Jack Henry & Associates, LINKBANCORP, The Gratz Bank, Modern Banking Services, Banno Digital Platform, LoanVantage, FinTechs, Open API, Pennsylvania, USAJack Henry & Associates, Inc. recently announced that LINKBANCORP, Inc., the holding company of The Gratz Bank and LINKBANK, selected Jack Henry to bring modern banking services to its local community.

Founded in 2018, LINKBANCORP had a vision for entrepreneurial growth, innovation in technology and a branch-lite model to support Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania businesses. A merger in 2021 with The Gratz Bank doubled its asset size to over $1 billion and helped them scale in service and geography.

LINKBANCORP needed a technology platform to improve operational efficiencies and support its goal of delivering relationship-based banking for commercial and retail customers on digital channels. Using Jack Henry’s digital banking and lending capabilities, the bank will gain access to scalable and open technology, including the Banno Digital Platform™ and LoanVantage®, as well as open connectivity to more than 850 third-party FinTechs

Andrew Samuel, CEO of LINKBANCORP, said, “We identified four key components that were most important to our strategy: open API, cloud-based infrastructure, native mobility, and modular architecture; Jack Henry delivers in all areas and more. Jack Henry is ahead of the pack in the industry due to its progressiveness and modern approach to technology and this was further highlighted by the company’s new technology modernization strategy.”

LINKBANCORP was particularly impressed with Jack Henry’s existing industry partnerships. Samuel adds, “Now, we can easily adopt innovative technologies from specialized fintechs that would otherwise have taken us 6-12 months to implement. These partnerships complement the Jack Henry platform and support our growth strategy, allowing us to compete with larger financial institutions locally. Our bankers now have the tools needed to serve as trusted advisors, solving real challenges and continuing to positively impact the financial health of our local community.”

Stacey Zengel, senior vice president at Jack Henry and president of Jack Henry Banking, said, “LINKBANCORP has a strong growth strategy and is investing in technology to continue to support customers in today’s digital world. As a well-rounded financial technology company with a broad ecosystem of fintechs partnerships, Jack Henry is uniquely positioned to help the bank build a modern, flexible, and adaptable platform that will grow with the bank and provide a differentiating and cohesive experience for both commercial and retail customers.”
