ICBA Names Banker’s Dashboard a Preferred Service Provider Offering Financial Management Solution
Washington, D.C. (August 13, 2009)—The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) today announced it has selected Atlanta-based Banker’s Dashboard, a community bank management solution provider, as a Preferred Service Provider (PSP). Banker’s Dashboard provides daily, online access to a bank’s total financial picture, enabling bank CEOs and their teams to closely manage and drive performance.
“ICBA is pleased to offer its members a comprehensive financial management tool that helps community banks gain branch- and company-level information in a timely manner,” said Dan Clancy, ICBA senior vice president of services. “Banker’s Dashboard will help our members quickly identify opportunities to improve their community banks’ performance and gain efficiencies in critical financial areas.”
Banker’s Dashboard was designed by bankers, with a format that reflects the way community bankers think. Management teams at all levels can access it via the Internet from any location, giving them a fast and easy way to make the critical decisions that contribute to improved performance and profitable growth. The solution covers a number of financial management tasks, including but not limited to financial reporting and analysis, as well as asset-liability management, budgeting, forecasting and board package creation. Participating banks can have this tool up and running in as little as 72 hours, with no software installation required.
“As former community bankers ourselves, we are well aware of what a community bank needs in a management tool to stay on top of performance at all times. With that in mind, we created Banker’s Dashboard and are delighted to be working with ICBA to extend this online financial management solution to its nearly 5,000 member community banks,” said Chris Bledsoe, Banker’s Dashboard CEO and co-founder.
Some ICBA member community banks have already successfully applied Banker’s Dashboard to their daily operations and report marked improvement within their institutions.
“I start each morning with Banker’s Dashboard. It’s an invaluable management tool that helps us closely track our net interest margin and compare financial information from one day to the next. The automated board package saves significant time, allowing us to focus on analyzing our numbers and identifying areas for improvement. I would recommend Banker’s Dashboard to any community bank that is striving to achieve high performance,” said Jon Simplot, chairman and chief executive officer of Iowa State Bank and Trust Company in Fairfield, Iowa.
Banker’s Dashboard is presenting a complimentary Webinar for ICBA members at 1 p.m. (Eastern Time) Sept. 10 and 22. During this session, community bank CEOs and their management teams will have an opportunity to see Banker’s Dashboard in action. Register at www.BankersDashboard.com/ICBAwebinar.
