Chelmsford, MA—Nov. 11, 2015—Fauquier Bank is using self-service data preparation software from Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH) to access data from across different business lines to make faster, better decisions about security, marketing, audits and other areas that impact customers and the bank’s bottom line.
The Virginia-based community bank had struggled to access necessary data for reporting and analysis because it was spread across multiple sources from a variety of vendors and in many different file formats that were difficult to pull into analytic applications.
Things came to a head when the bank decided to upgrade its core bank processor. With disparate data sources scattered between the old and new core processors, as well as in a cold storage system, employees had to resort to printing and reviewing hard-copy reports from different systems line by line to continue normal business operations.
The Fauquier Bank turned to Datawatch Monarch software to access and prepare reliable data quickly, no matter what system or in what format. It has enabled all bank departments to analyze critical data more efficiently in order to immediately make more profitable business decisions.
“Datawatch has increased the credibility and efficient use of information throughout the organization,” said Janet Grimsley, vice president of decision support at The Fauquier Bank. “Before this, it was inconceivable to bring data from different areas into one data set that could be used for security, marketing, audits and other business line decisions that would directly impact the bottom line.”
The bank now uses Datawatch to write models based on specific report criteria that extracts data in different formats from a variety of disparate sources including data warehouses, archives and third-party data. This gives business users prepared, easy-to-comprehend information for making swift, insightful decisions. The software also automates the output of daily reports without involvement from IT. With the bank data, models and exports all managed by automated processes can now be shared with users across the organization.
For example, finance, accounting, retail support and other departments can now apply analysis to decision making for things like creating data files for third-party staffing models, ensuring that bank tellers are properly staffed throughout the day. Support and audit departments are also using Datawatch to quickly validate banking processes and settlements without the use of paper or the need to have IT on site to create reports.
“The Fauquier Bank’s ability to quickly provide complete, relevant data has made its users more interested in how they can then leverage the information to guide immediate decisions and optimize all areas of operation,” said Dan Potter, chief marketing officer at Datawatch. “Automating cumbersome manual processes of data preparation with Datawatch can result in powerful positive change in the way banking gets done.”
