Frandsen Financial, a bank located in Arden Hills, Minnesota, was having difficulties keeping up with processing ACH payments, with bank employees spending almost two hours each day manually entering large batches of files. According to Dave Buggeln, director of information systems at Frandsen Financial, the process was slow and “prone to error”.

Since installing OpCon, the bank’s IT department has shifted away from working “mundane, repeatable” tasks, to monitoring ACH payments.
