MIAMI, Oct. 13, 2020: Technisys, the company behind next-gen digital banking platform Cyberbank, is powering Canada’s newest digital banking app – Brightside by ATB Financial. The digital-only banking app has been designed to offer customers a way to start spending and saving without switching banks since it connects directly to wherever customers already do their day-to-day banking. Cyberbank has also enabled Brightside to give customers the ability to order and activate a spend card, as well as set up savings features like ‘Round Ups’ and ‘Save Automagically,’ all within the app on their phone.

John Tarnowski, executive vice president at ATB Financial said: “With Brightside, we’ve created a seamless digital experience so Albertans can have more time to focus on the things they love and save at the same time. It takes just a few minutes to get started—people can sign up for an account with a selfie, order a spend card and set up saving features.”

Cyberbank was selected by ATB following an extensive review of 160 digital core banking providers worldwide. Speaking about why ATB selected Technisys’s Cyberbank platform to power it’s disruptive new service, Tarnowski continued: “Cyberbank was the only platform that offered us the structural flexibility we needed to provide our customers with an empathic digital banking experience and financial services that truly differentiate Brightside from other digital banks in Canada.”

Ian Cunningham, COO North America at Technisys said: “The end-to-end capability of Cyberbank sets it apart from other banking platforms. No other platform has the capability to dynamically change end-to-end product definitions and adapt to modern customer behaviors. We are proud to be working with ATB Financial on this new initiative to offer Canadians from Alberta a better way to bank and save, all from the palm of their hand.”
