MONETT, Mo., Aug. 8, 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 Symitar® division announced today that $450 million Community Credit Union of Florida has selected Episys® as its core processing solution. David Brock, this credit union's president and CEO, said, "Technology is a mission-critical component in our ability to meet our growth goals and optimize our evolving business strategy. After making the strategic decision to identify and implement a best-in-class technology platform, we launched an extensive due diligence process in late 2010 that initially included eight core systems. Our evaluation systematically eliminated individual solutions and providers for a variety of reasons that ranged from our concerns over the company's long-term viability to extremely poor connectivity to third-party solutions. During the process, Symitar clearly demonstrated that it wants to be our long-term business partner and that Episys is the best-in-class system we need. Episys is a robust, highly scalable system that can support virtually unlimited customization. It is intuitive to use, will seamlessly support our unique workflow, and enable material and immediate process improvements. Episys also benefits from a very active, very collaborative user community; integrated access to an extensive array of third-party solutions and providers; and an aggressive but practical product roadmap. Symitar's service culture, client retention, solid conversion record, and proven change management process also influenced our decision." According to Ted Bilke, president of Symitar, "We are confident that our ability to deliver a technology platform encompassing Episys' deep functionality and flexibility, our growing array of fully integrated complementary solutions, and the niche third-party solutions this credit union elects to use will enable it to optimize its dynamic business strategy, continually enhance the member experience and staff efficiency, and capitalize on the trends that are shaping the financial services industry. We believe Community Credit Union of Florida's Episys decision can be its last core technology decision and we look forward to a long, successful relationship with this growth-focused credit union."
