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.”

New Pega Accelerator Helps Financial Institutions Streamline Financial Crimes Investigations

PR Newswire | October 16, 2023

Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the low-code platform provider empowering the world's leading enterprises to Build for Change®, today announced the Pega Financial Crime and Alerts Investigation Management Accelerator, a new solution that helps financial institutions manage the rising number of risk alerts and more efficiently orchestrate investigations. By leveraging Pega's proven intelligent automation and case management capabilities along with its groundbreaking generative AI-powered capabilities, financial institutions can break through operational silos and speed investigations for what is traditionally a time-intensive and manual process. Financial crimes – such as fraud, money laundering, structuring, and sanctions violations –are rapidly rising, putting increasing strain on financial institutions' risk teams to investigate each potential incident. While detection and monitoring systems have matured, financial institutions still struggle to manage the increasing volume of these alerts and investigations, which have been further exacerbated by global economic sanctions. Compounding this problem, risk teams from different departments often work in silos and use different monitoring and case management tools, making it difficult to get a consolidated picture of all risks related to each customer. This can lead to inefficient and duplicative processes, unnecessary manual work, and inconsistent outcomes. The Pega Financial Crime and Alerts Investigation Management Accelerator provides financial institutions with a unified solution to manage alerts and drive investigations for all types of risk detection systems across all departments, jurisdictions, and lines of business. The accelerator provides a holistic, transparent, and actionable view of each customer's risk profile in a single application, helping drive more collaboration for even the largest and most complex financial institutions. And with Pega's leading intelligent automation and AI, financial institutions can streamline their investigations, resulting in faster resolutions, lower costs, and better outcomes for their customers. Available today for download on Pega Marketplace, Pega Financial Crime and Alerts Investigation Management Accelerator provides any financial institution the following key features and benefits: Smarter process orchestration with case management and intelligent automation: Pega enables all types of alerts across different monitoring systems to be captured and triaged in a consistent manner so investigators can spend their time examining the case rather than gathering and managing information. The accelerator digests and enriches alerts, deduplicates redundant alerts, and merges new alerts into existing investigation cases when applicable. Cases are assigned with skill-based routing to the most appropriate risk investigator, who is guided through the right stages and steps to efficiently and accurately handle each case. Reduced time and costs with automation and AI: By using automation and AI to reduce manual labor, Pega helps drive investigations faster and more accurately. For example, the accelerator eliminates the time-consuming and cumbersome process of developing a Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) by using generative AI to analyze all data associated with a case and then automatically draft the SAR. Automation is applied throughout the process, helping staff drive more efficient and effective investigations. Increased flexibility with configurable system options: The accelerator is highly configurable, allowing financial institutions to leverage pre-built process templates out of the box and easily adjust and extend them to fit their unique needs. The accelerator can be integrated with existing alert monitoring and detection systems as well as Pega's Know Your Customer and Client Lifecycle Management solutions and other third-party systems and services. Pega's low-code platform for AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation is trusted by the majority of the world's largest financial institutions. For more than 30 years, Pega has provided global financial institutions with case management, workflow automation, and customer risk solutions across KYC, AML, alert management, fraud, account opening, and client lifecycle management. Pega supports all types of financial institutions with pre-defined industry best practices across jurisdictions and lines of business.
