Keynote Addresses Strategies to Confront Industry Disruptions and Major
D+H Investments in People, Datacenter Infrastructure and its Solution
LAKE MARY, FL, Sept. 1, 2015 /CNW/ - DH Corporation ("D+H") (TSX: DH), a
leading provider of technology solutions to domestic and global
financial institutions, today announced more than 1,600 leaders from
financial institutions, alliance partners, consulting firms and
financial media have gathered with its own leadership at this year's
D+H Connections conference in San Diego. Revealed in a keynote address
led by D+H executives were strategies to confront industry disruptions
- such as Millennial and consumer banking expectations, marketplace
lenders and financial regulations - and announcements about D+H's
recent investments in people, datacenter infrastructure and its
D+H CEO Gerrard Schmid kicked off the conference by discussing the
impact of innovation on the financial services sector. "Take driverless
cars as an example," said Schmid. "Billions of dollars are being spent
to develop autonomous vehicles. Goldman Sachs predicts 2017 to be a
watershed year for autonomous car technology, and they expect this
movement to be led by Google, not an automaker. This trend has
important long-term consequences for any financial institution engaged
in auto lending. Will people even own cars or simply order one
on-demand via an app? And who will they turn to for their auto loans?"
he questioned. Schmid reminded clients that innovation and new
technologies are shifting consumer expectations and driving demands for
new standards of convenience. "This is why we see more of our clients
focused on the customer journey, building loyalty and leveraging
technology to do what's right for their customers or members."
The D+H leadership team went on to explain the company's strategy to
help their clients grow and compete effectively in a world of
continuing change and innovation. "We've promised our clients product
innovation because that's what banks, credit unions and governments
have trusted us to deliver for 140 years," said Sanjiv Waghmare, chief
product officer of D+H's U.S. Lending and Integrated Core Solutions
business. "But most importantly, we've promised solutions that enable
our clients to deliver the best experiences to the people who matter
most - their customers."
Over the past 12 months, D+H has made significant investments to
strengthen and expand its product portfolio. The company's increased
capital spend on product enhancements and additions has already
resulted in two new products, Consumerbot™ and Mobile Banking App, introduced earlier this year, with Depositbot™ scheduled for later this year; 40 new integrations between D+H
solutions and with strategic partner products; and estimates of more
than 10,000 hours per month dedicated towards compliance work. Further,
D+H has partnered with industry leading organizations like Malauzai
Software, Inc. to expand its channel delivery solutions; CUNA Mutual
Group to enhance its mortgage offering; and acquired Fundtech, a global
leader in payment and transaction banking solutions.
"As a trusted FinTech provider to nearly 8,000 financial institutions,
we must continue evolving to deliver on our simple mission to 'Help
clients grow. Every day'," said Bill Neville, president of D+H's U.S.
Lending and Integrated Core Solutions business. "Our clients
increasingly depend on us to meet their customers' expectations for
simplicity, convenience and consistency. As just one example, clients
rely on D+H to process more than 113,500 mortgage applications, 136
million Internet banking transactions and almost half a million bank
statements for their customers - in just one month. We take that
commitment to clients and their customers very seriously. That's why we
continue to invest in our products and partnerships. It's why we've
doubled down on our information security, compute and networking
platforms. And, it's why D+H hired more than 650 people globally from
the market's most innovative companies in the last year. We're excited
that Connections presents an opportunity to share the results of this
progress, and our continued efforts, with clients."
