IBT Hosts First 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.

Pretty routine and easy to do and our customers love the product because of its ease of operations.

CEDAR PARK, TX – July 16, 2014 - IBT, Inc., a leading provider of cutting edge solutions for community financial institutions announced today that First Bank in Wadley, Alabama has converted to IBT’s Core platform. The Bank will also take advantage of its complimentary ancillary cloud solutions which will enable them to meet the specific challenges of the marketplace, efficiently and effectively across all customer facing channels.Jared B. Kirby, President/CEO of First Bank said, “At First Bank we serve rural communities. One would think that the areas of growth would be limited. Our philosophy of establishing good relationships, maintaining them and cultivating them proves that theory wrong. We believe in our customers and they in turn believe in us. Because we care we knew we needed to make some changes in order to serve them better.”Added Kirby, “We were operating with a core system that was somewhat limited. Looking to the future we knew we’d reached our maximum with the core system we were using. In order to grow and keep up with technological changes we chose IBT’s core system which allows us to do what we do best. We are excited about what the IBT conversion will allow us to do, we recognize already the advantages. We spent a lot of time assembling information before but it was too cumbersome to access. Now, not only can we access information quickly we can also analyze it which allows us to provide efficient, real time customer service.” “Client’s like First Bank are focused on customer care as are we. As we assist with First Bank’s transition to new and improved cloud technology across all channels we take into consideration that a massive undertaking such as core conversion can be a bit intimidating. We walk our clients through step by step to insure proper training and support.
