(I/O) Birmingham, AL."We are very pleased by the amount of growth we have experienced in the past year, particularly with de novos," said David Brasfield, president and CEO of Brasfield Technology.
...We really do not think there is a big difference in technology providers and as in our business [banking] it is about the people not the products, so we chose Brasfield, as we hope people will choose SouthPoint for the same reasons, once we are open for business," he said.
Bank chose to partner with Brasfield
because of the quality people we encountered there.Brasfield's
products and services are impressive but the commitment to customer service from the people behind those products and services impresses us the most."Brasfield
added, "I think that de novos and established institutions alike find Brasfield
to be an attractive solution because of the excellent team we have assembled and the extras that we bring to the table such as continuing education and complimentary marketing services."
