CBANC, the largest online community for banking and credit union professionals, recently launched a comprehensive platform that features an online marketplace of products and solutions for financial institutions.

The new marketplace enables information and data for 1,000 products from more than 450 companies that provide innovative solutions and services to banks and credit unions. With this, the new marketplace also provides the industry with the most up-to-date, comprehensive catalogue of products and services powered by the companies that serve as U.S based financial institutions. With this launch, CBANC aims to build a successful online community of verified financial professionals from over 8,600 U.S. financial institutions.

Over the past ten years, CBANC has been a place for all financial professionals to connect and discover the information they need to succeed. Today, the speed of technological innovation is outpacing awareness, and community banks and credit unions need a place to discover what's available for them and feel confident in their decisions."

Tom Ferries, CBANC CEO.

The CBANC Marketplace also enables vendors to get their products and services rapidly and offer them to banking and credit union professionals. With the help of this new marketplace platform, financial companies will have the ability to add, share, and update information related to financial services and products. By doing this, companies can add value and insight about services and products to their audience who are actively looking for support and guidance from the vendors.

The CBANC Community and Marketplace is a simple platform for each employee of U.S. financial institutions and members to overcome circumstantial vulnerabilities such as online fraud, essential fiscal credentials, insecure email networks, and many other dysfunctional aspects.

“As the need for technology change and acceleration continues, the industry is looking for a place that’s a real resource,” said Michael Berman, Ncontracts CEO. “An informed buyer is typically a better buyer because they really understand all of their options in the marketplace, so we are excited to participate.”
