In an effort to help members of Western Independent Bankers (WIB) grow their commercial loan portfolios, Inmatrix debuted its Optimist and Portfolio Strategist solutions at the association’s 49th Annual Conference held March 18-22, 2006 at the Marriott Camelback Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. The draw to Inmatix’s Vendor Showcase Presentation was unprecedented with well over 100 of the conference’s 346 registered participants in attendance.

"As our newest WIB-endorsed Value & Income Program (VIP) Partner, Inmatrix garnered an exceptionally strong and positive reception from our attendees," said Anne Scully, president of WIB Service Corporation. "The level of interest and enthusiasm exhibited for the Optimist and Portfolio Strategist products was extraordinarily high. We believe this endorsed suite of products will bring significant value-added to our members' ability to monitor and manage their credit risks."

Representing Inmatrix at the Vendor Showcase Presentation were David Smorgon, executive chairman; David Allen, president and chief executive officer; and Steven Weinberg, senior vice president & national sales manager. Attendees -- including directors, presidents, and senior officers of WIB-member banks -- were introduced to the powerful capabilities of the Optimist and Portfolio Strategist commercial banking software solutions.

“Optimist and Portfolio Strategist are the ideal solutions for community bankers striving to succeed in the commercial lending arena,” said Inmatrix’s Smorgon. “These products enable them to simultaneously develop strong relationships with their clients and manage risk to their banks. The unique, interactive dashboard approach of both Optimist and Portfolio Strategist enhance financial communications between a banker and client and assist in positioning the banker as a trusted financial advisor. Bankers also gain the ability to diagnose clients who are showing signs of deterioration, closely monitor changes in their performance, and implement corrective action early on to prevent problem loans.”

In addition to the Vendor Showcase Presentation, Inmatrix hosted a reception for registrants and their guests. Five-hundred attendees enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and games of skill and chance including “Dunk the CEO or Chairman.” All proceeds from the Dunk Tank went to the Enduring Freedom KIA Fund, which benefits families of U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq.
