Fidelity National Information Services (NYSE:FIS) today announced that Bloomfield State Bank has chosen the in-house version of The HORIZON Banking System for its core processing needs.
The Bloomfield, IN-based bank, a family-owned institution established in 1873, is also a user of FIS' ImageCentre check imaging solution, CustomerLink Internet banking and FIS EFT solutions.
"Although the integration with other FIS solutions we use is a nice by- product, our decision was really made based strictly on HORIZON's attributes," said Benny McNeely, Bloomfield State Bank's chief executive officer. "In our view, the product is technically superior to the others we evaluated and will give us improved ability to navigate through the system. Many functions will be more automated, less manual, which will mean better service for our customers. Also, we are very active in residential mortgages, and HORIZON has extremely robust capabilities in this area."
Built on the principle of end-to-end integration, HORIZON offers mid-tier to large commercial banks superior financial reporting, innovative transaction processing and unsurpassed relationship management. The solution also delivers true integration with the full spectrum of FIS capabilities including check imaging, eBanking and business intelligence.
"We've spent more than a decade expanding HORIZON to participate in virtually every customer touch point experience between financial institutions and their customers," said Jim Susoreny, executive vice president for FIS' Integrated Financial Solutions division. "In fact, you could say that core processing is just a subset of what is truly a fully integrated banking solution. With the ability to further integrate with ImageCentre and CustomerLink, Bloomfield Bank will now be in a position to continue to enhance efficiencies, and further improve the world-class service they already provide their customers."
