CARMEL, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Baker Hill, a leading provider of technology solutions for common loan origination, risk and relationship management, CECL compliance, and smart data analytics, announced that Prosper 2019 was yet another successful client conference, with a record 124 attendees represented across 54 financial institutions throughout the U.S.
Held in Nashville, Tennessee, this year’s three-day educational conference aimed to engage, inform and connect attendees with industry and solution experts. In addition to general sessions, the conference included daily breakout sessions focused on CRM innovations, loan portfolio wellness, and profitability for consumer and small business lending. Prosper also provided attendees with valuable insight to address the digital challenges of the industry and how to be competitive with the right tools. Attendees were able to network with peers and industry leaders to prepare for upcoming changes like CECL and discuss best practices going into the remainder of the year including deposit growth.
Attendees also gained in-depth knowledge about Baker Hill NextGen®, which was recently nominated for “New Tech Product of the Year” by TechPoint, the nonprofit, industry-led growth initiative for Indiana’s technology ecosystem. With the most comprehensive combination of loan origination and risk management functionality in a single platform, Baker Hill NextGen® empowers financial institutions to work smarter and drive more profitable relationships. Baker Hill showcased its latest enhancements to the solution and advised attendees on how to best leverage their current investments in conjunction with Baker Hill NextGen® to help reduce risk and drive growth.
“I don’t come to Prosper just for the fun. I come because of the people,” said Debra Hess, VP, Quality Control for Community Trust Bank. “There is a tremendous opportunity to meet and network with other institutions that may be facing the same challenges, and together we can share best practices and solutions to solve those challenges. It really feels like a family and I always look forward to attending.”
“This is my first Prosper conference,” said Jenn Sansone, Commercial Information Systems Manager for Northwest Bank. “The sessions are informative and engaging, and the networking at Prosper is invaluable. Financial institutions like ours are able to meet with others and discuss similar challenges and learn new ideas, creating a truly collaborative environment. I would absolutely encourage other bankers to attend.”
“In its fourth year, Prosper is proving to be a highly-engaging event, arming attendees with actionable insight that can be applied within their financial institution to drive growth and profitability while reducing risk,” said John M. Deignan, President and CEO of Baker Hill. “The feedback from both our partners and financial institution clients has been tremendous, and the level of insight provided is empowering them to supercharge profitability while shrinking risk and loss. We’re proud of its success and look forward to Prosper 2020.”
