Sterling Savings Bank has signed an extensive agreement for Fidelity National Information Services' (FIS) outsourced core processing solution Integrated Banking Services (IBS), that includes a suite of additional technology products.

FIS claims that its IBS platform features open architecture and advanced technology that involves minimal risk and disruption to business operations and customers.

As part of the IBS deployment, FIS will also deliver ACH, CRM, eBanking and risk, fraud and compliance products.

Sterling Savings Bank, based in Spokane, Washington, already used ePayment and image products from FIS before deciding to extend the relationship to include IBS and a host of other solutions.

Cindy Parker, senior vice president, IT executive at Sterling Savings Bank, said: “We selected FIS’ IBS core platform because it is a comprehensive solution that, combined with additional FIS products, provides automation, intuitive workflows, relationship banking, simplified and faster on-boarding and support for our sales driven culture.

“After conducting a detailed core evaluation process, we determined that FIS was the right strategic technology partner to support the bank’s corporate growth goals and help to increase profitability.”
