Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2007/10/26 - High praises for SwiftKnowledge, Inc. given by Anchor Bank’s Director of Information Services, David Marks. This comes on the heels of the launch of their eagerly anticipated SwiftKnowledge Version 8.0, Banking Intelligence software.
In an interview with David Marks on October 11, 2007, SwiftKnowledge’s keen attention to details as well as their comprehensive and innovative technology was sighted as key factors in Anchor Banks decision to partner with SwiftKnowledge, Inc.
“SwiftKnowledge handled the complete installation and configuration of our banking intelligence suite,” said Marks. “Their depth of knowledge in Business Intelligence and their involvement in vertical industries also complimented us and made them a value added service.” Marks also complimented the professionalism, “super-intelligence” and dedication of the SwiftKnowledge team. “They’re a dedicated team who were willing to work as long as it takes to get the job done right. They were very focused on listening to us and getting a full understanding of what our needs were then made sure that their solution fulfilled those needs. That is what placed them above other Banking Intelligence Big Boys”
“For the past two years Anchor Bank has been heavily involved in performance measurement, we are always looking for areas of improvement and measuring what we’re doing right. Historically we’ve spent a substantial amount of time across the organization trying to produce reports out of various operational systems. When you have multiple users running multiple reports based on different assumptions, then the results can be varied or invalid based on how the analysis was done and what assumptions were made. We spent way too much time trying to build the data than actually using the data. SwiftKnowledge V8.0 solves those issues.”
Unlike its competitors, SwiftKnowledge V8.0 is a solution focused customized system that provides an in-depth diagnostic analysis and reporting tool, designed simply for bank personnel. The software takes advantage of the latest in both modern banking and internet technology. This robust system provides end users and management staff with effective tools to get their job done right, the first time, every time. The patented security and performance technology solution boasts multiple layers of architecture (e.g. data layer, presentation layer) to allow banks to add or change data sources without rebuilding the entire solution.
SwiftKnowledge Inc. effectively introduced its comprehensive, layered and cutting edge approach to Banking Intelligence. This once again demonstrated the qualitative thinking that made SwiftKnowledge, Inc. pioneers in the industry.
