FTC Announces Acquisition of United Recovery Services
VERSAILLES, Ky., Sept. 25 (www.AllPayNews.com) -- First Technology Capital, Inc. ("FTC") today announced that they had purchased all of the business assets of United Recovery Services ("URS"), a division of United Computer Capital Corporation (UCCC). URS, located in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is one of the nation's leading providers of Business Continuity Services for both item and remittance processing. URS's New Jersey Recovery Facility contains all of the equipment and infrastructure necessary to allow a financial institution to recreate their production-processing environment at URS's site in the event of a disaster or outage at their production facility. Mr. James Bates, President of FTC, stated, "With hundreds of billions of dollars flowing through the item and remittance processing facilities daily, financial institutions cannot afford to be without the capability to process those transactions in a timely fashion." Mr. Bates went on to say, "There are also government regulations like Check 21 that require financial organizations to take the necessary steps to ensure the continuity of services in the event of some form of outage at the production processing site."
The site in New Jersey will provide a logical extension of FTC's current recovery capabilities located both at one of their sites in Phoenix, Arizona and in partnership with a major disaster recovery supplier at a site in Atlanta, Georgia. "The ability to accommodate multiple customers in the event of a multiple disaster or a regional outage has always been of great importance to the financial community when choosing a recovery supplier," said Mr. Bates. "The addition of Cherry Hill to our inventory of facilities only strengthens our ability to accommodate multiple, simultaneous outages within our customer base."
