Albemarle Bank & Trust, a division of West Town Savings Bank, has selected the Premier bank platform from Fiserv.

Fiserv claims that its Premier bank platform will accommodate Albemarle’s plans to become a full-service community bank when it opens as a brick-and-mortar bank in North Carolina later this year. The organization’s lending operations are already underway.

Melissa Marsal, executive vice president and chief operations officer for Albemarle Bank, said: “We chose Premier because it is an all-in-one, user friendly solution that gives us the functionality we need.

“Fiserv helps us deliver products and services that differentiate our organization from larger national and regional competitors. And it couldn’t have worked out better that West Town was already a Premier client.

“Even though we’re a relatively small bank, a robust technology plan ensures that we can offer what the big guys do.”
