Peoples Trust Company Picks Finastra for Commercial and Consumer Lending

Peoples Trust Company of Saint Albans, Vermont has picked Finastra’s Total Lending solution to better manage its commercial and consumer lending processes. The solution includes Finastra’s Fusion LaserPro, Fusion DecisionPro, and Fusion CreditQuest products, and will help Peoples Trust Company increase efficiency and improve the customer experience from origination through booking. Integrated into the bank’s core system, Finastra’s technology will speed the lending process for borrowers and give the bank improved compliance and risk management.

“Finastra’s suite of integrated lending products provides a comprehensive and flexible platform that spans the entire lending workflow, from start to finish,” Finastra CEO Nadeem Syed explained. “By automating once manual processes and cutting out complexity, the Peoples Trust Company will be able to offer an improved experience to their borrowers and focus greater attention on what matters: building deeper customer relationships.”

Angela M. Poirier, CRCM SVP, Chief Loan Specialist for Peoples Trust Company emphasized customer engagement in her statement as well, noting that a service that kept customer needs front and center was key to the decision to choose Finastra. “When it came to replacing our current lending platform, we knew we needed a partner that could also deliver on that promise,” Poirier said.

Formed last year as the result of a merger between Misys and D+H, Finastra is one of the largest financial services technology companies in the world with more than 10,000 employees and more than 9,000 customers in 130 countries. With more than $2 billion in revenues, Finastra is headquartered in London, and is partnered with 48 of the top 50 global banks.

Earlier this month, Finastra announced that the Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade for Vietnam (Vietcombank) had selected its technology to drive its digital transformation. In February, the company unveiled its tailored Fusion Treasury solution for Russia and the CIS, and announced that South Africa’s Absa Bank would go live with its CLS platform, PAYplus. Finastra began 2018 with the acquisition of FX e-trading platform, Olfa Soft SA, and the launch of the Future of Banking Center of Excellence at Cyberport in Hong Kong.

Prior to forming Finastra, Misys demonstrated its FusionFabric.cloud development environment at FinovateEurope 2017. The company has since welcomed a number of early adopters to its open architecture ecosystem including APAC-based InfoTrie, HedgeSPA, and Paretix. The company’s FusionFabric.cloud received a technological boost from Microsoft earlier this month, when the Redmond, WA software company announced that its cloud platform, Microsoft Azure, will underpin Finastra’s solution.
