Phoenix International Ltd. Inc. has licensed its client/server core banking software to EverTrust Financial Group Inc. of Everett, Wash.

EverTrust would install the system at its Everett Mutual Bank and Commercial Bank of Everett subsidiaries. It would also adopt Phoenix's Internet, telephone, and automated teller machine applications. And it has contracted with Phoenix's creative services group to design, build, and install an intranet and corporate Web site.

Lori Christenson, senior vice president of EverTrust Financial, said the switch to a client/server system would let the company spend 90% of its time interacting with customers and only 10% doing transactions, the reverse of what its mainframe currently requires.
