market. All we had to do is put our name on those cards. If we’d been working in-house with a card processor, it might have taken us a year to deploy. Instead, it was ready in two weeks.”
