First Freedom Bank is among a limited number of banking institutions that now offers innovative technology giving customers the convenience of opening depository accounts online. Customers will have the option to take care of all of their basic banking needs without the worry of traveling to a branch. The service will extend First Freedom’s reach and will complement the bank’s current online portfolio including bill pay, fund transfers and mortgage application services.“First Freedom Bank is setting the standard for community banks in Middle Tennessee,” said John Lancaster, President and CEO of First Freedom Bank. “Our customers have busy schedules and many work outside of Wilson County. We are excited to give them the freedom to take care of their banking needs when their schedules allow, while continuing to provide the high level of care they expect from a community bank.”
The process to open an account online at First Freedom is simple, easy to navigate, and will not require the customer to come into the bank to finalize the process. The software was developed specifically for First Freedom Bank customers and boasts the leading online security in the industry, 256-bit SSL encryption. Additionally, First Freedom’s support staff will be on hand during business hours if customers have questions about the online account process.
“First Freedom’s focus has always been on the customer,” said Lancaster. “We never stop looking for new and better ways to serve them.”
