American Bank Systems and IMM Partner to Provide Digital Lending Platform for Community Banks

Sponsored by Businesswire

the only eSignature provider that specializes in eSignature and digital
transaction solutions exclusively for financial institutions, announced
it has partnered with Oklahoma City–based American
Bank Systems
(ABS) to integrate IMM eSign with ABS’ CoPilot Loans,
CoPilotDeposits Origination Software, BankManager® Tracking and Imaging
solutions, enabling community banks to electronically process loan and
account opening transactions from origination to closing to electronic
filing, all in a digital environment. ABS also provides advanced
technology solutions that help assess, monitor and lower compliance risk
of financial institutions.

“Community banks that embrace digital transformation have a unique
opportunity to expand their reach and attract new customers without
necessarily adding any new resources to more effectively engage current
customers, building richer relationships and brand loyalty,” said Tom
Ryan, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business
Alliances for ABS. “IMM shares our vision to equip community financial
institutions with modern digital technology needed to be successful in
today’s banking marketplace. Together we’ve created a powerful, yet very
intuitive and easy to use lending and account opening platform that
dramatically decreases the time required to complete a transaction,
streamlines the entire process from origination to closing, and most
importantly, provides an enhanced experience to both the bank’s staff
and its customers.”

The integration of IMM eSign with ABS’ CoPilot and BankManager solutions
eliminates costly delays by automating the entire loan and account
opening process and providing bank employees immediate, real-time access
to concise, compliant documents. Additionally, customers can now access
and sign important documents electronically, at a time and place that is
most convenient to their schedule.

A key factor in ABS’s decision to partner with IMM was its strong
reputation in the banking industry regarding customer service as well as
its innovative technology solutions. By integrating IMM’s products, ABS
will be able to offer this integration to its current software users and
future prospects to help them automate many of their cumbersome
paper-based business processes, streamline operations and enhance the
overall customer experience.

“Together, IMM and ABS are committed to helping community banks not only
survive in today’s digital environment, but thrive,” said Michael Ball,
vice president of markets and strategy for IMM. “Providing bankers the
tools needed to process end-to-end digital transactions boosts
efficiencies across the entire organization, while delivering a modern,
convenient experience that today’s digital consumer demands. We look
forward to a long-term partnership with ABS, working together to equip
banks to succeed today, and well into the future.”

IMM eSign is used by hundreds of banks to power millions of eSignature
and digital transactions each month.
