Ongoing Operations Expands into Exchange-based Cloud IT
Ongoing Operations, a popular CUSO and credit union, is working with Cloudworks, an Exchange provider, to provide the new hosted IT enterprise services. Several CUSOs and credit unions are in the implementation stage, the disaster recovery and business continuity specialist said. This could signify a new move for the entire credit union industry to switch to the cloud.
“Credit unions’ overall IT expenses continue to grow and resources are often stretched thin trying to keep up with frequent hardware upgrades, patches and increasingly complex software licensing fees,” said CUSO President Kirk Drake, whose company now serves about 100 credit unions.
Mike Eaton, Cloudworks’ CEO, said his firm has been serving small and medium-sized businesses for 14 years.
“By combining our expertise in client migrations and highly customizable interfaces with Ongoing Operations’ secure data centers built specifically for credit union requirements, we have developed a truly unique solution with significant benefits for the industry,” he said.
