BankTEL clients say that ASCEND has better reporting functions, a stronger audit trail, and makes it easier to manage multi-branch vendors.

“I like how you can drill down your reports and extract the info you’re looking for,” said Shan Venable, CTO at Georgia’s Altamaha Bank. “It makes research so much quicker.”

Mendy Collier, an accountant with the Tulsa-based Regent Bank, said that ASCEND reduces the amount of time it takes her department to fulfill its duties by 20 percent.

“We are honored that our clients continue to put their trust in BankTEL to deliver solutions that maintain their operational compliance, reduce risk and create additional efficiencies in their accounting workflows,” said Adams. “We are continuing to see increases in fraud attempts, and our clients are being proactive in working towards preventing it. One important mission of BankTEL right now is to partner with clients to address solutions necessary to stop fraud.”
