Back in 2014, Microsoft launched Branch Anywhere for Windows with partnership with Jack Henry & Associates which allowed “banks to centrally manage all aspects of customer info and allows bank employees to become mobile branch managers who can better meet their clients by safely and securely accessing important customer and account information from any location.” Now, today, Microsoft announced that the company is enhancing the solution for banks.
“With the recent launch of Jack Henry & Associates’ new Branch Anywhere application, there’s a natural fit with Surface to jointly help customers in the new world of branch transformation,” says Cyril Belikoff, Senior Director—Microsoft Surface. “Because of its combination of mobility and power, Surface has seen great success with banks that are looking to transform their branches or provide greater mobility to their employees. Customers—many of whom had previously been forced to deploy both iPads and laptops to their users—can achieve everything with a single Surface device. With the recent announcement of the new Surface 3, these financial institutions now have multiple options with Surface to meet their different needs of their varied employees. We believe that our work with JHA truly helps to offer a ‘best of breed’ combination of software and hardware that financial institutions can build around.”
Both of the companies have also partnered with CDW to integrate a purchase portal specifically for Jack Henry customers – which will allow to easily acquire Surface devices. It’ll also allow customers to get Jack Henry & Associates’ software with discounts (when purchased together).
