LUXEMBOURG and ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. (Nasdaq:ASPS), a leading provider of knowledge process services related to real estate mortgage portfolio management, asset recovery management and customer relationship management, and Members United Corporate Federal Credit Union, an $8.9 billion financial institution that provides wholesale investment, credit, payment and correspondent services to approximately 2,100 credit unions, have established a strategic alliance to support Members United's credit union members.
"The alliance with Altisource, one of the nation's leading mortgage service providers, was established to help Members United's 2,100 member credit unions navigate through these turbulent economic times," said Kevin Brauer, Senior Vice President of Member Relations for Members United. "Through this alliance, Altisource will offer its origination, modification, loss mitigation and real estate services as well as technology to credit unions to help them effectively manage their distressed loans and mortgage application processing needs. Using the power of aggregation, this alliance will allow our members to improve service and performance while also reducing costs."
"Due to the unique nature of each member's business, an 'off-the-shelf' solution would not address our needs," added Tim Bruculere, Vice President of Lending for Members United. "We interviewed several companies, and Altisource was the only provider who understood our needs and offered tailored solutions across our member community."

Altisource's core services and technology will be adaptable by each member and ultimately drive members' loan volumes and make members' loans worth more," said William B.
