D+H announced that more than 2,000 financial services industry leaders have gathered at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort in Florida for Connections 2014, D+H’s client conference. D+H’s lending, core, channel, payment and optimization solutions power approximately 7,000 financial institutions in the United States and Canada. The conference allows D+H clients to connect and exchange new concepts with peers, and to hear from industry thought leaders and visionaries. Here’s what happened:
D+H CEO Gerrard Schmid kicked off the event by discussing industry trends and providing insight into his vision for the future. “As your partner, we are focused on connecting with you to understand your challenges, which is why we take great pride in hosting this event,” said Schmid. “The shifting landscape in banking and technology requires banks, credit unions, regulators and their FinTech providers to work more closely than ever. The challenges are daunting, but the opportunity to leverage these challenges to innovate are all the more exciting.”
This year’s conference marks a first for gathering Compushare, Mortgagebot and Harland Financial Solutions clients together under the D+H brand and was hosted on the heels of the one-year anniversary of D+H’s acquisition of Harland Financial Solutions. In addition to bringing together the Company’s unified client base of banks, credit unions, mortgage lending and equipment financing clients, the event also hosts a variety of strategic alliance partners, industry research and consulting firms and members of the financial trade press.
“Connections 2014 presents us with the opportunity to gather with our clients and other industry thought leaders to tackle the issues and opportunities facing our industry, educate them on the solutions we provide, learn about the best practices they have in place, and share our innovative ideas for the future,” said Bill Neville, president of D+H in the U.S.
