The acquisition is the most recent for DCI over the past several years, following previous acquisitions of products from Benchmark Technologies and the ProfitStars® division of Jack Henry & Associates (NASDAQ: JKHY), as part of a major strategic growth initiative by DCI in the digital bank technology industry.

DCI will focus on accelerating the overall enhancement and integration with the company’s award-winning flagship iCore360® software used by hundreds of community financial institutions nationwide.
