Welcome to ABA Coffee Talk, held the second Wednesday of every month. Launched in October 2021, each 1-hour session will consist of one ABA vendor partner presentation and roundtable discussion that addresses topics selected by YOU, our ABA banking community. They will cover everything from developing internal efficiencies to meeting customers’ ever evolving experience demands. Our goal is to give you an opportunity to learn a little bit about our vendors in a concise and easily digestible manner. And of course, we all need a coffee break during the day, so grab a cup-o-caffeine and come join us!

Previous Sessions

Coffee Talk with Celero Commerce
With Financial Technology on the rise, it’s more important than ever to know where your money, your customers, and deposit relationships are going. Simply put, FinTech companies are entering areas such as DDA and lending, which threatens key areas of profitability for community banks. They are capturing business owner and customer activities to create their own payments ecosystem that banks are not involved in. Through data mining capabilities and advanced reporting tools, Celero Commerce bridges that gap and delivers the technology and information banks need to keep deposit relationships. Listen to the recording of Celero’s SVP of Bank Sales, John Dodd.
