FirstBank, a $2.2 billion-asset unit of First South Bancorp Inc. in Lexington, Tenn., has agreed to use the i-Remit service from eGistics Inc. for its check processing and wholesale lockbox lines of business, the Dallas archive hosting service announced Monday.

FirstBank is using the archive to store checks, remittance stubs and correspondence, eGistics said.

"By providing on-demand access to images and data, the eGistics archive helps our lockbox clients make faster and better cash management decisions," Bobby Price, a vice president at FirstBank, said in the vendor's announcement.
