Mechanics & Farmers Bank Using nCino's Cloud Banking Platform to Effectively Deliver on its Mission to Empower Diverse Communities
Wilmington, N.C., Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- nCino, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCNO), a pioneer in cloud banking for the global financial services industry, today announced that Mechanics and Farmers Bank (M&F), the second-oldest African American owned bank in the United States, is live on the nCino Cloud Banking Platform. The technology upgrade is helping M&F process loans more quickly and creating increased convenience and connectivity for the underserved markets it intentionally serves.
For 116 years, M&F Bank has been focused on a critical mission; providing access to capital to diverse communities. As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), M&F must serve one or more target markets by designating at least 60 percent of financing activities to one or more low- and moderate-income or underserved communities. Through the partnership with nCino and implementation of its Commercial Banking and Automated Spreading Solutions, M&F can more quickly complete the loan process, while driving a better experience for its customers and associates via a cloud-based and mobile enabled single platform.
“Our pursuit at M&F is to reduce the wealth gap by providing access to capital that helps our customers achieve their goals,” said James Sills, President, CEO and Board Member at M&F Bank. “We’re excited to be using nCino, one of the best platforms in the industry, to foster this mission and empower our associates to meet the needs of our customers with excellence. The partnership between M&F and nCino has been terrific, and we look forward to continuing working together to execute on our trategic plan.”
“Working with nCino has been more than implementing software,” added Valerie Scruggs, SVP/CTO on loan from one of M&F’s big bank partners. “nCino worked with us from the beginning, ensuring our people were prepared for the transformation and had all the resources and information they needed to succeed with these new tools. True transformation takes a partnership, and that’s exactly what we have with the team at nCino.”
“The partnership we have with M&F Bank is foundational to the transformation the Bank is driving within their operations,” said Will Cameron, SVP of U.S. Financial Institutions at nCino. “We are proud to provide M&F with the technology platform they need to provide faster and easier access to capital for the communities they serve while strengthening its own performance and becoming more efficient.”
