First National Bank Modernizes with IBT's Core System and Total Solution Suite
CEDAR PARK, TX - January 28, 2015 - IBT, Inc., a leading provider of cutting edge banking applications, announced today that First National Bank (FNB) of Eagle Lake, Texas has signed with IBT to replace its core platform. FNB will take advantage of IBT's fully integrated customer facing cloud solution, i2Suite. This new technology will enable The Bank to meet the specific challenges of the marketplace efficiently and effectively while providing maximum convenience across all channels.Sam Kana, President and CEO of First National Bank, commented that he first became familiar with IBT through advertisements and decided to contact them for a demo. "The idea that IBT was local and the owners were very hands on was appealing to me. Prior to doing business with IBT, FNB had been dealing with a large worldwide core processing system company and getting poor service. We had a contract that included a 15 year no escape clause which they took advantage of by offering poor customer service, if any at all. The product was a patchwork of different interfaces that didn't talk to each other. We knew we needed to make a change because the demographics of our community were changing.""Our current client base is blended. Historically our customers have been rural, without much demand for technology. When I got here in 2004 we'd been on internet banking seven years and we only had seven customers that used it. Now people are moving into the area from suburban and urban parts of the state and that has created a strong demand for convenience and easy to use technology for our mobile and online users. We knew we needed a better solution to be a more effective and viable organization in our community; starting with a more advanced and progressive core banking system. IBT's core product is going to help us be more responsive to our customers' needs and offers us the capability to expand and grow as we move forward into the future. Meeting the needs of our burgeoning clientele is important; it keeps us current and relevant but it doesn't require that we ignore the needs of those who prefer to come to our branch for services." Kana said. "We provide the highest level of personalized service and care to our customers. Our software engineers, implementation, training and support teams exemplify The IBT Difference with their industry knowledge and enthusiastic support for IBT's clients. By helping them transition to new and improved cloud technology, The First National Bank of Eagle Lake can consecutively accommodate two distinctly different clientele successfully." stated Mike Golebiowski, president of IBT.About First National Bank The First National Bank, organized in 1904, is an independent community bank owned by Eagle Lake Bancshares, Inc. which in turn is owned by approximately seventy shareholders, most of whom are local residents.

IBT Hosts Annual Users Conference in Texas
CEDAR PARK, TX - November 19, 2014 - IBT, Inc., a leading provider of cutting edge solutions for community financial institutions announced today the overwhelming success of its inaugural annual user's conference in Texas October 12-14 of this year.CEO Mark Dittman set the tone for the conference with an opening address that captured the spirit of "The IBT Difference" and IBT's commitment to product scalability and robust retail and business banking. The two day agenda included topics such as CEO to CEO discussions, industry roundtable, Compliance, Disaster recovery and a glimpse into the future of i2Suite product development. Community banks gathered from around the country expressing enthusiasm and enjoying the camaraderie of meeting one another and IBT teams.Brenda Strunk, Chief Operations Officer from Farmers State Bank in Ohio said "As a user it was very beneficial to be able to talk to the people behind the scenes and to hear the direction that IBT is going. Software is not about something you use; it's about a partnership with the company that you are using it from. We believe we are in partnership with IBT. The biggest take away - the relationships that we built. Not just with IBT staff but with other users".Additionally, Aaron Kness President and CEO from Iowa State Bank & Trust felt the conference was a good experience and worth the time and effort. "Interacting with other users was very valuable, and the range and diversity of users was encouraging. The conference allowed us to interact with both people who were just beginning a relationship with IBT and those who have been with them for 15 years, which was definitely informative. Management and staff did a great job of making the conference a world class event. You'd never have guessed that it was their first one."Bank of Mauston's CFO and Cashier JoAnn Johnson wished that she and her colleague could have had more representatives from her bank attend. "I wish I could have attended all sessions myself because there was so much good information to gather. It is always good to talk to other users. I liked sharing our ideas the most. Having IBT ask us what we wanted was great.""We believe that the personalization of this conference format provided an atmosphere for our customers to benefit in getting to know each other and exchange ideas. The goal is to get our users to eventually become the drivers of product development and be the driving force behind the product, stated Mike Golebiowski, President of IBT.
