Heading into the fall of 2019, ProfitStars Commercial Lending Center Suite will boast 500 banks, credit unions, and other FIs as customers. The company announced late last week that the milestone had been reached, underscoring the popularity of its solution that leverages automation and digital technology to streamline and enhance the commercial lending process.
Calling commercial lending “the last paper-based process left in banking,” ProfitStars president Russ Bernthal credited the lending technology for helping lending institutions make better decisions, more effectively manage risk, and boost profitability. “By partnering with us, 500 institutions are empowered to more effectively manage borrower relationships from one loan experience to the next, strengthening existing relationships and driving new business opportunities.”
Among the banks and credit unions to deploy ProfitStars Commercial Lending Center Suite in recent months are First National Bank, which selected the technology in May, and First State Community Bank, which announced its decision to deploy the solution in March. In addition to banks, firms like United Capital Funding, an accounts receivables and factoring company, have leveraged ProfitStars commercial lending platform to improve portfolio management and better serve their customers.
“Since installation, we have benefitted from more advanced portfolio management and flexible reporting tools,” United Capital Funding managing partner Ivan Baker said. “The platform also offers comprehensive digital capabilities that allow us to enjoy more touch points with our clients and connect with them when and how they prefer.”
A division of Jack Henry & Associates, ProfitStars demonstrated its Budget Manager solution at FinovateSpring 2012. Budget Manager is a distributed budgeting tool that enables administrators to access front line budget data and input in into the ProfitStars ALM/Budgeting app. The company’s offerings, which also include check imaging, card processing, and payment solutions, help its 9,000 customers manage risk, control costs, optimize revenue, and support growth.
In addition to ProfitStars partnership news this year, the company’s new product releases made fintech headlines, as well. This spring, ProfitStars introduced its Gladiator Total Protect solution, a suite of managed, IT, network security, and compliance services for banks. The release of Gladiator Total Protect follows the launch of its Gladiator iPay Enterprise Security Monitoring solution, made available last fall.
ProfitStars is headquartered in Allen, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.
