ICBA and Fiserv Extend Preferred Service Provider Relationship For Bank Intelligence Solutions
Honolulu, HI (Mar. 3, 2014)—The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) today announced that it has extended its agreement with Bank Intelligence Solutions from Fiserv as an ICBA Preferred Service Provider. Through Bank Intelligence Solutions, ICBA member community banks are able to use powerful online analytical tools to support critical decision-making and strategic planning.
“Through ICBA’s relationship with Bank Intelligence Solutions, member banks are able to gain visibility to financial, market and risk information and trends that enable them to identify opportunities for growth and make robust, fact-based decisions,” said Dan Clancy, ICBA executive vice president of services. “Overall, it gives bankers the information they need to enhance profitability and market reach.”
Bank Intelligence Solutions consists of three main programs: BankAnalyst® Market, BankAnalyst® Financial and BankAnalyst® Risk. BankAnalyst Market is a franchise growth tool that objectively and accurately quantifies realistic expansion potential at the branch level or for the entire community bank. BankAnalyst Financial generates quantifiable information and makes conclusions that will enhance the profitability of the bank. The BankAnalyst Risk tool quantifies a bank’s critical risk factors by assigning a risk score and providing trend direction indicators. These online analytical tools provide visual color-coded decision trees, custom peer comparisons and a structured four-step decision process to objectively identify the best opportunities for a bank to drive earnings growth and improve franchise value.
“Bank Intelligence has been working in strong partnership with ICBA as a Preferred Service Provider for more than nine years,” said Kevin Tweddle, president of Bank Intelligence Solutions from Fiserv. “Over these years thousands of community bankers have leveraged our analytical tools to drive performance and address critical banking issues, such as planning for growth in a down economy, maximizing branch network efficiency and developing successful market expansion plans. These are the types of banking decisions that must be backed with concrete, quantifiable facts, and that is what our tools provide.”
Bank Intelligence Solutions offers additional value to member banks through its monthly “Thought Leadership” webinar series designed for chief banking executives. To date, Bank Intelligence has hosted nearly 20,000 attendees to these complimentary webinars sharing timely information and valuable perspectives for bankers through topics such as non-interest expense, commercial loan growth, market expansion and branch optimization strategies. Tweddle will be hosting his annual “Proven Performers — Keys to Their Sustained Performance” webinar at 2 p.m. (Eastern time) Thursday, April 17.
