Geezeo CTO: “AWS Cloud Provides Us an Easy Way to Develop Our Services” #video

Geezeo, a financial technology (fintech) firm enhancing the digital banking experience via its white label retail and business digital financial management solutions, is featured in this new video published by AWS. Their CTO, James Elwood, discusses how Geezeo uses the cloud in “innovative” ways to improve their application’s performance.

“We elected cloud computing with AWS because it provided a relatively easy way to develop and build our services,” said James Elwood, CTO of Geezeo. “Partnering with AWS offered us simplicity in accessing servers, building storage and databases, and establishing a broad set of application services over the Internet. Since Geezeo was an early adopter of AWS in the financial services space, the key to success was keeping up with scale and making sure data was secure.”

Geezeo was one of the first fintech companies to leverage AWS cloud technologies, launching their live-to-consumers personal financial management solution in early 2007, migrating fully to AWS Cloud in May of that year. Geezeo has since evolved into a comprehensive, technology savvy Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company that provides digital financial management and data solutions to community banks, regional banks, and credit unions. Leveraging AWS as a component of its technology infrastructure has enabled Geezeo “to scale quickly, safely and seamlessly.” Today, Geezeo serves over 550 banks and credit unions across the U.S. and processes millions of transactions daily.

“The AWS cloud has been a tremendous asset to Geezeo and translates into our ability to be more responsive to the needs of our partners and clients,” said Shawn Ward, CEO of Geezeo. “It has given us the capacity to scale allowing our product and technology teams more opportunity to bring innovative fintech services to market, such as AI-powered voice assisted financial management and dynamic new ways to enrich data.”
