Bank Opts for Core and Channel Solutions to Leverage Integration, Increase Efficiency
LAKE MARY, FL, Nov. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Harland Financial Solutions, which was acquired by Davis + Henderson Corporation (D+H) in August of this year, announced that its PhoenixEFE® enterprise solution has been chosen by Country Bank ($1.4 billion in assets), based in Ware, Mass.
The PhoenixEFE solution is an integrated enterprise software platform that brings together Harland Financial Solutions' real-time core processing solution with the company's market-leading specialized applications. It is one component of D+H's extensive portfolio of solutions which, through the acquisition of Harland Financial Solutions, has expanded to include four broad service areas: Enterprise Solutions, Lending Solutions, Channel Management Solutions, and Payments Solutions. The capabilities of the PhoenixEFE solution span the functions of the financial institution's entire enterprise.
Country Bank is a current user of Harland Financial Solutions' LaserPro® suite for compliant loan documents and the CreditQuest® commercial loan risk management system. With its licensing of PhoenixEFE Core, the bank also selected numerous integrated solutions from the company, including Touché® Analyzer for business intelligence, the Cavion® suite of Internet banking, mobile banking and website hosting solutions, ActiveView® Item Processing Services, FMS financial accounting, uOpen™ for online account opening and funding, and card payments solutions.
Country Bank cited strong integration among existing and new channel solutions with PhoenixEFE Core, cost-savings, ease-of-use and an already strong relationship with Harland Financial Solutions as the primary reasons for investing in additional solutions from the company.
"The integration of PhoenixEFE Core with our existing LaserPro and CreditQuest products means we now have a complete, integrated lending package with straight-through processing," said Paul Scully, president and CEO of Country Bank. "The addition of the self-service, business intelligence and other Harland Financial Solutions products integrated with the core - as well as the 360-degree customer view within PhoenixEFE Core - means we can serve customers better and more efficiently, while eliminating many redundant data entry tasks."
PhoenixEFE Core is also very intuitive to navigate through with its interface which emulates
Microsoft's Office® Ribbon," continued Scully. "Finally, we were very comfortable partnering with Harland Financial Solutions, not only through our existing relationship, but throughout the latest sales process. Everyone at the company - from the CEO to our sales team - was open, accessible and helpful."
"We are pleased that Country Bank has decided to expand its partnership with Harland Financial Solutions to include a more comprehensive, enterprise approach," said Bill Zayas, chief operating
officer of Harland Financial Solutions. "Country Bank joins an increasing number of financial institutions looking to leverage core and integrated channel solutions to deliver innovative products and services to their customers, while keeping costs to a minimum. PhoenixEFE can deliver on all counts, helping Country Bank retain and grow relationships, while remaining highly efficient."
