Become an Endorsed Solutions Provider

Our mission is to meet ABA members’ needs through product evaluations and vendor due diligence.


These reviews include analysis by industry experts and validation by bankers. When a solution bears the ABA seal of approval, you can rely on it to deliver top quality performance and reliable results.

Criteria for Evaluation

Our criteria line up with FFIEC guidelines and include: customer service, data security, disaster recovery, financial stability, liability, long-term stability, management strength, partnerships, pricing, product effectiveness, regulatory requirements and solution functionality. Additional due diligence standards are often added or adjusted depending on the nature of the company and the proposed product/service(s), e.g., regulatory compliance, federal legislation and/or investment services issues. To earn ABA’s endorsement, solutions also must:
  • Be on a national scale, fulfill industry needs through superior offerings;
  • Showcase an ability to meet the long term needs of banks and adjust to changes in the regulatory environment;
  • Meet stringent quality and customer service standards;
  • Demonstrate sound risk management and security practices;
  • Help banks make money, save money, diversify income and improve efficiency.

We use banker feedback to determine which products we send a request for proposal to begin the due diligence process.  However, if you have a product that meets ABA's endorsement requirements, please provide information on what your solution is and how it will help our bankers.
