We’re thrilled to join forces with nCino and combine our similar visions, cultures, and commitments to customers and employees, with the goal of delivering technology that provides real solutions to the industry’s most pressing challenges. Our leading onboarding and account opening solution will complement and extend nCino’s single platform to create even greater value for financial institutions seeking to automate and digitize the experiences they provide to employees and clients.”

“Embracing a single, integrated platform, particularly in commercial or business banking, is more than a technological upgrade – it’s a strategic imperative,” said James Beckwith, President & CEO, at Five Star Bank. “We are very excited to implement and integrate nCino and DocFox’s technologies as we seek to provide an even faster, more simplified, and efficient experience for our clients. We are also excited for the access to industry-leading talent, resources, and synergies the acquisition of DocFox by nCino will bring to the business customer onboarding and banking solution space. The combination of two key providers in our technology mix will help provide a distinct advantage in the marketplace.”
