The graduating class of 2019 is full of savvy, Gen Z graduates ready to start the next chapter of their lives. Is your branch and staff ready to be their financial advisor? If you spend a lot of time thinking and researching how to attract this generation to your branch or branch network, you are not alone. That means that a lot of your competitors are also trying to grab the attention of this market. You need to find ways to stand out.

Integrating your automation with your core is no longer something that can stay on your wish list—it has become a critical element of branch transformation that must be in place before your branch can effectively move into the future.

Known as the Banker's Playground, this is an interactive showroom with the latest design build, digital signage, and banking technologies where executives start their journey toward branch and headquarter transformation.

We are so proud to announce that one of our leading and most critical products, NORM (Network Optimization and Redundancy Module), has been issued a patent. NORM is a one-of-a-kind product that connects any type of cash automation machine to a financial institutions' network without the fear of system failure.
