Oct 1 - Data Center Inc, developer of the iCore360 core banking software and related technologies used by community banks nationwide, has acquired several software product lines from longtime business partner Benchmark Technology Group in Alpharetta, Ga., including the STeller, Proof21, BSA Navigator, Compass, Branch Capture, Corporate Capture21 and SnapShot products for branch banking automation.
DCI and Benchmark have been strategic partners since 1998, when DCI began selling and assisting in the development and customization of the Benchmark products for DCI core banking clients.
"This acquisition is a perfect fit for DCI and our customers," said John Jones, DCI president and CEO. "Benchmark is perhaps our closest, most collaborative partner, and we've been so involved in the development and potential of these products that we know the people like family and the products like the back of our hand."
DCI also acquires the related clients and development/support staff from Benchmark.
"We know DCI will take good care of these products, staff and customers," says Terry Shiver, Benchmark president. "DCI has a talented, caring staff and a very collaborative user group that will ensure a bright future for these products and customers."
DCI will continue to support and enhance the development of the products with particular emphasis on expanding their capabilities and assimilation into the company's flagship iCore360 core banking software.
Benchmark will continue to focus on expanding their existing branch automation equipment solutions, including teller printers, scanners, ATMs, cash handlers, CashWare software and more.
