Washington, D.C. (June 11, 2020) —The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) today announced that it has extended its Preferred Service Provider agreement with ProfitStars®, a division of Jack Henry & Associates Inc.®, to include Forecasting and Financial Reporting (FFR) to support community bank strategic planning.
“Community banks are looking for ways to apply technology to create more efficient and accurate forecasting,” ICBA Senior Executive Vice President of Community Bank Solutions Kevin Tweddle said. “With ProfitStars’ flexible, customizable solution, community banks can accomplish both, allowing them to meet budgetary goals while serving the needs of their customers.”
FFR is a comprehensive and flexible budgeting system that allows community banks to be nimble and modify budgets easily. It provides community bankers with tools and data for effective strategic and tactical planning, beginning with meaningful standard, customized, and graphic reports that update automatically. Bankers can apply files from any core system, create a budget, build what-if models, view budget versus actual variances, and compare test cases.
Russ Bernthal, vice president of Jack Henry & Associates and president of ProfitStars, said, “Accurately monitoring and fully understanding financial health and activity are top priorities for many community banks today. With our robust forecasting and financial reporting solution, institutions can simplify and modernize the strategic planning process, generate more accurate financial forecasts, and easily view discrepancies between monthly budgets and actuals. The forecasting model can easily be shifted to reflect various economic conditions, helping ICBA member banks better prepare to serve their customers during good times and bad.”
