Helping you help your community.

Business in an unusual time

It’s not business as usual. As an essential service, community banks and credit unions are uniquely positioned to provide personalized and empathetic services in an uncertain time.

As your community turns to you, we want to help make things a little easier.

​We have compiled useful tools, tips, and ideas to help you shape the future. As always, we have you (virtually) covered.

How community banks and credit unions can support customers and members during the pandemic

Discover the tools you already have to assist
account holders and borrowers


Sometimes it takes a crisis to realize your potential...


"...the financial services industry has shown that to be true throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to date. Banks and credit unions have largely risen to the challenge and continue to serve their communities’ financial needs. But we are facing a very different future, and financial institutions must continue to adapt."

– Chris Zingo, SVP and GM of Americas Field Operations





Prevailing in an industry forever changed

In this two-part series, discover how community banks and credit unions must adapt to prevail in an industry forever changed.

Join Microsoft’s Tom Feher, Cornerstone Advisors’ Sam Kilmer, and Finastra’s John Weinkowitz, as they discuss how current events have shaped the future of Retail banking, and how community banks and credit unions now must rethink how they approach business.


Part 1: The new banking nerve center and focus on financial health

Panelists discuss how COVID has forced a change in the industry, redefined the banking nerve center, and how “financial health” is the way to move forward in servicing account holders.

Part 2: Overnight transformation and the impact on cloud and core

We talk about what transformation looks like now, and how cloud adaptation of systems has been accelerated. With this change, an understanding of the advantages of the cloud for functioning in the new world is mandatory, and transformation to the cloud, the norm.
