Planters First Bank Leverages Banc Intranets’ Employee Portal to Strengthen Internal Communication across Branch Network

Senior management prioritizes centralization of information to maximize employee efficiency

UNION CITY, Tenn.--()--Banc Intranets, a provider of secure, web-based enterprise content management solutions for financial institutions, announced that Hawkinsville, Ga-based Planters First Bank (PFB) implemented its BancWorks® employee intranet to strengthen internal communications across seven locations.

After joining the bank in July 2015, CEO Heath Fountain began searching for an intranet to maximize the accessibility of employee information and documents and also to consolidate the amount of data on PFB’s email server when communicating internally. Led by Fountain, the evaluation process involved a committee that was made up of individuals from senior management, IT, information security, marketing and business development. After considering multiple solutions, PFB selected Banc Intranets’ BancWorks due to its compatibility with the bank’s core banking system, integrated features and unique search functionality.

“In the previous system, things weren’t as organized as they should have been and there was a significant amount of data redundancy that made locating and storing information largely inefficient,” said Fountain. “When it came time to vet an internal communications tool, it was important that all departments were involved in the process and BancWorks was the unanimous choice. It has placed all necessary information at our employees’ fingertips, which has enhanced their ability to serve customers by being more knowledgeable about our products.”

“Centralized information strengthens internal processes, turning tellers into universal bankers and branches into production centers,” said Mark Anderson, CEO of Banc Intranets. “By prioritizing organizational efficiency, the leadership at PFB demonstrates an understanding of how effective communication can be a solid foundation for success.”
