Merchants and Farmers Bank selects IBT’s Core and Suite of products for the future

CEDAR PARK, TX – , June 25, 2015 - IBT, Inc., leading provider of cutting edge banking applications, announced today that the Merchants and Farmers Bank of Salisbury, Missouri has chosen IBT as its Core provider. The technology will allow The Bank to meet the specific challenges of the marketplace efficiently and effectively.


Ron Schepker, CEO of Merchants and Farmers Bank stated “We were with our core provider for over 20 years. About a year ago we felt the need to upgrade our technology as a whole. We were on the verge of new projects and used the opportunity to look at what other companies had to offer. We had been through a series of interviews looking at other core providers, until I met Mark Dittman (IBT’s CEO) last September at the ICBA conference in Memphis. I was impressed with the conversation and subsequently I read an article that Mark wrote in Independent Banker’s Magazine. Shortly thereafter one of our hardware vendors mentioned that we should take a look at IBT. Once the dialogue began I was immediately impressed with the company and the product. Because we are a small community bank we can change direction quickly and can be very flexible to meet our customers’ needs. The same holds true for IBT – they treat us the way we treat our customers and we appreciate that. The IBT Suite will allow us to have efficiency in several ways. It will allow us to provide premium customer service and add to our bottom line. We are looking forward to a long partnership”.


“Clients like Merchants and Farmers Bank are as heavily focused on first-class customer care as we are at IBT. We focus on building a foundation for new growth by delivering superior products to our clients.  They are our partners and we pride ourselves on working hand in hand to deliver excellence in the banking products and services they offer their customers. That is The IBT Difference,” stated Mike Golebiowski, president of IBT.
