DCI is to core processing what community banks are to banking. I don't know how any other core provider can compete with DCI's culture.

There is no other core processor worth considering, in my opinion.

DCI Elects Client Bankers Jeff Ball and Keith Hughes to Board of Directors
– Prominent Bankers Join Seven Others to Continue Tradition of Servant Leadership –

HUTCHINSON, KAN., April 24, 2015
– Data Center Inc. (DCI), the privately-owned developer of iCore360® core banking software and related technologies, has elected prominent client bankers Jeff Ball, the founder, president and CEO of Friendly Hills Bank in Whittier, Calif., and Keith Hughes, CEO of First National Bank of Hutchinson, Kan., to join seven other DCI clients as members of the company’s board of directors.

Ball and Hughes each bring over 30 years of high-profile community banking experience to the DCI leadership. Mr. Ball is the immediate past chairman of the California Bankers Association (CBA), chairman of the CBA’s Federal Government Relations Committee, and member of the American Bankers Association Administrative Committee. Mr. Hughes serves on the Kansas Bankers Association board of directors and Federal Affairs Committee, and is credited with building one of the region’s foremost correspondent banking operations.

The company’s board of client bankers is one of several reasons DCI is unique in the bank technology industry. DCI has remained privately owned by a group of clients for 52 years, with clients also serving as user group leaders involved in the development of the company’s software technologies. As a result, DCI has earned a reputation for highly personal customer service and innovation, with consistently high satisfaction ratings.

Said Hughes, “I know from experience that you cannot find a more caring, customer-focused company than the people at DCI. I’m honored to join this group of professionals and the servant leadership they bring to other bankers.”

The election of Ball and Hughes to the board of directors also continues the company’s aggressive movements toward strategic growth, following recent changes in sales management and major acquisitions of Internet, mobile, and branch banking software solutions to mate with their award-winning iCore360® core banking software.

“I believe DCI is the top technology company in banking today,” said Ball, adding, “I am humbled to be a part of their leadership and tradition of helping bankers with core technologies and support that they can genuinely trust.”

John Jones, DCI president and CEO, also commented, “We are fortunate to have bankers of their caliber, experience and dedication as DCI board members. It’s one of many reasons our customers know they can trust us to put them first in all our business decisions and product developments.”
