Washington, D.C. (Nov. 6, 2012)—The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) announced today that it has selected BLM Technologies as a Preferred Service Provider (PSP). BLM Technologies has been dedicated to serving financial institutions for over 25 years, offering cost-effective service solutions for front-line equipment sourcing and maintenance.
“BLM Technologies has been chosen as an ICBA Preferred Service Provider because of the hardware acquisition and servicing expertise that they bring to community banks,” said Dan Clancy, ICBA executive vice president of services. “BLM will analyze the bank’s technical requirements and budget, recommend hardware and services that will fit the bank’s need, and then follow through with quick hardware delivery, installation and ongoing repair and maintenance.”
The Bank Technology Equipment and Service programs offered to ICBA member banks provide a full range of cost-effective solutions for retail branch locations and home offices. From product purchase to continuing service on equipment, BLM will source such front-line equipment as check and document scanners, receipt/validation and passbook printers, coin and currency equipment, and PIN entry and signature capture devices. Certified technicians will guide end-users through the installation and troubleshooting process. BLM offers both on-site and depot repair.
BLM Technologies also offers a wide range of solutions for new location openings and acquisitions. In addition, BLM performs refreshes for branch automation equipment including printers, workstations, monitors, file servers and other equipment. To expedite the installation process, BLM may stage equipment at their location and ship it to any bank site to meet an installation team.
“BLM is delighted to offer our services to community banks and especially pleased to offer a discounted rate structure to ICBA members,” said Chris Hollen, vice president, sales and marketing. “Our goal is to provide flexible, comprehensive solutions that community banks need in order to keep branch automation technology working as simply, quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.”
“BLM Technologies Inc. has provided our technology support services for many years.
