Vanco Services and ACS Technologies Team Up in New Alliance

MINNETONKA, Minn., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Financial technology company Vanco Services, LLC, announced today that it has been selected as the preferred provider of integrated online and electronic payment solutions for all information management solutions by ACS Technologies.

"Vanco does things right and from the very beginning we recognized them as a clear choice to be our preferred provider for online and integrated payment solutions for all our software brands," says Tom Carringer, Executive Director, Executive Management Team. "We strongly believe this new alliance will benefit all our clients – now and long into the future."

Both companies are major players in the faith-based market comprised primarily of churches, schools and nonprofit organizations. ACS Technologies, which works exclusively with faith-based organizations, provides information management solutions to nearly 50,000 clients and is the recognized leader in this market. Vanco Services, a PCI Level 1 Compliant Service Provider serving more than 20,000 clients in several different markets, provides electronic donation and payment processing services to over 12,000 faith-based organizations.

Typically, organizations will contract for electronic payment solutions from one company and information management software from another. Such dual purchase decisions are increasingly contingent on the ease with which solutions from two different companies can exchange financial data with each other while still safeguarding sensitive consumer banking information. By integrating Vanco's secure payment services into ACS Technologies information management software, in one of its popular software brands ACS®, Parish Data System®, The City, Headmaster® and Realm™, organizations can satisfy both requirements with a coordinated set of solutions from two highly-regarded companies.

Vanco donation and payment solutions, which at one time were offered almost exclusively on a standalone basis, are today integrated to one degree or another with more than 30 different software systems. The sheer number of ACS Technologies clients and the seamlessness of the integration make the alliance particularly noteworthy for Vanco, which has served the faith-based market since 1996.

"Vanco is very excited about the opportunity to provide electronic donation and payment services to ACS Technologies clients," said Jeanne Spencer Rose, President of Vanco Services. "This new collaboration will greatly enhance the user experience for our mutual clients."
