Wintrust Financial Corporation picks NCR tech

Wintrust Financial Corporation has selected NCR to revamp its digital and branch channels across 180 locations in the US.

Wintrust wanted to enable new digital services for customers

The firm, a $43 billion bank holding company, operates 15 branded community bank subsidiaries. It’s deploying NCR’s Channel Services, Digital First Banking, and D3 Digital Banking solutions.

“We have chosen NCR to partner with to maintain our commitment to our customers to deliver the latest digital capabilities in the marketplace, says Tom Ormseth, executive vice president of digital channels at Wintrust.

“Clients come first and increasingly our digital services are a key part of delivering our exceptional service to our customers.”

Wintrust’s business strategy is to retain the identities of the community banks it acquires rather than rebranding them. Each community bank uses the tagline, “A Wintrust Community Bank”.

Douglas Brown, president of digital banking at NCR Corporation, says: “Wintrust’s investment in digital-first banking positions them for success in the increasingly challenging financial services landscape.

“To win in the hyper-competitive banking landscape today, it requires both a differentiated technology capability and a leadership mindset.”
