Dear CBAO member,
The Community Bankers Association of Oklahoma is pleased to announce our endorsement of SHAZAM, a nationwide leader in debit processing and core banking systems. As Oklahoma banks looks for ways to gain efficiency and increase non-interest income, we chose a partner who’s focused entirely on their clients’ success, not on the success of third-party shareholders.
SHAZAM occupies a unique position in the payments industry as the only member-owned, independent debit network, processor and core provider supporting community banks. Their mission is to strengthen community financial institutions, just like yours.
SHAZAM’s commitment to the CBAO has grown over the years. SHAZAM professionals provide education to our members, their advocacy specialists consult with us on legislation that impacts our industry, and their decisive support for our events is unmatched. We believe SHAZAM’s contributions to our industry will strengthen the CBAO member banks that make Oklahoma communities great.

What does it mean if you join the SHAZAM network? Clients who joined the SHAZAM network in 2020 increased their combined net income more than $10 million over their current providers over the life of their contracts!
If you’re a current SHAZAM client, that’s the kind of savings you’re earning now. If you’re not a SHAZAM client, it’s probably in your best interests to find out what you’re missing.

I’d ask that you give SHAZAM the opportunity to evaluate your payments network, debit processing or core services when your current contract ends. They’ve invested in the future by developing systems that are flexible and affordable.

To learn more about how your bank can benefit from SHAZAM’s services, contact regional directors: Aaron McGregor for EFT sales and debit card programs, at, 940-507-3614 Tim White for help with core and digital banking programs,, 214-557-9393.   Thank you and have a wonderful day! – Craig
