Seattle Bank has selected Fusion Phoenix from Finastra to run its banking operations.
This will enable the bank to build future capacity, with the core banking system integrated with additional Finastra solutions.
“Changes in technology and consumer behaviour are creating immense opportunities to redefine the banking experience for our clients,” said John Blizzard, president and CEO at Seattle Bank (pictured above, right).
“However, banks that are dependent on legacy core technology are at a disadvantage because those solutions do not allow fast, economical innovation.
“Our partnership with Finastra is the avenue to overcome this challenge and take back control of how we use technology to support the unique banking experience that our team works hard to deliver every day.”
“Seattle Bank was looking for a vendor to provide it with more than just technology to run its operations,” added Mike Dionne, senior vice-president of community markets for the Americas at Finastra.
“Working together, we will make sure that Seattle Bank remains innovative and open to the change taking place all around us, giving its digitally savvy clients access to the services they desire through better integrations, resulting in better outcomes and a superior customer experience.”
