Alkami Technology Announces Highly Anticipated Release of Next Generation Online Banking Solution with Integrated Mobile Banking

OKLAHOMA CITY, June 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alkami Technology, a provider of online banking software and solutions, today announced the launch of the Online Relationship Builder (ORB), their next generation online banking solution. Alkami will be demonstrating their solution in booth 101 at America's Credit Union Conference 2011, being held June 19 - 21 in San Antonio, TX.
ORB was designed to address the product gaps in the market today and is much more than a modern replacement for online banking. ORB supports Retail, Business and Mobile banking on a single, unified platform. It also integrates smart, social media brand-building, as well as strategic marketing tools throughout the system. ORB is a financial hub designed to be a destination that users can visit frequently for more than just accounts visibility, transfers, and bill pay functions - but also to use the system as an informative resource library.
For the financial institution, the Alkami software delivers unprecedented extensibility. Capable of endless add-on services and products, the system can be easily managed to accept new products indefinitely without sacrificing continuity. Each financial institution can modify the user interface layer, utilizing Alkami's development kits, to create a unique user experience for their customers and members.
"The system has supreme functionality, and we put enormous effort into the design, but we know there will be products and services in the future we haven't even thought of yet. That is why we placed such a focus on adaptability and extensibility," said Alkami President, Stephen Bohanon.
The ORB Platform also removes the difficulty of supporting the multiple browsers, desktop operating systems and smartphones that exist today. Portability was a major priority for Alkami during the development phase. "Apps are really raising the level of expectations for user experience. However, supporting all the different software and device platforms can be a daunting task since it is a constantly moving target," said Bohanon. "Our solution provides the user with the elegant, interactive feel of apps without all the headache of supporting them." The Alkami user interface was developed using industry-standard browser technology without the need for any plugins or other downloadable software. Whether a user is on their desktop, tablet device or smartphone, only a browser is necessary.
Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools and social media integration are also hot topics for financial institutions. Instead of increasing the number of disparate systems to provide this functionality, Alkami chose to create a completely holistic solution "under one roof." Built-in PFM tools provide a seamless user experience that is easier to learn and faster to adopt.
Alkami has also integrated a state-of-the-art Intelligent Content Delivery engine within the ORB Platform that tracks each user's behavior, demographics, preferences and overall relationship to the financial institution. The content service is automated, secure, and requires little human interaction. Once the content is entered and configured, it runs "lights off," marketing for the financial institution 24 hours a day.
"Instead of the notion of online banking as a self-service, transactional kiosk, we believe it should proactively build stronger relationships with customers and members. Our focus was to provide a solution that delivered value to both the financial institution and the end user," said Bohanon. "The response we have received from the market has been nothing short of fantastic. We are excited to deliver what is truly the next generation of online banking."
