Preferred Vendors


Bankers Helping Bankers is a social community at its core. Its intelligence layer powers the community engagement, acting as a social engine. BHB achieves this data driven engagement in these key ways:

SOCIAL PLUS: BHB personalizes the banks experience—recommendations, interactions, digital strategy and even discussions—by grouping banks’ discussions by topics, partners and peers. This is a new, elevated conversation based on information bankers haven’t had before.

FINTECH DIRECTORY: All U.S. fintechs that provide a banking function (requires a sponsor bank) are included in the database. It is the only directory built by data, which ensures completeness. Search all of a fintech’s features and app store data (number of installs, age of app and ratings, and view the digital experience of the fintech).

VENDOR DUE DILIGENCE: The technology selection process for community banks has long been broken. Community bankers need vendors that integrate with a bank’s current technology and pass the regulatory hurdle of “three live installs.” Using AI algorithms, FinTegration Strategist precisely defines your recommended product shortlist.

BANK DIGITAL SNAPSHOT: Find your bank peers, view that community bank’s digital experience through its app(s), financial KPIs and call report financial KPIs.

SMART VENDOR DIRECTORY: BHB offers a definitive list of vendors with at least one live bank install. Learn where vendors serve their customers best by asset size and financial KPIs of their install base.

EDUCATION: Get data-driven education and thought leadership to stay on top of news, industry trends and cutting-edge innovations.
