Client Story

Turning the Corner with Automated Compliance

Empowering Centennial Bank

In 2008, Centennial Bank was a $1.5 billion community bank with amazing growth prospects, but it was being held back by its manual BSA/AML compliance processes that were tedious, inefficient and incomplete. FIS helped transition the bank to a modern, enterprise-wide system that automated onboarding and risk-rating of customers, automated regulatory report filing with batch processes for currency transaction and suspicious activity reports, and improved the bank’s ability to detect and report suspicious activity.
