LASCO ANNOUNCES NEW ATM PARTNERSHIP

 

Lasco is pleased to announce our new strategic partnership with Edge One, a recognized leader in ATM, ITM and TCR solutions for the financial services industry.  To better serve the needs of Lasco’s financial institution client base, Lasco researched many vendors to partner with for ATM-related products and services.  Edge One, headquartered in Stoughton WI, was a natural fit due to the close alignment of our two companies philosophies and detailed attention to serving customer needs.  A kick-off event to share information about both companies and how we plan to work together was held for interested financial institutions on October 6 in Marquette.

Financial institutions with locations in Michigan and Wisconsin gathered in Marquette to learn about our newest strategic partnership, hear presentations on ATM, ITM and TCR applications, participate in product demonstrations and gain insights into the future growth of technologies related to automated transactions.  Jim Stanger, Edge One Vice President, shared details surrounding the many benefits of incorporating automated transaction technologies into a financial institution’s customer service strategy.

Edge One’s commitment to serving customers in a timely and professional manner is evident by the strength of their service team, a commitment that Lasco recognized and highly values.  Two Edge One equipment service technicians are located in the Marquette area to cover the central Upper Peninsula.  Technicians are also strategically located in northern Wisconsin and northern Michigan to provide more efficient service to the far eastern and western areas of the U.P.  Overall, Edge One has over three dozen service personnel throughout Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois.

EIGHTH ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF OUTING

Lasco proudly co-sponsored the 8th Annual Charity Golf Outing in Sault Ste Marie at Tanglewood Marsh Golf Course on June 7th.  The event was jointly sponsored by vendor partners that provide services to community banks in the Upper Peninsula region.   Associated Bank, BOSC, Inc., Charter, Enterprise Systems Group, FIS, First Service Corporation, The Form House and Lasco all collaborated to hold the event.

The participants and sponsors enjoyed the opportunity to spend a day together on the golf course while raising funds for a local Sault Ste Marie charity organization, Road to Recovery.  A total of 57 golfers played a scramble format at Tanglewood with several additional participants joining the group for dinner and networking after the day’s golf round concluded.   Congratulations to all the winners from the day’s golf competition.

The biggest winners of the day were the Road to Recovery program and the cancer patients the non-profit supports.  Outing attendees made contributions totaling more than $3,000 dollars which were presented to Jazell Raycraft from Road to Recovery at the event’s dinner and awards program. Road to Recovery provides free transportation for residents of the Eastern Upper Peninsula to Petoskey for needed cancer treatments.   This is accomplished by the commitment of 40 volunteer drivers during a time when the cancer patients may not otherwise be able to travel on their own due to the cost or exhaustion caused by their treatments.  The donations collected will be used towards the purchase of a van and the associated fuel and maintenance expenses.

Special appreciation goes to Mark Savoie of Central Savings Bank for serving as this year’s local event coordinator, to Melissa Murphy of Lasco for handling registration and organizing the day’s activities, and finally to the staff of Tanglewood Marsh for hosting the golf outing.
