Sterling Bank Expands Its Digital Capabilities Through Retail And Business Digital Solutions From FIS

Engaging customers on their own terms is the future of banking, and Spokane, Wash., based Sterling Bank, the principal operating subsidiary of Sterling Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:STSA), is meeting those needs with the help of FIS™ (NYSE:FIS). FIS, the world’s largest provider of banking and payments technology, today announced that the $9.94 billion bank signed a multi-year agreement to deploy FIS’ Business eBanking and Mobile Banking solutions – creating new and easier ways for customers to manage their money, while also supporting the bank’s plans for growth.

“Sterling Bank was looking for new ways to interact with its customers outside the branch,” said Anthony Jabbour, EVP, North American Financial Institutions, FIS. “These solutions will give Sterling’s business and consumer customers the opportunity to bank when and where they want, safely and securely.”

FIS will help Sterling Bank to take full advantage of the growth in business and consumer use of digital solutions through the use of FIS’ market-leading, integrated digital solution suite, which encompasses online, tablet and mobile.

This deployment follows another recent Internet banking expansion for Sterling Bank whereby it converted its business customers to FIS’ business internet banking platform. Sterling Bank also will introduce FIS’ mobile platform to customers by the end of 2013, with high expectations for broad use in the near term and strong growth for the long term.

“As mobile devices become more advanced, people want quick access to their accounts without having to sit at a desktop,” said Patricia Baughman, Sterling Bank’s SVP and director of Corporate Product Management/Market Research. “It’s about meeting our customers where they want to be met. We’re pleased to deliver FIS’ tested and reliable digital and mobile capabilities to our customers to better serve their needs.”

Offering the most robust set of mobile capabilities available, FIS continues to build its lead in the mobile banking market by providing strategic solutions to more than 20 million mobile users and over three million mobile deposit customers. FIS added to its abilities earlier this year by acquiring mFoundry, a foremost provider of mobile banking and payment solutions, and rapidly increased the rate of innovation delivery within its mobile business. FIS also earned the 2013 BAI Payments Innovation Award.
