Hutchinson’s DCI acquires product lines from Georgia partner

A Hutchinson-based software developer and provider to banks across the country said Tuesday it has acquired several software product lines from a firm in Georgia.

Data Center Inc. said in a news release that the product lines include STeller, Proof21, BSA Navigator, Compass, Branch Capture, Corporate Capture21 and SnapShot. It acquired them from Benchmark Technology Group in Alpharetta, Ga., which DCI said is a long-time business partner. The acquisition, terms of which were not disclosed, includes the business of the clients using the products as well as development and support staff from Benchmark.

“Benchmark is perhaps our closest, most collaborative partner, and we've been so involved in the development and potential of these products that we know the people like family and the products like the back of our hand,” DCI president and CEO John Jones said in the release.

DCI and Benchmark have been strategic partners since 1988.
