Sonora Bank Opens New Technology-Driven Satellite Office in San Antonio
New Loan Production Office Features Adjacent Innovative Personal & Commercial Banking Technology
Sonora, TX (July 26, 2022) – Sonora Bank is excited to announce the opening of a new a satellite loan production office in Rogers Ranch, one of North Central San Antonio’s most popular communities. Adjacent to the loan production office is a secure, 24-hour access interactive teller machine and cash exchange machine—the first of its kind in Texas—making the convenient, technology-driven location ideal for personal, commercial and loan customers.

“The widespread interest that we’ve seen among current and prospective customers within the San Antonio market for our unique brand of banking is growing. This new satellite location in Rogers Ranch is the first of its kind for us,” said Bob Malone, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sonora Bank. “In addition to being a loan production office, the adjacent office space is equipped with a secure interactive teller machine (ITM), where customers can interact via camera with a personal banker located in Boerne, and a cash exchange machine for our commercial customers. We are the first bank in Texas to be able to offer this solution to customers. These innovative technologies allow us to give our customers additional convenient avenues in which to conduct banking.”

ITMs take your traditional deposit‐taking ATMs a step further into the future with integration that gives the customer more options such as paying a loan or transferring between accounts. While the site offers secure, 24-hour access, video and audio capabilities allow customers to talk and interact with a customer support representative if help is needed during business hours. The self-service cash exchange machine is a high-speed device that allows customers the convenience of not having to visit a traditional brick and mortar branch to conduct cash exchange-related transactions.
