BancVue’s Kasasa 360 Financial Management platform received a bit of a upgrade recently, thanks to a partnership with PFM expert, MoneyDesktop.

By bringing together MoneyDesktop’s expertise in PFM with Kasasa’s national brand of rewards checking and savings, the two hope to drive account acquisition, account retention and increase cross-selling opportunities.
