We Have Solutions!
The Dakota Credit Union Association (DakCU) assists member credit unions in finding cost-effective solutions to help reduce regulatory and compliance burdens. Today, I would like to highlight some of the products and services that are available to you – many are provided as a FREE benefit of your membership!
InfoSight provides immediate access to current compliance topics which explain in laymen’s terms: What is the issue; How it affects credit unions; What credit unions need to do — the action steps needed. InfoSight also provides helpful tools, such as frequently asked questions and checklists.
This is NOT just for the Compliance Officer! Compliance touches every area of the CU and InfoSight can provide information for front line staff, HR, Loan Officer, Board & Volunteers, Executive Staff, Marketing, Collections, and more. InfoSight is provided as a FREE benefit of membership for affiliated credit unions.
COMING VERY SOON to InfoSight: Check Deposit Notice Generator. Consistently and objectively prevent all check losses for your members and credit union. Your credit union is exposed to thousands of dollars in liability on every check taken for deposit. Now you can prevent large check deposit losses, reduce significant expenses and provide demonstrably consistent beneficial member service in seconds.
ALSO COMING VERY SOON to InfoSight: Account Insurance Estimator. Estimate all key NCUSIF coverages and sell more profitable products and services. Your credit union has hundreds of thousands (if not tens of millions) of members’ funds in the NCUSIF with very little return for members. Now you can estimate all key NCUSIF coverages, promote your credit union and sell more products and services instantly.
Online policy service providing more than 230 complete operation model policies for credit unions. This full policy management system allows credit unions to edit, store, audit, distribute, and archive policies. Assignments, alerts and reminders help credit unions keep their policies up to date as regulations change over time. CU PolicyPro is provided as a FREE benefit of membership for affiliated credit unions.
DakCU partnered with another state association that has developed and shared with us CECL resources geared toward helping small credit unions across the country meet the new CECL requirements. We think these resources can be a game changer for credit unions in the Dakotas: Spreadsheets demonstrating methods; A primer detailing the information behind the spreadsheets; and Videos walking you through the primer and spreadsheets.
Custom Performance Reports
Custom Performance Reports are provided bi-annually as a benefit of your DakCU membership. The reports highlight and measure many areas of performance, including loans, shares, fee and other income, capital analysis, and liquidity trends, just to name a few. The analysis helps credit unions assess their performance levels by comparing this year’s results with previous results, by comparing trends in relation to your peer group or other benchmark, and by graphical information that provide additional insight into your credit union.
RateWatch reports provide a competitive comparison at the national level as well as the state level for either North Dakota or South Dakota. With rates, fees, and much more, RateWatch reports are designed to help you make informed pricing decisions faster and easier by providing relevant, timely, and accurate competitor data. Reports are comprehensive yet concise, giving you just the information you need, when you need it, in a format you can use. These reports are provided annually as a benefit of DakCU membership.
The RecoveryPro Disaster Planning Manual provides an organized approach to developing your business continuity plan. From identifying potential risks to creating emergency procedures to documenting procedures for restoring key technologies and services for your credit unions, RecoveryPro will guide you through it all.

ComplySight takes complex regulations and turns them into simple, straightforward summary language. ComplySight includes 16 areas of compliance and over 700 compliance factors for self-evaluation and self-grading. As a self-evaluation tool, a credit union can assess its regulatory compliance risk and identify potential trends or areas of possible noncompliance for immediate corrective action.
ComplySight also includes a comprehensive complaint management system to track complaints to ensure responsiveness and responsibility with reporting to identify potential trends or areas needing improvement. The system allows the credit union to assign tasks to employees and record corrective action.
