Apiture Recognized for Most Effective Bank-FinTech Partnership by IBS Intelligence Global FinTech Innovation Awards

Award marks third consecutive win for Apiture for digital banking innovation

Wilmington, NC / November 29, 2023 / Apiture, a leading provider of digital banking solutions, has been honored for Most Effective Bank-FinTech Partnership by the IBS Intelligence Global FinTech Innovation Awards 2023. The awards program celebrates outstanding achievements in banking technology implementations and innovations. This year marks the third consecutive year Apiture has been named a winner of a Global FinTech Innovation Award. IBS Intelligence received more than 250 nominations from 49 countries for the 2023 program.

Apiture earned the distinction for spearheading a digital banking transformation initiative with First Reliance Bank, which serves 18,000 customers throughout the Carolinas. After First Reliance implemented the Apiture Digital Banking Platform to overcome its mobile and online banking constraints, the upgraded Apiture Business Banking solution helped the financial institution attract larger business customers, driving notable revenue growth.

“We thank IBSi for honoring us again this year. We continue to elevate our feature-rich Business Banking solution and are proud of the results First Reliance has achieved using our technology,” said Chris Babcock, CEO, Apiture. “This recognition reinforces our commitment to driving digital banking innovation and empowering the growth of our community and regional financial institution clients.”

The award caps a successful year for Apiture, which was recently named Gold Winner for Embedded Finance Innovation in Juniper Research Future Digital Awards. The company was also recognized as the Fintech/Insurtech of the Year in the 2023 NC TECH Awards.
