Bremer Bank aims to revamp digital banking with Backbase
Minnesota-based Bremer Bank is switching up its digital banking operations with Backbase and its Digital-First Banking Platform.
Bremer Bank is a privately held, $13 billion regional financial services company, which provides corporate and retail banking as well as wealth management, to communities across Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.
Jeanne Crain, Bremer Bank president and CEO, says that Bremer Bank is focused on “investing in digital capabilities that help us meet our customers where they are, when they need us, and with value.”
She adds: “We are excited to partner with Backbase to provide the tools that make a real-world difference in our customers’ lives, and that help them to succeed and grow.”
Backbase claims that once the implementation is complete that Bremer will have “the flexibility and control to deliver innovative and tailored digital experiences to its customers.”
Jouk Pleiter, Backbase CEO, says that his firm is looking forward to working with the bank to deliver “the future-state architecture that will allow Bremer to continue delivering real value where it matters.”
Pleiter spoke to FinTech Futures last year about facing its biggest challenge – it’s existing customers – and getting them to commit to a digital transformation.
“Are these guys going to really make the change or are we entering into a massive classic IT project?” he asked at the time.
At the same event the vendor demonstrated how it could be possible to build a mobile bank in 47 minutes.
