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.
By empowering a largely unbanked population with mobile banking options they can use anytime, anywhere, including rural and remote areas, Oriental transformed the banking experience and became Puerto Rico’s most customer-centric bank.
