系(jì) and 绑(bǎng) both means ‘tie’ while 系(jì) is used to match with ‘shoelaces’, rope’, while绑(bǎng) is used to match with a broader scope of nouns including people and products.

For example,

他把小王绑在了柱子上

Tā        bǎ   xiǎowáng    bang  zài    zhùzi   shàng

He                  name         tie    to     pillar   on

‘He tied Xiaowang to a pillar.’
