Second Annual IBT Users Conference Exceeds Attendance and Expectations

CEDAR PARK, TX - November 23, 2015 - IBT, Inc., A leading financial services firm and powerful SaaS core processing and data management solutions provider, announced today the overwhelming success of its 2nd annual user's conference in Austin, Texas October 11­-13 of this year. Community banks gathered from around the country, expressing enthusiasm and enjoying the camaraderie of meeting one another and the IBT team.

"IBT's theme this year was Moving Forward Together, which couldn't be more appropriate. Big box banks and big box vendors are no longer built to service the communities or community institutions they built themselves upon. IBT and its partner banks are both built on service to our communities, which begin with respect and our staff's commitment to excellence. Our teams take pride in themselves and their work, the result is superior customer service. When we enter into a partnership we are committed to transparency throughout the relationship. IBT is focused on keeping an open dialogue with our partner banks while delivering a portal that our bank partners can use to communicate with each other. This transparency provides our partners' insights into IBT, while also letting our bank partners' direct innovation that can impact them in a positive way. Ultimately our conference makes us all better at what we do," stated Mark Dittman, CEO, IBT.

Held at the The Westin Austin at The Domain in Austin, Texas, attendance for the second annual users conference doubled from the previous year. A focus on security, bank to bank communication as well as i2Suite, IBT's guests were provided with a wealth of information to take back to their communities for implementation.

Cameron Coody, IT Director for the Bank of Madison in Madison, GA went to the conference last year and stated "I liked this year's user conference better. The sessions were more informative and there was more time allotted between each session for networking. Learning more about IBT was very informative. Anytime you are given insight into the direction of a company - that is always welcome information. I'm looking forward to seeing what they are going to do next year - this has become my favorite conference of the year."

Geoff Freeman, Vice President/Operations at Peoples Independent Bank in Boaz, AL was unable to attend the conference last year and was encouraged by team members who did attend and recommended that he participate this year. He mentioned, "the sessions were very informative and the opportunity to interact with other bankers to discuss best practices was valuable. We picked up a lot of information from them in addition to the sessions I attended. The pace of the weekend was perfect - plenty to do without being overwhelming. I'd say my favorite topic was security because it is constantly changing and I believe that IBT is committed to keeping our banks secure."

This was the first year for Citizens State Bank of Lankin, ND. "We just converted in July so we are new to IBT," said Christine Grove, IT Lead. "I thought it was very well organized; the IBT staff was welcoming and friendly, and the break-out sessions were great. My favorite part of the conference was the panel discussion; because we weren't just spoken to but were able to participate by asking questions and giving feedback. It was well worth the time."

"IBT is an innovative company with a vision we share with our clients. We have this conference every year because through our partnership with our customers we want them to be competitive in their respective marketplaces regardless of the IBT product they use. Be it core or online banking 'The IBT Difference' is making sure we all get there successfully together," said IBT's President Mike Golebiowski.
