Since it was founded 20 years ago, MDT has continually modernized its infrastructure, ensuring that it can scale as credit union clients grow and evolve.

MDT is known for exceptional service and client satisfaction; the CUSO has a 97% retention rate for credit union clients.

King. “Founding partners John San Filippo and Roy Urrico and I agreed that in the category of Tech CUSO of the Year, MDT’s longstanding commitment to the credit union industry, along with the CUSO continually modernizing its tech infrastructure, made it stand out from the competition.” King added that for the first time in Tekkie history, MDT tied for first place in the category with Glia Technologies.
In addition to the core banking platform, MDT offers dozens of seamlessly integrated solutions and supporting services to help run the entire institution, such as digital banking, payments, lending, cybersecurity and imaging. Not just a technology provider, the CUSO also offers consulting services around project management, data analytics, M&A activity, digital transformation and more.
