Fiserv has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Atlanta-based Online Banking Solutions, Inc. (OBS). Through this acquisition, Fiserv will gain additional cash management and digital business banking capabilities, which complement and enrich its existing solutions.
“Financial institutions are increasingly focused on deepening relationships with commercial customers,” said Jeffery Yabuki, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fiserv. “The addition of Online Banking Solutions’ technologies further enables Fiserv clients to provide greater value to their commercial customers through sophisticated cash management solutions when and where they need them.”
OBS offers a modern cash management platform with the user experience and functionality that sophisticated business users expect. Its cash management capabilities are designed for digital channels, have easy-to-use interfaces and enable notification and authentication via smartphones, tablets and wearable devices. A single platform facilitates a unified experience across multiple devices, while integrated security and analytics offer enhanced fraud prevention. In addition to cash management, OBS provides a secure browser that functions as a secure, convenient gateway to applications provided by financial institutions to their commercial customers.
OBS received the “Up-And-Comer Award” in the Aite Group U.S. Cash Management Vendor Evaluation 2016.
OBS products are currently integrated across a number of Fiserv solutions and with other core processing platforms. OBS product integration is currently available across Fiserv core account processing platforms such as Signature®, Premier® and Cleartouch®, and post-closing will include DNA®.
“Our relationship with Fiserv is already established through our activities with several mutual clients,” said Dan Myers, CEO, Online Banking Solutions. “Joining Fiserv allows us to create new opportunities for our associates and to broaden the reach of our leading solutions to more banks and credit unions, ultimately enabling them to better serve their commercial customers.”
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close before the end of 2016. Financial terms have not been disclosed.
