DAYTON, OH – November 12, 2014 – Hyosung, the fastest growing supplier of ATMs in North America and the market leader in Branch Transformation solutions, today announced that Ohio Valley Bank will be utilizing Hyosung’s cutting-edge video banking technology in its new branch in Barboursville, WV
When planning for this latest branch development, Ohio Valley Bank studied consumer demand and evaluated how to make the branch as efficient as possible. The community bank is now planning to transform this latest branch in 2015 by adopting Hyosung’s assisted Branch Transformation solutions. By implementing the Hyosung MX8800 terminal and the MS400A cash recycler, Ohio Valley Bank will be able to direct everyday transactions to this new self-service system and to help streamline their daily branch operations. This will allow for added focus on the customer by moving staff away from the teller line to better engage and educate customers on services specific to their needs. By giving customers control of their banking experience, Hyosung’s solution will allow faster processing time in transactions and the ability to access the branch at any time.
“We chose Hyosung because of its strong position as the market leader in the Branch Transformation technology space. We are confident that the Hyosung banking solution will help us provide a more consumer-centric banking experience,” said Tom Wiseman, President and CEO, Ohio Valley Bank. “Our Virtual Banker shifts the focus of the branch staff so that they can build valued relationships with customers by better responding to their individual banking needs.”
“We believe that by utilizing a combination of technology to transform current and future branches through assisted on-demand servicing, bank employees can be higher-level consultants at each location,” said Mario Perottino, Vice President of Product Planning and Marketing, Hyosung Americas. “Ohio Valley Bank is one of the most progressive community banks in the region and an exciting organization to work with. Organizations like Ohio Valley Bank are extremely influential amongst local retail clients. Hyosung is committed to developing solutions that meet the needs of banks of all sizes so that they stay relevant for their customers in today’s highly competitive marketplace.”
Ohio Valley Bank will be the first community bank utilizing core technology to bring innovation and speed to the banking experience. The implementation of this technology at Ohio Valley Bank comes as a result of tremendous market demand for innovative, customer-centric banking solutions. As rapid digital channel adoption and client demands continue to evolve, Hyosung’s technology allows banks to embrace this transformation to better service branch customers and create a positive assisted self-service experience. Ohio Valley Bank customers can expect to see the Virtual Banker in the Barboursville branch in February 2015.
