- Terafina Inc,
an omnichannel sales platform for community banks and credit unions, is announcing today the launch of its newest solution to fast track small business onboarding at PlainsCapital Bank.
Terafina’s rapidly growing client base continues to innovative in a fast-changing competitive digital landscape.
In a 2017 small business study released by Raddon
as highlighted in this Financial Brand article
, “51% of [small business] respondents that currently did not use a community institution for their primary or secondary institution were ‘extremely’ or ‘very likely’ to consider using one in the future.” If community banks and credit unions do not move quickly to engage with SMBs digitally, they risk losing out on huge opportunities to competitively serve small businesses in a meaningful, scalable, and sustainable way.
In addition, the study shows that “25% [of respondents] indicated they would not use a community bank because their current institution (likely a major bank) offered a better business product menu.” PlainsCapital Bank, based in Dallas, TX with $9.7B in total assets, understands the importance of diversifying its offerings and has taken considerable steps with Terafina’s newest fast track solution for small business onboarding to acquire and retain small business customers while removing friction from the overall onboarding experience. Ashwin Goyal, President & COO
of Terafina, stated that “PlainsCapital is making all the right strategic moves as it continues to grow and better define its product offerings. They are designing a compelling small business banking strategy that helps them stand out from others, while taking full advantage of the overlap with their existing retail capabilities and leveraging their trusted community footprint throughout Texas.”
PlainsCapital Bank has already begun to experience the added benefits of this new solution that reduces friction and unifies the experience. Matt Adkins, Chief of Retail Banking Services for PlainsCapital, affirmed that “we have been able to significantly improve the onboarding experience while penetrating the retail segment with small business products. This unique capability has added great value to our customers' experience.”
Terafina is excited to be selected to present a live demo
this week at Digital Banking on Thursday, June 20th in Austin, TX
where we will showcase our newest fast track small business offering. We hope to see you there.
