2015 ISA ENTRY – ProfitStars EPS SmartPay Express™

ProfitStars® EPS SmartPay Express™, part of the Enterprise Payment Solutions (EPS) product suite, enables financial institutions to provide custom online payment and donation services for business customers. SmartPay Express processes payments in a hosted environment, managing the security and IT concerns for businesses. The platform provides a custom branded URL address and microsite for each business and supports single or recurring payments from:

  • Checking or savings accounts (processed as ACH transactions);
  • Credit or debit cards;
  • PayPal® accounts; and
  • PayNearMe™ cash payments

One of the many ways that SmartPay Express can help community banks become more efficient is by providing the banks’ merchants with a customizable, configurable payments page that works in conjunction with their primary website. It’s an ideal solution for businesses that want to enhance their online revenue streams or increase donations without paying for expensive website modifications.

Because SmartPay Express requires minimal technical setup, it can help both banks and merchants expand their capabilities. It’s perfect for business customers who do not have the IT resources to create an online payments option. ProfitStars also provides a hosted environment to process payments quickly and safely.

SmartPay Express can allow banks to better serve their customers by enabling merchants to choose to take single or recurring payments from checking accounts or credit/debit cards. Users can also take advantage of alternative payment methods such as PayPal or PayNearMe. Additional payment methods will be added to the solution as the payments landscape expands.

In summary, SmartPay Express is a customizable payments site that will fit into a bank’s existing payments strategy with ease. By allowing banks and their customers to set up a site that works best for them, SmartPay Express can serve as an efficient and effective tool that enables both entities to provide the highest level of customer service.


2015 ISA ENTRY – ProfitStars: Gladiator® Hosted Network Solutions™

Gladiator® Hosted Network Solutions™ (HNS) is an outsourced IT infrastructure solution that delivers network essentials (servers, storage, network, & operating systems) via JHA’s private cloud. The solution enables financial institutions (FIs) to reap the many cost & efficiency benefits associated with a hosted infrastructure model while leaving the burden of IT mgmt responsibilities to our IT, security, & compliance experts. Further, it allows FIs to repurpose IT resources to focus on more strategic initiatives.

HNS is deserving of an Innovative Solutions Award for delivering the broad range of value & benefits to FIs as follows:

  1. FFIEC/OCC Oversight, Compliance, & Risk Avoidance
    All JHA hosted services are under direct FFIEC oversight. HNS transfers to our experts the risk of disaster avoidance, hardware replacement, & ensuring systems are not compromised.
  1. The Freedom to Stop Chasing Hardware & Shift IT Focus
    FIs find it increasingly difficult to implement & support their in-house IT infrastructures. HNS allows them to get off the ‘revolving technology wheel’ and let Gladiator take on the analysis, implementation, support, & risk of maintaining network hardware.
  1. Disaster Avoidance (DA)
    JHA has implemented one of the most robust DA processes in the industry, and this is the same methodology used for HNS. At least twice a year we transition from two data centers, operating from both sites for at least 45 contiguous days. This redundancy removes the risk of disaster recovery from the FI’s disaster planning equation. This is significant in the eyes of auditors.
  1. Consumption-Based Services with Dynamic Scaling
    HNS uses the consumption model based on the amount of resources being used at any given time. These services are metered, scaling up & down based on the applications being used or retired, delivering huge flexibility for optimal utilization of FI resources.
