August 2017, Southington, Conn. – Bristol County Savings Bank, based in Taunton, MA, is the newest community bank to partner with COCC for core technology services.
With $2.0B in assets and 17 locations throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Bristol County Savings Bank recently celebrated its 170th anniversary as a mutual financial institution. BCSB services over 111,000 customers for deposits, loans, investments, business banking, cash management services, and more.
BCSB has seen strong growth in the past few years, in part by focusing on investment in electronic banking, alternative delivery channels, mobile banking, and more. The bank began their search for a new core processing provider in an effort to continue offering traditional and emerging products and services that customers demand at a level of service that is second to none.
COCC’s fully integrated core platform, advanced online and mobile banking offerings, robust cash management suite of services, and vast array of options for reporting and data analysis are testaments to its track record as a leader in the banking technology industry. “With COCC having over 170 financial institution clients, we believe that they are the premier core service provider for community banks,” said Patrick J. Murray, Jr., President and CEO of Bristol County Savings Bank. “This new partnership will bring state of the art capabilities to our customers and our employees.”
COCC’s mission, core values, and reputation appealed to BCSB immensely. Both COCC and BCSB are fully invested in their communities, committing to several community service opportunities every year. Recently, BCSB supported the Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts, Inc. by contributing to the organization’s SPARK Program for entrepreneurial and leadership development. Meanwhile, COCC hosted an employee fundraiser to support the Friends of Fisher House Connecticut. Both companies appreciate the immense value of contributing to the communities that help businesses grow and thrive.
“Community banks and credit unions are the cornerstones of their communities,” said Richard A. Leone, CEO of COCC. “Partnering with these institutions, as well as having their unique and growing needs drive our innovations, has been critical to our success over the past fifty years.”
