FIS Named as a Leader in IDC MarketScapes for North American Omnichannel and Digital Banking Solutions

April 2, 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--FIS ™ (NYSE: FIS), a global leader in financial services technology, today announced that it has been named as a leader in two recent IDC MarketScape evaluation reports of the North America banking market.*

The recognition comes as FIS sees growing marketplace success for Digital One and the Digital United platform, which enable banks to deliver a modern, seamless experience across both consumer self-service and banker-teller operations.

FIS is named as a leader in two IDC MarketScape reports:

  • “IDC MarketScape: North America Omni-Engagement Retail Banking Solutions 2019 Vendor Assessment,” which evaluates companies that provide both a self-service and enterprise-facing sales and support solution to the North American retail banking market;
  • “IDC MarketScape: North America Digital Banking Customer Experience Platforms 2019 Vendor Assessment,” which evaluates providers of self-service digital banking solutions to institutions in North America.

IDC Research Director Marc DeCastro, who wrote both reports, notes that Digital One “is truly omni-channel, with both the digital banking and enterprise solution delivering an efficient and synergistic single platform.” He also notes that “Financial institutions that requires a solution to be core agnostic and can provide either an out-of-the-box digital banking experience or a more custom approach based on the financial institution’s needs and are looking for a modern open banking platform consider FIS.”

Gateway Mortgage Group is one of a growing number of financial institutions that are choosing FIS Digital One to deliver a modern, unified cross-channel user experience for customers. The firm chose Digital One to power online account origination at Gateway First Bank, its new digital bank being launched later this year.

“Today’s consumers expect their banks to provide the same convenient, intuitive experience that they receive when shopping online, hailing a car, or buying pizza,” said Bruce Lowthers, chief operating officer, Integrated Financial Solutions, FIS. “FIS is bringing those advanced digital capabilities to financial institutions of all sizes with Digital One and Digital United. We are excited to see our innovation and leadership in this market space recognized by the IDC MarketScape.”

Built on a modular, component-based architecture, FIS Digital One solution including its Digital United platform are core-agnostic and can be used on both FIS and non-FIS banking platforms. FIS core clients will be able to upgrade to the first modules of the next-generation Digital One solution starting in the first half of 2019. FIS is also expanding availability of Digital One and Digital United to financial institutions outside of North America later in 2019.
