MONETT, Mo., June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq: JKHY), a leading provider of integrated technology solutions and data processing services for financial institutions, today announced the rebranding of Pemco Technologies, which it acquired in October 2009.  Pemco Technologies will be rebranded as JHA Payment Processing Solutions and will operate as a division of Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.  Jack Henry & Associates was contractually committed to rebrand Pemco Technologies within one year of the acquisition.  

JHA Payment Processing Solutions will continue Pemco Technologies' long history of operating as a leading provider of payment processing solutions and outstanding client care and service.  

The products and services added through this acquisition strategically complement Jack Henry & Associates' ATM and debit card solutions with proven credit and prepaid card solutions, and positions the company to support financial institutions with a broader array of payment-related solutions that are collectively supporting more than 1,000 banks and credit unions.  

According to Terry McMullen, general manager of E-Services, "This acquisition supports our goal to provide our clients and prospects with a more complete product offering that includes ATM, debit, credit, and prepaid card solutions and generates more opportunities to increase our presence and potential in the growing payments industry.  We believe creating the separate JHA Payment Processing Solutions brand is the most effective marketing, sales, and customer support strategy for the payments products we sell outside our core client base to financial institutions that use virtually any core system. We are also excited about the opportunity to begin selling select JHA Payment Processing Solutions products, which have historically been available exclusively for credit unions, to banks.  Initially we will be offering our prepaid cards and debit and credit awards solutions to the bank market."  

JHA Payment Processing Solutions has launched an aggressive campaign to systematically communicate the new brand to existing and prospective customers, and to the financial industry at-large.
