First Union National Bank is among the financial institutions that recently have licensed StaffSmart, a Windows-based resource planning tool.
First Union chose StaffSmart version 3.5 for more than 2,400 branches. The software is available from the Demos Consulting Group.
"Demos Consulting's StaffSmart 3.5 appealed to us for its ease of use and because our previous system, as well as many of the other systems we considered, did not provide the reporting or level of functionality that StaffSmart delivers," said First Union vice president Todd Johnson.
"The switch to StaffSmart by First Union is evidence that Demos Consulting is proving its reputation for having the most powerful bank capacity and resource management solutions available," said John D. Keogh, program marketing director at Demos Consulting.
Other institutions that have committed themselves to StaffSmart include: Frost National Bank of San Antonio; MidAmerica Federal Savings Bank of Clarendon Hills, Ill.; California Federal Savings Bank of San Francisco; and UMB Bank of Kansas City, Mo.
