10-bank holding company leverages online channel for seamless banking across any device

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: QTWO), a leading provider of secure virtual banking solutions to regional and community financial institutions, today announced its partnership with Heartland Financial USA, Inc. and the successful implementation of the Q2platform across Heartland’s 10 banking institutions.

“We have a proven track record of delivering our software to the field, and our recent collaboration with the team at Heartland continues to show leadership in this area,” said Matt Flake, CEO and president of Q2. “Everyone at Heartland has an outstanding commitment to simplifying the online and mobile banking process and creating a seamless user experience for account holders. As a result, today all 10 of Heartland’s banks across eight states have a superior online and mobile banking experience.”

Between April and August 2014, all 10 of Heartland’s community banks—representing $5.9 billion in assets—have implemented the Q2platform for their respective online banking needs. Banks include: Dubuque Bank and Trust Company, New Mexico Bank & Trust, Wisconsin Bank & Trust, Rocky Mountain Bank, Riverside Community Bank, Arizona Bank & Trust, Galena State Bank & Trust Co., Minnesota Bank & Trust, Summit Bank & Trust and The Morrill & Janes Bank and Trust Company.

“With the Q2platform in place, our banks are adding new functionality to their mobile banking platforms including person-to-person payments and transfers with other banks,” said Brian Fox, EVP of operations at Heartland Financial. “When your customers have come to expect standard banking features on your mobile platform, it’s important to differentiate yourself in the marketplace and offer something that makes their lives easier. The Q2platform has allowed us to do just that in a very stable and reliable way across all 10 of our banking markets.”

In addition to new functionality, the Q2platform provides a flexible system architecture built around the tablet design, which is seamlessly translated across any device, whether it a smartphone, desktop or other device, so customers have the same experience regardless of device.
