First Nebraska Bank

the challenge

First Nebraska Bank took a look at their footprint across Central and Eastern Nebraska and predicted upcoming labor shortages in their rural communities and knew they would still need to meet the needs of their customers throughout those challenges.

the solution

First Nebraska Bank went through a full branch analysis provided by DBE to evaluate their current branch environment, challenges, and future goals to determine the right solution in the right location at the right time. DBE guided the bank on the optimal mix of ITMs, Teller Cash Recyclers, and Self-Service Coin Machines, helping the bank improve their operations, and employee and client relations.

First Nebraska Bank was fully committed to the process from the top of the organization on down. Their enthusiasm and anticipation for the transformed customer and employee experience, and their trust in DBE, kept the bank on the right footing throughout the project.


Through the implementation of ITMs, Teller Cash Recyclers, and Self-Service Coin Machines, First Nebraska Bank was able to:

  • Enhance the customer experience by expanding transaction sets and extending service hours
  • Combat labor challenges in their rural markets
  • Create additional opportunities to engage their employees
