Building a Better Ecosystem to Enhance the Client Experience 
By Kirk Coleman, Chief Banking Officer, Q2 

Financial institutions (FIs) are inundated with information about the newest industry developments, and it can be a challenge to discern between hype and reality. At the same time, they understand the importance of finding new ways to enhance their offerings to meet their account holders’ needs.   

With that in mind, we are doubling down on our commitment to help our customers identify digital strategies that address their unique needs as they navigate the market. 

Our Q2 Catalyst announcement is a notable example of how we are enhancing our focus on creating outcomes for our customers, not simply providing solutions. It is an example of our decision to take an even more holistic view of what FIs like yours need and how we can provide an ecosystem to address those needs. Q2 Catalyst is a broad suite of commercial banking solutions designed to help commercial bankers win more clients, onboard them faster, enable them to serve their customers better and grow deeper, more profitable commercial relationships.  

We are excited to partner with you as you serve your clients and make an impact in your community.
