MONETT, Mo., June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq: JKHY), a leading provider of integrated technology solutions and data processing services for financial institutions, today announced that Heartland Community Bank has selected Jack Henry Banking's SilverLake core processing system to provide enterprise-wide automation. This Arkansas-based bank, which has more than $140 million in assets, will implement SilverLake through Jack Henry Banking's outsourced offering.

According to Clyde H. Henderson, chairman and CEO of Heartland Community Bank, "We pride ourselves on providing highly competitive financial products and services, so as our customers become more sophisticated, our markets more competitive, and our business more complex, we made the decision to replace our technology with a platform that provides the end-to-end integration and deep functionality we need to further streamline our operations and efficiently support our near- and long-term business plan. The satisfaction among other banks using the systems we looked at was also a major factor in our decision. We contacted and visited numerous banks running SilverLake to find out about their real-world, day-to-day experiences and we got very, very positive feedback. After evaluating several technology platforms we were convinced that SilverLake is the right fit for our bank, and that Jack Henry provides the commitment to service and the financial stability we want in a technology partner. We are excited about SilverLake and believe the ability to support our business with this sophisticated technology platform will help us take our financial products and services, our customer experience, and our customer acquisition and retention to the next level."

Stan Viner, general manager of sales for Jack Henry Banking, said, "The bankers driving Heartland Community Bank clearly understand the role that technology plays in their ability to aggressively and successfully capitalize on industry trends and business opportunities, to continually refine and streamline operations, and to meet evolving customer expectations. We look forward to a long relationship with this bank based on our ability to support its information and transaction processing requirements with a dynamic technology platform."

In addition to SilverLake, Heartland Community Bank will initially implement an array of Jack Henry Banking's complementary solutions including StreamLine Platform Automation® – Deposits, Vertex Teller Automation System™, Vertex Teller Capture, NetTeller Online Banking™, the InTouch Voice Response® telephone banking solution, Merchant Deposit Capture, components of the modular Synergy™ Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution, the Yellow Hammer™ BSA compliance and risk mitigation solution, and Electronic Statements – Interactive.
