First National Bank & Trust and the Fidelity Information Services ("Fidelity") division of Fidelity National Financial, Inc. (NYSE:FNF), a Fortune 500 provider of products and outsourced services and solutions to financial institutions and the real estate industry, have announced the signing of an agreement for ImageCentre check imaging, wholesale remittance imaging, and other payment processing solutions.
Headquartered in Kokomo, IN, First National Bank & Trust is a subsidiary of Hasten Bancshares and is one of Indiana's largest privately held banks. First National Bank & Trust serves communities throughout central Indiana and offers a complete suite of retail, commercial, trust, and other banking services.
The ImageCentre suite provides financial institutions with a complete browser-based payment processing and document management solution. The ImageCentre Wholesale Remittance module automates the capture of checks, stubs, invoices and letter and legal size documents into an integrated customer transaction. Once captured, a bank's customer can access information from a web-based front end for research, report retrieval and to download files to accounting packages. BankWare, a provider of check imaging solutions, developed the ImageCentre suite of products and was acquired by Fidelity Information Services in April 2004.
"We are excited about the partnership with BankWare," said Terry Runyon, First National Bank & Trust's Item Processing Manager. "We are confident that the ImageCentre solution will be responsive to technology needs today and in the future. ImageCentre's integrated solution provides a suite of products that meet market demands, while protecting our clients' best interest. ImageCentre's browser-based solution empowers us to take full advantage of image technology - helping us to promote superior customer service."
"The suite's integrated capabilities go beyond streamlining processing," said Bob Darty, group executive for the BankWare division of Fidelity Information Services. "First National Bank & Trust and other progressive financial institutions will find that ImageCentre also improves transaction integrity, eliminates capture passes and expenses on imaging equipment, and enables earlier fraud detection to reduce potential losses."
