Bremer Bank Launches New Online Banking Platform St. Paul, Minn.– September 27, 2007
Bremer Bank, a regional financial services company jointly owned by its employees and the Otto Bremer Foundation, recently launched its new Bremer Online Banking platform for clients. The new platform provides an upgraded online banking experience for clients including: improved navigation, more security, upgraded bill pay capability, self-service features and alerts and secure messaging.
”We recognized that more and more of our clients are doing their banking online,” said Pat Donovan, president and chief operating officer at Bremer Bank. ”In response to our clients' needs, we are excited to launch the new Bremer Online Banking platform which is a significant new tool. At Bremer, it is our focus to take action for our clients and provide them top financial solutions to reach their goals. The new Bremer Online Banking platform is just one example of how we take action."
Bremer Online Banking features a new look for quick and easy transactions and is more secure. Upgraded bill pay provides clients the opportunity to control the timing and amount of payment on bills to an individual or company in the United States. Clients can also schedule one-time or recurring payments through bill pay. Additionally, the new platform includes self service features, allowing clients to manage their online banking preferences and update personal information. Lastly, clients can receive alerts and submit questions through the secure message center about online banking or their account.
Bremer partnered with Corillian Corporation, now part of CheckFree, late last year in building the new Bremer Online Banking platform. Corillian provides next-generation online banking and payment services. For additional information on the new Bremer Online Banking platform access.
