DCBank’s foundation and success is fundamentally about a team of talented professionals working together to solve client needs.

No surprise, The DC group of companies has a rich history in the payment industry that traces back to 1997 when Direct Cash Payments Inc. was established.

It pioneered affordable and profitable ATMs for retailers in the Canadian market, marking the beginning of the Digital Commerce Group’s journey. Since then, unwavering commitment to innovation, agility, and customer-centricity has propelled DCB to expand its operations, add new products and services, and grow business on a national and international scale.

Over the years, DC Payments has made significant strides in the ATM business, building it from a single ATM in Canada to a formidable fleet of approximately 25,000 ATMs across five countries worldwide, making it one of the largest operations in the world.

In 2017, Digital Commerce Group sold the ATM business to Cardtronics, the largest global ATM operator, after 20 years of dedicated growth and success.

Throughout the journey, DC Group has remained focused on providing innovative financial solutions, prioritizing customer needs, and adapting to the evolving landscape of the payment industry.

Beautifully Summed up by Jeffrey Smith:

The success, as well as the failures, of a business, are directly tied to the skills and abilities of the team, and I believe this holds true for most businesses. 

Creating an effective and high-performing team requires significant time and resources, and while it’s one of the most rewarding aspects of my role, it’s also incredibly challenging as the bar for performance keeps rising. 

What was considered excellent yesterday may be seen as mediocre tomorrow, so continuous improvement is imperative.

As a business owner, the ultimate motivation for me in starting and operating a business for the long term is developing and executing a plan with a team of motivated individuals, and witnessing the incremental progress we make that eventually translates into tangible results for our stakeholders. 

It’s the small, repeated steps forward that bring about meaningful outcomes and drive our business toward success.

How does Digital Commerce Bank stay relevant to consumer interests and needs in this highly volatile market?

Jeffery Smith Summed up the interview with a time-proven suggestion. 

Listen, listen, listen… And talk less.

I’ll go back to our philosophy of working side-by-side and really getting a deep and thorough understanding of our client’s needs. We don’t just see our clients as dollar values. 

Digital Commerce Bank is typically the frontrunner in innovation and enabling fintech. We believe fintech is our partner, not our competitor. Saying “no” is easy, but we make it our mission to say “yes” and embrace any challenges that come our way.

Digital Commerce Bank is always ready to embrace a roller coaster ride (ups & downs, inevitable for every business) with a positive mindset and healthy work culture. They understand the new norm is to learn, unlearn and relearn every single day.
