IBT, a leading innovator of best-of-breed solutions of cost-effective, enterprise-wide technology for financial institutions announced today a new partnership with Banking Data Services, Inc. (BDS).
BDS, a data processing company in Alma, GA, processes for 10 community banks installing IBT's i(2) OLB (online banking) and i(2) Mobile.
Established in 1993 BDS is a non-bank subsidiary of South Banking Company whose purpose is to service the data processing needs of the banks within the holding company. "Initially we were working with Beacon Software until it was acquired by IBT," stated Executive Vice President, Rickey Corbitt. "The migration to IBT from Beacon was seamless, they have a very talented team and enhanced the product in ways we didn't expect but really appreciate. We predict that all of our banks will convert to the IBT system in the near future. Our banks that use i(2) OLB now have found that their customers are signing up for online banking whereas they weren't using it before. The user friendly nature of the IBT products takes the fear and apprehension away from using it. It has been a good relationship, I like the way it is priced and the support has been great. We couldn't be happier. "
Mark Dittman, President of IBT, notes, "As a cutting-edge technological company, our goal is to enhance and modernize all of our products. Keeping current in today's constantly changing environment is part of 'The IBT Difference' and it is what provides our customers the ability to offer affordable state-of-the-art products to their client base. For example, BDS uses our online banking which is capable of supporting the iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Kindle and iPad. Any actual mobile device our system can automatically reformat itself to handle the consumers device. We value this new partnership with BDS, they are knowledgeable and understand technology and the benefits of using it correctly. We look forward to a long working relationship with them."
