Alabama-based Southern Independent Bank is to deploy Premier banking platform and other range of solutions developed by Fiserv.

The Premier bank platform features a user-friendly loan application that allows the bank to process and manage every type of loan in its large commercial and retail lending portfolio.

Southern Independent will also benefit from Fiserv’s loan origination system, EasyLender, which is already integrated with Premier.

Additionally, the bank will also use several self-service customer-facing digital products and services from Fiserv, including Accel payments network, Branch Source Capture for check capture, and Business Analytics for enterprise-wide reporting functionality.

Other services are Business Process Manager for new account and process management, Card Services Debit Processing, CheckFree RXP for bill payment and presentment, Director for electronic content management and Fiserv Clearing Network for image exchange.

Southern Independent Bank senior vice president Brett Ballard said the bank continually seeks ways to increase efficiency and streamline operations.

"We feel the product mix and superior customer service offered by Fiserv are a good fit for our organization, and our staff especially looks forward to enhanced capabilities in our loan system, reporting functions and digital offerings," Ballard added.

Fiserv bank solutions division president Teri Carstensen said, "From lending solutions to digital innovations, Southern Independent Bank is now strategically positioned for continued growth."
