A Bank Reinvented for the Customer

Empowering Oriental Bank

When Puerto Rico-based Oriental Bank made several acquisitions that effectively doubled its size overnight, it faced significant post-merger challenges with transforming operations, transitioning technology and tools, training staff and converting $5 billion in assets. To help the bank prepare for its bold new path, it turned to FIS to understand and better serve what was until then a largely unbanked population.
