Teslar Software to Streamline and Automate Lending for Missouri-Based The Seymour Bank

  • Teslar Software announced a partnership with Missouri-based community bank, The Seymour Bank.
  • Courtesy of the deal, The Seymour Bank will use Teslar’s lending process automation platform to modernize and streamline its commercial lending business.
  • Teslar Software made its Finovate debut at FinovateSpring 2015 in San Francisco.

The Seymour Bank, a Missouri-based financial institution with more than $137 million in assets, has selected Teslar Software to enhance its commercial lending strategy. The bank will use Teslar’s lending process automation platform to reduce reliance on manual processes and boost efficiencies..

“With Teslar, we will become more accessible to our customers, delivering a portal that allows them to easily and quickly monitor the status of their loans and securely communicate with us,” The Seymour Bank vice president Heather Johns said. “Plus, Teslar’s automated workflows will save time for our employees, resulting in a better, more efficient experience.”

In addition to the digital customer portal, designed to improve convenience, The Seymour Bank will also leverage Teslar’s technology to improve its ability to track documentation and monitor exceptions. The institution, founded in 1939 and headquartered in Seymour, MIssouri, outside of Springfield, prides itself in its commitment to local involvement and customer service. But, in the words of Johns, the bank “also want(s) to be recognized for modern technology and seamless experiences.” The partnership with Teslar will bring the benefits of modern, automated technology to both the bank’s customer-facing and back office operations.

“The Seymour Bank is a locally owned bank that has prioritized serving its customers and community for more than 80 years,” Teslar Software founder and CEO Joe Ehrhardt said. “We look forward to supporting the bank as (it provides) more digitized, seamless interactions to enhance both the customer and employee experience.”

Teslar’s partnership with The Seymour Bank comes just weeks after the firm announced that it had teamed up with National Bank & Trust to streamline the Texas-based financial institution’s lending process with a new suite of automated workflow and portfolio management tools. Chartered in 1888 as The First National and headquartered in La Grange, Texas, National Bank & Trust is a full-service bank dedicated to providing customized service, “lightning fast lending”, and future-focused technology.

Winner of the 2020 Finovate Award for Best Fintech Partnership for its PPP.bank initiative – a free website developed in collaboration with Citizens Bank of Edmonds and Mark Cuban – Teslar Software was founded in 2008 and made its Finovate debut at FinovateSpring in 2015. Since then, the company has grown into a robust, portfolio management system provider and strategic partner to help community and regional banks compete in an increasingly tough and crowded environment for lending services.

Teslar is making its return to the Finovate stage next month for FinovateFall 2022 in New York. Visit our FinovateFall 2022 event hub to learn more.
