Testimonials

At The NBS Group, we let our work stand for itself. Read on to find out how we have helped our clients.

"This was the first time our bank used a consultant to help us negotiate
pricing and contract terms. I was very pleased with The NBS Group's expertise
concerning our debit card processing contract, as the vendor accepted many
of The NBS Groups's pricing and contract suggestions - suggestions that we were
unlikely to have requested on our own. I wish we would have used The NBS Group on
previous contracts, but fortunately, we now understand the benefits The NBS Group
brings to the table. We will definitely utilize The NBS Group again in the future."

Eric Garretson CFO & Exec VP
Bank Of KC

"The bank has had a long standing relationship with its core system and electronic banking providers.   In the last couple of years we have expanded into several new services and are more aggressively undertaking strategic projects across the organization.  When it came time to renew our contracts we wanted to be sure we were receiving the best possible pricing on our new and existing services.


"The NBS Group had worked with us successfully on other projects before and came highly recommended for contract negotiation.  Mark Shaw conducted a granular analysis of our current and future services, and was able to secure significant savings over what we are currently being charged.  He has an expert understanding of market pricing for bank financial services as well as detailed knowledge of key areas to focus on for savings.  I would highly recommend The NBS Group for contract negotiation or other strategic projects."

“Making the decision to hire an outside consultant to help us through the Core Processing vendor evaluation process was not the difficult decision to make for our Bank.  The key component was aligning ourselves with a firm that would allow us to make an objective decision that best met our unique strategy – and The NBS Group didn’t disappoint.  Their execution from day one helped the Bank identify the best solution, secured competitive pricing and provided further guidance with service level agreements, performance conditions and other contractual arrangements.  We highly recommend The NBS Group.”

“Our management team knew we did not have the time to evaluate alternative core banking systems, nor did we have recent experience with changing core vendors.  The NBS Group presented a comprehensive approach to define our needs, evaluate our options and facilitate the entire process for the Bank.  This was done while working toward our overall objectives of simplifying our vendor relationships, lowering technology costs and modernizing our technology environment.  The NBS Group was an integral part of our team right from the start and through post-conversion activities.”

Robert DiBella, Executive Vice President
The Savings Bank, Wakesfield, MA
“Upon approaching the daunting task of evaluating whether to renew our long term agreement with our core banking system provider, our management team knew we had the capabilities to go through the process, but we were concerned with the ability to commit the time required to perform a detailed investigation of alternative providers and solutions.  We engaged The NBS Group and were able to effectively manage a comprehensive study and evaluation of all our incumbent technologies as well as compare and contrast viable alternative providers, in a timely, thoughtful, very competitive manner.  This well managed, multi-year process ended with selection of, contract negotiations for and ultimately, conversion to our chosen technology solutions.”


Hal Horvat, Executive Vice President
Mansfield Savings Bank
“We appreciated the breadth of experience that The NBS Group brought to our core conversion.  Whether it was project management skills, system knowledge, or problem resolution we were able to count on The NBS Group to guide our teams successfully through the process.”

“We were in a position to take advantage of some market opportunities to grow our bank, but we wanted to do it in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible. We hired The NBS Group to help us re-think our organizational structure and staffing, our processes and workflows, and our technology, all with an eye towards maintaining our high standards for risk management and compliance. We found The NBS Group to be frank, efficient and quickly able to become part of our senior management group offering alternative operating models and facilitating our analysis and decisions regarding our structure, staffing and key business processes. It was a great experience. ”
