Fresno First Bank Expands Relationship with CSI through New Core Platform Integration

Share:

In order to expand its reach as a single-branch institution,
California-based Fresno First Bank has selected Computer
Services, Inc.
(CSI) (OTCQX:CSVI), a provider of end-to-end
financial technology solutions, as its new core provider, adding to
their use of CSI's managed services.

With its conversion to CSI's NuPoint® core
processing
solution, Fresno First aims to offer a more consistent
banking experience for its customers across California, regardless of
their distance from the bank's home branch. The bank plans to leverage a
wide range of CSI's fintech services, including remote deposit capture,
payments and CSI CRM. Additionally, Fresno First Bank executives
specifically pointed to CSI's collaborative, high-touch approach to
working with their customers as a key selling point in their decision,
while also citing NuPoint's innovative technology and flexibility as key
benefits for the bank and its customers.

"Our goal with the implementation of a new core platform is to ensure
that our customers are experiencing the same high levels of service
whether they are 3 miles or 3,000 miles from our branch," said Steve
Miller, president and CEO of Fresno First Bank. "We were already working
with CSI for our internal IT
systems management
, so we knew they could provide the advanced level
of technology necessary to reach these goals and provide our customers
with the support and functionality they need both today and well into
the future."

CSI's NuPoint is a cloud-based core
banking system
that enhances branch performance, employee
productivity and customer profitability. By leveraging CSI's secure
infrastructure and integration capabilities, Fresno First will have the
ability to not only deploy more relevant customer-facing banking
solutions, but also move toward creating further opportunities for the
bank to expand its footprint as a result of new efficiencies and greater
functionality.

"At CSI, we work diligently to provide integrated solutions that offer a
seamless, truly relevant customer experience that our banks can utilize
to its highest potential as they seek to grow their businesses and
compete with service providers across all industries," said Steve
Powless, CSI's chairman and CEO. "We are thrilled to expand our
relationship with Fresno First Bank and look forward to helping them
achieve their on-going business goals as a trusted fintech partner."
