Oregon Community Bank & Trust Implements Community Banking Systems' Document Imaging and Remote Capture Solutions

DALLAS--(www.AllPayNews.com)--Sept. 13, 2006--Community Banking Systems (CBS), a provider of check imaging products and services for community financial institutions, has been selected by Oregon, Wis.-based Oregon Community Bank & Trust to provide its document imaging, check imaging, Check 21 and remote capture solutions. The bank chose CBS over several providers based on the usability of all components of the system.

Oregon Community Bank & Trust researched imaging providers for several years before choosing a system. Dan Behrend, CEO of Oregon Community Bank & Trust, met with Sean Pennock, president of CBS in March 2005.

"We decided to go with CBS because it gave us the opportunity to use and benefit from all aspects of the service," said Behrend. "It was superior to all other systems we considered, and working with CBS as a company has been a wonderful experience."

Oregon Community Bank & Trust began profiting from CBS's check and document imaging, remote capture and remote deposit capture soon after installation in March 2005. The system provides faster processing and adds an additional service hour at the end of the day. "After a painless installation, we immediately saw a reduction in personnel costs and increase in efficiency because the software was so easy to use and had streamlined our operations," said Behrend.

Using the new solution, Oregon Community Bank & Trust now has the ability to instantly re-print statements from the last six months and provide customers immediate responses to inquiries. "The system is so user-friendly that we can provide accurate answers within seconds. Our customers have enjoyed the upgrade in service time," continues Behrend.

"Oregon Community Bank & Trust needed a check imaging solution that could increase efficiency and reduce cost throughout the entire organization," said Sean Pennock, president of CBS. "With CBS, the bank has taken advantage of the full range of components provided by our system, which has enabled them to focus more on customer service, directly resulting in increased profitability."
