Nebraska-based Farm Credit Services of America chose Fiserv’s DNA core account processing platform to support its agricultural lending operations.
Randolph Savings Bank, a Massachusetts-based community bank, renewed its long-term contract with Fiserv for a host of back and front office solutions. The renewal was spurred on by the bank’s IPO.
Badlands Federal Credit Union, based in Montana, and Danville City Employees Federal Credit Union, based in Virginia, will use the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) suites. The solutions will be customised for each of them.
The action is not confined to the US. Merchant Bank of Sri Lanka (MBSL) signed for Fiserv’s Signature back office system and the Teller front-end solution.
