MONETT, Mo., March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its ProfitStars® division today announced the addition of its Enterprise Conversion SolutionsTM (ECS) suite and its JHA EPS SmartPay Biller Direct℠ solution to the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) Preferred Service Provider program.
When banks migrate to a new system, whether it's because of a merger or acquisition or a legacy system replacement, the project is often resource-intensive and risky. With ProfitStars' ECS, banks can convert and import legacy system data in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The solutions help keep files protected and intact, increasing overall security and compliance. As the largest conversion business in the financial industry, the ECS team has managed data conversion projects for more than 1,000 financial institutions, including more than half of the largest 100 domestic banks.
Don Gann, senior vice president and chief information officer of First State Community Bank, commented, "ProfitStars' ECS has been a valuable tool for converting acquired application data archives. Every member of the ECS team is an expert in data conversion, and they go above and beyond to adapt their services specifically for our institution's unique needs."
JHA EPS SmartPay Biller Direct, a fully integrated module of JHA's Enterprise Payment Solutions™ (EPS) SmartPay Suite, strengthens financial institutions' relationships with their business customers by simplifying billing and payment collection, ultimately streamlining and reducing the cost of the accounts receivable process. By leveraging the solution, businesses are enabled to upload and manage bill and invoice information on a customizable, branded site. The businesses' customers can then conveniently view bills and easily make ACH, card, PayPal or other types of payments from their computer, mobile phone or tablet.
Dan Clancy, ICBA executive vice president of services, said, "ICBA is dedicated to helping banks innovate and increase efficiency across all areas of the institution. Enterprise Conversion Solutions and JHA EPS SmartPay Biller Direct give participating community banks access to more secure data conversions and customized payment offerings. These solutions showcase how banks can leverage technology to improve processes and evolve the overall customer experience."
Russ Bernthal, president of ProfitStars, added, "ProfitStars' Enterprise Conversion Solutions and JHA EPS SmartPay Biller Direct are valuable resources to banks aiming to improve their digital processes through both data conversion efficiencies as well as e-bill, invoicing and payments. These solutions provide ICBA community banks with tools to increase process efficiency and positively contribute to their bottom lines."
