Acquisition adds to Q2’s portfolio of financial experience capabilities following recent close of the Cloud Lending transaction

AUSTIN, Texas (Dec. 3, 2018)—Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of digital banking and lending solutions, announced today its acquisition of Atlanta-based Gro Solutions, a provider of industry-leading account opening and digital sales and marketing solutions for financial institutions (FIs). The acquisition reflects both companies’ ongoing mission of providing best-in-class digital experiences to FIs and the broader financial services industry.

Gro provides a digital sales platform that drives customer acquisition growth across all digital channels. The Gro platform enables customers to make personalized recommendations and cross-sell products—from deposit accounts to loans for both retail and business clients. Gro’s solution combines advanced, multichannel account opening with targeted marketing capabilities as well as a shopping cart experience. Account holders can simply add financial products when and how they need them.

“With Q2’s recent acquisitions of Cloud Lending and now Gro—combined with our leading, secure digital banking platform—we are delivering powerful solutions for the financial services vertical to provide exceptional experiences needed to keep pace with the high expectations of today’s account holder,” said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. “Our acquisition of Gro adds yet another element that helps our customers reduce user friction, increase engagement in the digital channel and expand their offerings.”

Since its launch and demo at FinovateFall 2015, Gro has defined how FIs leverage the mobile channel to accelerate growth. Also named a “Company to Watch” by American Banker and BAI in 2015, Gro quickly attracted customers and established its solution for omnichannel account opening. The following year, Gro introduced a new back-end portal to help consolidate FIs’ underwriting engines. Gro also unveiled Consumer Protection Plus at Money 20/20, a feature that ensures customer involvement and peace of mind in the account opening process. Continuing its growth and innovation in 2017, Gro received one of the first-ever TAG FinTech ADVANCE Awards. This year, Gro’s momentum continued, adding new customers and announcing new features to its platform, including business account opening capabilities and the new Quick Start process, which enables customers to launch at their own pace rather than waiting on a vendor.

Gro’s addition will provide Q2’s customers with advanced, omnichannel account opening capabilities and a configurable sales platform designed to increase conversion and reduce abandonment. FIs that have implemented Gro’s mobile-first solutions have seen significant increases in completed applications.

“Q2 is a recognized leader in providing innovative solutions for FIs and other financial technology providers,” said David Eads, CEO of Gro. “As a combined force, we look forward to providing leading account opening, ecommerce and end-to-end digital financial solutions to banks, credit unions and other financial technology companies. We are delighted to be joining the Q2 team and look forward to delivering best-in-class in financial digital sales and marketing solutions.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

CentrixDTS Integration with DocuSign Further Streamlines Transaction Dispute Resolution for Financial Institutions

AUSTIN, Texas (Nov. 14, 2018)Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of digital banking solutions for financial institutions (FIs), announced today the launch of its Centrix Dispute Tracking System (CentrixDTS™) interface for DocuSign. The integration will further streamline dispute resolution for financial institutions by automating electronic signatures on any dispute form. CentrixDTS is the industry leader in dispute case management, eliminating manual tracking for both fraud and non-fraud transaction disputes. DocuSign’s System of Agreement Platform connects the world’s leading e-signature technology to every other aspect of the agreement process, improving how agreements are prepared, signed, enacted and managed. Through the integration, FIs can streamline the resolution process by electronically capturing a customer’s signature on the dispute form, which then automatically attaches the signed form to its case inside the CentrixDTS platform. “We’re proud to partner with DocuSign, known and trusted around the world for its secure, cloud-based platform,” said Tim Kindschuh, CentrixDTS product manager. “When combined with the automated tracking capability of CentrixDTS, the DocuSign interface greatly simplifies the dispute resolution process. With many fraud claims coming in via the online channel and into the call center, our clients have been asking for a way to capture customer signatures electronically on dispute forms. DocuSign is the natural solution to meet those needs.” For Austin, Texas-based A+ Federal Credit Union, the integration is necessary to maintain operational efficiency and streamline dispute processes for members. “The CentrixDTS and DocuSign integration has equipped us with another tool to provide a superior member experience,” said Jason Swoboda, assistant vice president of fraud and ePayments at A+ FCU. “Providing members the option to have a document sent and signed electronically enables the case to process faster. It is safe, convenient, and members enjoy the benefit of resolving the dispute digitally rather than making a trip to the branch.” With DocuSign, organizations achieve faster speed to results, lower cost, increased security and compliance, and better customer experiences. In terms of sheer speed, 83 percent of all successful transactions on the DocuSign platform in 2017 were completed in less than 24 hours, and 50 percent within 15 minutes—compared to the days or weeks common to traditional methods. Companies that use DocuSign also eliminate the challenges of faxing, scanning, emailing, mailing, couriering or other manual activities associated with the agreement process. And companies realize an average of $36 of incremental value (with a typical range from $5 to $100 per document depending on use case) per transaction when they deploy DocuSign versus their existing paper-based processes. “As DocuSign continues to grow, we are pleased to have Q2 join our base of more than 425,000 customers and hundreds of millions of users across 188 countries,” said Mark Register, SVP of business development and channels at DocuSign. “Q2 is accelerating DocuSign’s System of Agreement Platform and eSignature solution for more companies around the world so they can achieve all of the benefits of the fully digital business.” CentrixDTS is a product of Centrix Solutions, a Q2 company. Centrix products are designed to empower FIs with the tools they need to detect fraud, manage risk and simplify compliance. For more information on CentrixDTS, visit www.q2ebanking.com/centrix.
