NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Fynanz, Inc., the financial technology company that develops customized private student lending solutions and powers the cuStudentLoans.org private student loan marketplace, today announced the release of a program to syndicate its College Resource Center (CRC) to all of their credit union partners.

The CRC, which is distributed from the cuStudentLoans.org private student loan marketplace, enables credit union partners the ability to quickly and easily integrate a powerful resource for college planning within their own websites. The content includes expert insight on the higher education industry, including how to plan college visits, school selection, choosing a major and navigating the college financing process. The content is developed and maintained by Ken O'Connor, a 10-year veteran of the financial aid industry and current Director of Student Advocacy at cuStudentLoans.org. Participating credit unions will automatically receive the most recent updates to their websites via the CRC's content syndication functionality.

"We're pleased to announce the release of a program that complements the financial literacy mission of many of our credit union partners," said Vince Passione, CEO of Fynanz. "Today more than ever, with escalating tuitions costs and increasingly competitive admissions standards, students interested in pursuing a college education need to be better informed on their options. This program helps bridge the knowledge gap that so many families face when developing their college plans," continued Passione.

"The College Resource Center provides a tremendous service to our members," said Mike Powers, AVP of Marketing for Garden Savings Federal Credit Union, which was the first partner to fully integrate the content. "The development and implementation was a quick and easy process, leaving our members with a thorough and comprehensive tool that they otherwise wouldn't have had on our website. A great feature, from a content management perspective, is that the content remains fresh without any additional effort from our staff," continued Powers.

The CRC, which has already been implemented by five credit union partners, will be made available to all credit unions currently within Fynanz's partner network. Current credit unions utilizing the center include Aspire Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), First Financial Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), Garden Savings Federal Credit Union (New Jersey), Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union (Washington), and Tri-Co Federal Credit Union (New Jersey).
