CITY OF CHARLES, W.Va., January 5, 2022 / PRNewswire / – (OTC: PTBS) – BCT-Bank of City of Charles, also known as The Community’s Bank, today announced that it will digitize its commercial lending experience through a collaboration with Jacques Henri & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY).
BCT has grown rapidly in recent years after investing heavily in digital banking solutions, namely their website, digital wallets and mobile deposit functionality. Yet the bank’s old loan origination system had a manual background process, resulting in a painful experience for borrowers and employees and a long turnaround time for loans. To continue to grow, BCT needed a loan origination solution with a superior customer interface and a transparent process, one that would increase efficiency, improve the customer experience, streamline internal work efforts, and ultimately eliminate customer disruption. unnecessary costs. With Jacques Henri, the bank benefits from a centralized and flexible solution that allows lenders to make an informed credit risk decision, track and monitor individual loans as well as manage portfolios.
Anthony J. Ranghelli, Vice President and Technical Director of BCT, explained: âWe have selected Jack Henry lending platform because it supports our broader digital banking strategy. The platform will help us grow with scalability and efficiency while improving everyone’s experience. Our immediate goal for the next few years is to geographically expand our digital loan footprint to support businesses in neighboring communities and diversify our portfolio. We selected Jacques Henri to position us for success and help us break down physical barriers. “
The solution’s fully digital loan portfolio creation, analysis, review and management workflows will enable BCT to better serve clients and small and medium businesses in their communities and beyond. In addition, mobile capabilities will allow the bank to meet customers wherever they are by giving them the ability to bank and apply for loans at their own pace. Ranghelli added âWith Jack Henry, we will be better equipped to help small and medium businesses in our community and increase our support for niche industries like dental and law firms, a top priority for our bank. This extended relationship will not only streamline efficiency with customers, but will also improve internal processes, as our employees will benefit from cross-training and have a single point of contact with the supplier, resulting in a supplier experience. coherent and greater continuity. “
Gary lewis, Managing Director of Jack Henry Lending, commented, âThe digitalization of the banking industry is happening rapidly, and consumers expect their financial institutions to follow and continue to serve them on their financial journeys. By making strategic investments in digital solutions now, institutions like Banque de City of Charles will be better positioned to serve their customers and communities in the future and to differentiate themselves from the competition. Our loan system reinvigorates the lending process by providing lenders and borrowers with an easy-to-use, fast and flexible solution, which is exactly what customers are looking for today. “
