ProfitStars Teams With RateWatch, Strengthens Loan, Deposit Pricing

MONETT, Mo., Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its ProfitStars ® division today announced a strategic partnership with RateWatch. As a result, RateWatch's competitive rate information is now offered through ProfitStars as Margin Maximizer Interactive's (MMi) Rate Sheet product.

Banks and credit unions are often challenged by setting rates that effectively grow the organization and improve profitability while maintaining a competitive edge. This new partnership allows decision makers to effectively set consumer loan and deposit rates that ensure adequate profitability and take into account the competitive pressures in their local market. The retail-level data adds an enhanced level of sophistication and insight to banks and credit unions leveraging the MMi platform.

According to David Foss, president of ProfitStars, "Financial institutions are required to walk a very fine line when pricing loans and deposits. The rates required to meet customer and member demands while still yielding high returns are complicated and constantly changing. Thanks to Rate Sheet, our clients can now leverage a greater knowledge, discipline, and consistency in their pricing processes, ultimately maximizing net interest income and better identifying growth opportunities."  

RateWatch acquires interest rates, fee, and product information data from more than 90,000 institution locations across the nation, and its database is continually growing. By combining its pricing information with the rational applications and expert advisors available through MMi, financial institutions can strengthen net interest income and total portfolio values.

Rachelle Zorn, general manager at RateWatch, commented, "RateWatch's partnership with ProfitStars provides the industry with an intuitive tool to quickly and easily assess market positioning and profit potential. Our synergy enables competitive financial institutions to gain more value from both of our services; it just makes sense."

MMi leverages the Microsoft ® Windows ® Azure cloud computing platform to offer clients limitless scalability, simplified implementation, and minimal support resource requirements.
