FIS™ (NYSE: FIS), the world's largest provider of banking and payments technology, today announced that CoreFirst Bank & Trust has deployed FIS' debit card processing and card personalization services.
CoreFirst Bank & Trust has assets of more than $1 billion and operates 36 branches in Kansas and Colorado. Founded in 1959, CoreFirst Bank & Trust was the first bank in its area to provide automated checking, ATMs with 24-hour access and extended banking hours. The bank previously used an in-house solution. Deploying FIS' card processing services enables CoreFirst Bank & Trust to manage its debit card processes in real-time, allowing the bank to process files as they are received. By eliminating the need to manually track and log incoming files, CoreFirst Bank & Trust can create operational efficiencies, providing more time to focus on customer service.
FIS' card processing services supports debit, credit and prepaid card-based transactions, providing the necessary messaging and integration with payments industry compliance schemes. Based on flexible technology, FIS' card processing services are built on modern, open architecture to ensure long-term scalability, availability and performance and support more than 3,500 card issuers and acquirers.
"With expectations high, our conversion went better than expected," said Steve Huff, senior vice president of Information Technology. "FIS worked with us to avoid a 'big-bang' conversion and migrated our ATMs and debit card processing at different times. Their flexibility helped reduce the risk inherent in any conversion, and their knowledgeable resources were ready and available 24/7."
"FIS is on the forefront of the card processing space," said Frank D'Angelo, executive vice president, FIS Payment Solutions Group. "Globally, FIS supports more than 125 million debit cards. In deploying FIS' card processing services, CoreFirst Bank & Trust has ensured that it has the tools necessary to deliver top-notch customer service - as well as to grow and launch new programs in order to continue to meet the ever-changing demands of its customers."
