Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
Integrated Legacy Solutions (ILS), the leading provider of data and image conversion and migration tools to the financial industry, announced today the successful completion of a document image and database migration for Wichita, Kan. – based Equity Bank. Following the acquisition of First Federal S&L, Equity Bank was able to access archived and migrated image data the very next day by leveraging ILS’ OmniView™ Browser.
“At the beginning of our acquisition, we knew third party intervention was necessary for the data conversion of First Federal S&L due to our short timeframe," said Jennifer Johnson, Executive Vice President of Equity Bank. “Our goal was to find a partner that could support our future M&A projects while having the ability to manage archives quickly for this particular acquisition.”
OmniView enables financial institutions to research and print images and data from various types of report archives, document images and check image systems without having to perform a conversion of data. ILS’ products provide financial institutions like Equity Bank an alternative to traditional data conversion that is more efficient in terms of cost and time. With OmniView financial institutions are able to manage and access information from multiple institutions from a standard web browser, from any location without the data ever leaving the security of the banks network.
“ILS was able to deliver incredible service and understood our needs and objectives for this particular acquisition,” said Johnson. Without delays or any interference in our process, the transition was seamless. As our interest in further acquisitions progresses, we will turn to ILS to assist us along the way.”
“Equity Bank came to us with a unique situation, they were under incredible deadlines with the acquisition of First Federal S&L,” said Kris Bishop, president and CEO of Integrated Legacy Solutions. “This situation was a perfect match for our OmniView browser, the system is easily deployed by ILS staff and all data is quickly moved into OmniView for immediate availability. Our focused process and products significantly reduces overall conversion time, client resource requirements and total overall cost of a complete data conversion. We look forward to future acquisition endeavors with Equity Bank and their continued success with the ILS products and services.”
