jackhenryGlenwood State Bank has expanded its relationship with Jack Henry & Associates, selecting the SilverLake System to support its strategic growth goals with added efficiencies, high levels of integration, and advanced digital capabilities.

The bank already uses Banno Mobile, and that “positive experience” with Jack Henry & Associates, combined with the company’s “strong reputation and business longevity”, prompted the bank to select the SilverLake System.

Glenwood State Bank is based in Glenwood, Minnesota and has $289 million in assets. When the executive management of the bank decided it was time for a core system evaluation, the bank recognised the need for a partner that was “mobile-focused, sustainable, and committed to research and development”.

“At the same time, the system can reduce a lot of our previously manual tasks and provide new levels of efficiency that enable growth and a competitive stance. Our agreement with Jack Henry & Associates is a true partnership; they prioritize open communication and value our opinion, which is evident in the service we receive.”

Glenwood State Bank is also moving to Banno Online as part of their partnership expansion with Jack Henry & Associates. By selecting Jack Henry & Associates for both their core system and digital channels, the bank will enjoy tighter integration that will enhance their overall digital strategy.

Nelson continued: “Banno Mobile has allowed us to more seamlessly serve and engage with customers via the mobile channel, and we look forward to extending that exceptional service online. With Banno, we can provide the experience that customers today expect, which made switching to Jack Henry & Associates for our full digital suite an easy decision.”
