Ameris Bank and Integrated Legacy Solutions Partner for Image Migration Projects

Press Releases


Ameris Bank (Moultrie, Ga.) has selected Integrated Legacy Solutions (ILS) and its OmniViewTM product for research and printing acquired image data for its current and future acquisitions. ILS, an information technology company, provides data conversion and migration options including OmniViewTM, a one-of-a-kind suite for data conversions to production systems and migrations to the browser.

“Over the last several years, Ameris Bank has grown through bank acquisitions, adding locations in Georgia and Florida, and we have accumulated a number of systems from the acquisitions,” said Ameris Bank systems analyst manager, Bobbie Humphrey. 

“Researching images from those systems was cumbersome and time consuming. Now that we have purchased the OmniView application, our bank can connect to all the archives, allowing us to access the image data much faster, without having to load into our production system. OmniView streamlines our research process in one solution.”

OmniView is transforming how banks manage their conversions by allowing financial institutions to research and print data and images from any type of check image, document image and report archive system without having to perform a data conversion. ILS’s quick “cut-over” times to research images is proven to save financial institutions like Ameris Bank in the associated cost and time it takes to manage traditional data conversions. With OmniView, financial institutions can perform federated searches and view multiple institutions from a single browser (either during or as an alternative to a conversion) and research all data and images in its native format, from any location.

“Our team has found OmniView to be flexible, easy-to-use and scalable to our needs,” said Humphrey. “Compared to previous systems we have used, it allows for the migration of data more cost effectively and efficiently. We see ILS as a great partner, using OmniView to increase bank-wide research productivity and synergy for our conversion needs.”

“Ameris Bank is another great match for how our conversion solutions are designed, to consolidate multiple systems into one browser,” said Kris Bishop, ILS president, as he further explains why OmniView is a better alternative to traditional data conversion: “We are significantly reducing client 'cut-over' time, risk, and cost while requiring very limited bank resources allowing our clients to better manage their core banking business.”
