Alloy Labs Alliance: An ABA Strategic Partnership

Helping banks identify, evaluate and implement meaningful new technologies

ABA is committed to helping community and midsize banks find and adopt the new technologies their customers expect. As part of that commitment, ABA is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with bank member consortium, Alloy Labs.

Alloy Labs Alliance is a member-driven shared innovation lab and accelerator that helps you reduce risks, lower costs and shorten the time between ideas and results. Participating in Alloy Labs helps your bank develop a culture of innovation and a plan for implementing value-add technologies—both critical to growing your business. To date, 32 community and midsize banks who are leaders in innovation have joined Alloy Labs.

ABA Members receive advantaged pricing and once you choose to join Alloy Labs Alliance, you have access to three optional areas of innovation. Each area is separately priced, so you only pay for what you need.

ABA hosts informational webinars to highlight the benefits of joining the alliance and how it can help banks identify their innovation priorities. More information will be provided.


Alloy Labs Alliance

Alliance membership gives you access to insights, research and reports, surveys and heatmaps, as well as peer discussions and benchmarking—a low-risk way to jumpstart innovation at a fraction of the cost of building an entire innovation team.


Custom In-House Sessions

Banks can build internal innovation capacity through facilitated in-house sessions aligned with their unique situations and goals. Sessions cover how to build a framework for decision-making, as well as funding and risk management—resulting in repeatable, scalable and sustainable execution.

“We accomplished more in the last 24 hours than we typically do in 3 months” – Member Bank CIO


Peer Workgroups

Banks can join an Alloy Labs workgroup, where they will develop and evaluate solutions based on member needs, cost efficiency and risks. The peer-sharing aspect leads to an expanded set of product development and partnership opportunities.

“This [part] is normally 80 hours of individual work boiled down to 2.5 hours…highly productive for fintech development.” – Member Bank Chief Strategy Officer


Blueprint and Implementation Kit

Banks can speed new products to market with specific guidelines that help them achieve faster adoption. The Innovation Blueprint and Implementation Kit includes all diligence, compliance, and risk management assessment documentation as well as a comprehensive adoption roadmap.

“It’s like buying into a 12-month project at month 9” – Member Bank Chief of Staff
