DCI’s Customer Partnerships Win Over Heartland State Bank


HUTCHINSON, KAN., February 28, 2023 — DCI (Data Center Inc.), the privately-owned developer of core processing, digital banking, and fintech processing solutions, announced that Heartland State Bank, Redfield, S.D., has contracted with DCI to implement its iCore360® bank management and processing system, along with its iCoreGO® digital suite, and Card Services. 

When asked why the bank chose DCI, Heartland State Bank CEO Paul Domke explained, “DCI has a proven track record of embracing new technology. And the makeup of the company – not just their software, but the whole company – assured us they’d deliver what we need, from user-friendly and customer-facing technology and products, to analytical insights.”

DCI’s iCore360® cloud-based core gives the bank a single, secure source of business intelligence and workflow automation that will simplify operations. DCI’s Card Services provides the bank with a single source for all their card and ATM services. And the iCoreGO® digital suite gives Heartland State Bank customers direct access to bill pay, eStatements, mobile/merchant capture, card alerts/blocking, P2P payments, transfers, ACH, cash management, positive pay, and more. 


The bank started looking for a new core provider in hopes of finding a more collaborative relationship. They began conversations with DCI last June. “We wanted a partner that had forward looking capabilities, played well with other technologies, and wanted to continue serving community banks,” said Domke.

Sarah Fankhauser, President and CEO of DCI added, “We are pleased to bring Heartland State Bank into the DCI family. Our willingness to partner with our customers and provide innovative technology is the combination that differentiates DCI in the technology market. We’re excited that Heartland State Bank has discovered our difference and is ready to begin a unique partnership with us.”
