“Working with IRA AURIT and the BankSITE® TEAM has to rank up there as one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made.”

“We have been with BankSITE® Services for over 12 years, and Ira has been there for us every step of the way. His over-the-top personal service and proactive approach to development are impressive. BankSITE® has given us the tools to manage a very dynamic website at a reasonable cost, and they provide us with live support whenever needed. Examiners have never had a compliance or security concern with our website since BankSITE® stays abreast of regulatory requirements.”
– Erik Stanton, EVP/CFO, Cornerstone Community Bank
“BankSITE® totally re-did our website, which was prehistoric and very limited. Working together with Ira and his staff, we made it more modern and interactive for our members and potential members. Recently, we upgraded the site to a ‘Responsive’ theme and it looks better than ever. The BankSITE® TEAM is with you every step of the way, and are committed to getting it done right. If you are looking for a cost effective professional website designer, I’m confident BankSITE® will deliver for you and your project as well.”

As a small but growing community bank, we recognized that it was necessary to seek a web site development company that was knowledgeable about bank web sites and the security and compliance requirements.
Finding ourselves in an unusual time crunch, we immediately began seeking avenues for a more secure platform. We met with several web development companies that were capable of performing this task with a 3 to 4 month period at tens of thousands of dollars!
We needed quick service that would ultimately have to be completed within one month. We then discovered BankSITE Services!
During our first teleconference with Ira Aurit, it became music to our ears! BankSITE Services is a bank marketing internet web developer specific for small community banks. They knew exactly what we needed and offered more additional services not available anywhere else at no additional costs!
Ira Aurit made it easy and cost effective. Within a 4 week period we went from the initial meeting into launching our new live website!!!
Most exciting, this website management is user friendly. Even a complex update is made easy with the help of their instructional videos.
– Debbie C. Small, President & CEO, Community Bank & Trust
“BankSITE® Services is truly amazing. By far, they provided the most reasonable pricing, excellent customer service, and put forth the extra effort to give us the comfort level we desired in choosing their service.”
– Mark Graziadio, V.P. Marketing, Honesdale National Bank
“The time had come for us to modify and update our website and I had done extensive research to find a company that would meet our needs and our price point and I am so very glad that we went with BankSITE® Services! The Content Management System is a breeze to learn and the support you receive from the BankSITE® Team is nothing short of amazing. Ira is quick to help you learn the system and takes the time to walk you through any questions that you may have. You’re simply not going to get this level of service anywhere else.”
– Vassi Bieber, AVP – Director of Marketing, Morgan Federal
“BankSITE® Services has hosted our Website for over 15 years. They have worked with us in the designing, redesigning, updating and training of our current website. During this time they have continually enhanced their products and services, additionally, with the exception of adding new products and services, we have never had a price increase on any of our acquired services. BankSITE® has constantly stayed informed with the latest website and security monitoring technologies. They provide not only website hosting and monitoring but they go beyond general enhancements and address any of the latest security threats, scams, virus attacks and phishing schemes. Over the past few months, some the biggest banks in the country have experienced massive Distributive Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks. BankSITE® not only alerted us about these attacks but also immediately created a security solution to address them. As the Assistant Vice President of Information Technology at Citizens Bank, I would highly recommend BankSITE® Services as you Website Host.”
– Gregory Page, AVP, Information Technology, Citizens Bank
“I want to personally thank you for your special assistance throughout our core conversion and online banking conversion process. Julie has told me you were exceptionally helpful to her and therefore to the Bank. People like you who are committed to exceptional service are rare.Sure it is your company but you could have delegated much of this. You are one of those rare people, and I want you to know how much we appreciate your help. It would be a pleasure to see you once again at a Bank convention just to get reacquainted. Maybe one day we will. In the meantime, should you ever need someone to provide a reference for you or your company, know you can count on me.”
– Dale B. Steinlage, President & CEO, New Carlisle Federal
“We approached Ira with a dilemma: our company was hosting two websites, needed a third, and our current platform was failing. Our provider wasn’t living up to any timeline on getting the third site up and functioning, so we left them. In an unbelievable timeframe, Ira and his team of programmers rolled out the website we needed and started the process of migrating the other two to a new system. The end product for each site exceeded expectations. Since then, Ira has kept us informed of new risks and ways to mitigate them, exciting new ideas like responsive design, and has been an invaluable resource as we maintain our sites.”
– Jennifer Sobotta, AVP/Marketing Director, Forward Finanical Bank
“If you are a small, community bank and you talk a good game about local control for community responsiveness, BankSITE® Services is worthy of your consideration. The ease of use and Ira Aurit’s personal commitment to his product are unsurpassed. Ira runs his business the way we want our customers to perceive us. He is intimately involved with every aspect of the website and he’s AVAILABLE. No matter who drives your Internet Banking module, I have no reservations recommending the BankSITE® Team to build your “front door”. BankSITE® Services will help you brand your own unique identity and guide you every step of the way to a very affordable, Bank specific web presence.”
– Larry Cunningham, President & COO, First Home Bank
“We have provided website design and hosting services to hundreds of financial institutions for over 15 years, and would like to share some of their comments with you: We simply gave BankSITE® Services a few points of information and they developed a most comprehensive website for our bank. We’re a small bank with meticulous taste. However, BankSITE® worked within our budgetary restraints and developed a product that met our standard of excellence. It afforded our bank an easy to use and attractively arranged website without the hassle and added expense of contracting for this service through other vendors. BankSITE® President, Ira Aurit, was personally involved in the process from start to finish- which further indicated the Group’s commitment to client satisfaction. Simply put – we’re very pleased and proud of our Website as developed by BankSITE® Services.”
– Dr. Deborah A. Cole, President & CEO. Citizens Bank

I am writing on behalf of my relationship with Ira Aurit, President of the Forms Group. I am responsible for Sterling Financial’s Vendor Management Group, having formed a business relationship with Mr. Aurit since the mid ’90’s when I was Vice President of eCommerce at “Sterling”. The initial relationship was one simple contract culminating over these years to approximately fiye additional multi-year contracts spanning several of our Sterling affiliate banks.
Needless to say, Mr. Aurit’s service has numerous competitors, however, we have chosen not only to stay with his company btt we’ve obviously expanded the relationship… not only because of his competitive product offerings but also due to his character and his sound business practices. Sterling is a publicly traded company and as such are “under a microscope” with respect to public and regulatory scrutiny. This scrutiny carries over to our vendor relationships, and I’m proud to say that Mr. Aurit’s company has always been responsive to any of our business needs. In many respects he is more responsive than many of our larger vendors. He is a joy to do business with. I respectfully request that you offer any considerations and courtesies that may be reasonably requested of Mr. Aurit. I am confident that he will become one of you preferred customers/vendors!
