PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--First Bank and Trust of New Orleans, Louisiana has recently partnered with SQN Banking Systems for select fraud detection and prevention needs. The bank is using SQN’s SENTRY: SigCheck, SENTRY: Inspect, and SENTRY: Exception.
With 13 branches and over 14,000 accounts, First Bank and Trust deals with an average of 2,700 inclearing checks and 4,000 on-us items daily, and double that during peak times. Approximately a third of their clients are commercial, and as small businesses are more likely to be affected by check fraud compared to individuals, the bank wanted to have extra safeguards in place to replace an existing FraudGuard* system and help further protect their customers.
*Fraud Guard is a trademark of Fiserv Corp.
Joe Uhland, President of SQN Banking Systems, said of the project, “SQN has completed a successful installation at First Bank and Trust, and we are pleased to help them further protect their clients against fraud.”
Using an advanced suite of tools and techniques that reduce fraud and error in financial transactions, SQN leverages technology to secure a bank's most valuable asset—the trust of its clients.
