Inaugural Jack Henry Annual Conference Combines Three Events into One Inclusive Forum

October 11, 2017

Monett, Mo. – Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Next week the company is launching its Jack Henry Annual Conference (JAC), a four-day educational forum and technology showcase that combines the Jack Henry Banking Educational Conference, ProfitStars Educational Conference, and the Jack Henry Banking Executive Forum.

JAC presents a consolidated opportunity for even more CEOs, clients, and vendors to learn from and interact with their peers and technology providers. Approximately 200 educational sessions and training classes will be held in conjunction with product and service demonstrations from Jack Henry Banking and ProfitStars to share best practices on how to leverage technology and industry partnerships for success. Approximately a dozen core banking prospects will be in attendance to learn more about the company’s culture and hear from current users.

Kevin Runyon, executive vice president at Peapack-Gladstone Bank, commented, “JAC combines the best parts of Jack Henry’s educational conferences and will give us the chance to discuss industry trends, opportunities, and challenges with peers and the associates representing Jack Henry Banking and ProfitStars in an unprecedented format. We look forward to the wealth of information and connections this opportunity presents.”

A few standout events during the JAC include:

  • Keynote speaker and futurist, Mike Walsh, CEO of Tomorrow, a global innovation consultancy, will discuss how regional and community financial institutions can plan to thrive in an age of artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and data overload. He will outline the mega-trends shaping the future of business and consumer behavior.
  • A cyber-attack drill, in which all attendees will be part of an incidence response team responding to security challenges and navigating the aftermath. Decisions will be analyzed and guided by Jack Henry & Associates’ business continuity, security, and crisis communication experts.
  • A test-track lending speedway where bankers compete to chart the best course for bringing loans from inquiry to pay off using the Commercial Lending Center Suite™.
  • More than 130 strategic partners as well as Jack Henry Banking and ProfitStars solutions will be available for review and conversations at the TechConnect Showcase.

David Foss, president and CEO of Jack Henry & Associates, commented, “This year marks the beginning of a new tradition at Jack Henry & Associates. JAC brings together the classic elements that have made the Jack Henry Banking and ProfitStars Educational Conferences successful, while adding new information-rich features, sessions, demonstrations, speakers, and technology providers under one roof. We look forward to hosting this educational event and technology showcase for our community of partners to interact with and learn from, so they can ultimately build better businesses.”
