About UFS


UFS is a bank technology outfitter with a clear promise to make technology work for community banks so they can focus on banking and serving their communities. We were created by community bankers for community bankers. We maintain a vision to provide purpose-built technology services and solutions that are exclusive to the community banking industry to ensure community banks can thrive.


For most of our history, we grew through referrals to support approximately 30% of our Wisconsin home state banks, and are now sharing our community with banks across the United States. Our customers look to us as partners to provide reliable, accurate, and best of breed technology solutions that enable the banks to achieve their own unique goals.


In a world of technology, it’s all about people, and our people are the heartbeat of our company. We attract passionate people to our mission driven vocations and continue to be honored as a Top Workplace. Our core support team has an average of 13 years of banking experience before joining the UFS team. Bankers serving bankers with passion – does your technology partner do that?

Q

Our History


UFS began more than 30 years ago with three banks that saw promise in a community of shared technology and expertise that allowed them to control their destiny. With an effort to compete with large national banks, UFS grew into a unique community of banks, with a focus on innovating to address their constant changing needs. Thanks to our collaborative visionary leadership, our data center was the first in the United States to be full Check-21 enabled, our customers rolled out mobile banking at 10 times the industry average, and we are a singularly rare bank-exclusive cloud service provider. While there is more we could share, we’d love to have a conversation to learn about your bank and how you might fit into our community too. Are you a candidate to be part of the UFS story?

Come Say hello!


Let’s collaborate together to find a solution that fits best for you.
