Simple New Account Platform (SNAP)

SNAP's web app technology, using an iPad, tablet or desktop computer, lets your staff completely and securely open accounts anywhere with Wi-Fi access in under 10 minutes.

SNAP is exactly what its name says - a Simple New Account Platform that enables you to recall or create new customer records, open accounts, and handle customer or account maintenance and document generation. SNAP integrates with the Jack Henry™ SilverLake® System.


Woman on Device

SNAP was born when one of our banking clients expressed his desire to open accounts quickly. To use an analogy, we built a dune buggy. It was super-fast and allowed the frontline to open a consumer account quickly. Then, the team asked if we could add a windshield, doors, nicer seats, air conditioning, power windows... and before we knew it, we had a deposit platform that offered integration and options beyond expectations!

As we worked with a few banks, we spent the next several years in design, development, programming, testing, production use, and refinements for what would become the best account opening platform in the market. As much as the team would enjoy taking credit for the amazing features, we must give credit to frontline bankers! Anytime a client would say "oh, that was user error" or "is there any way SNAP could address this issue?" our team went to work on a solution.

Today, SNAP enables banks like yours to leverage the power of technology to expedite the account opening process and simplify maintenance or customer service support while reducing costs and eliminating paperwork.

SNAP is a solution from Zelus Automation Platform, LLC, a company created by J Gillen & Associates to ensure a dedicated focus on software development, implementation, and client support. J Gillen & Associates is the same company that founded Pinnacle in 1997.


Unlike some technology, this Simple New Account Platform operates via servers in your network. The server interfaces directly with your core provider and key third-party vendors for account approval reviews, check orders, and more. SNAP can completely replace your current account opening system. The easy-to-use and intuitive app-driven process is based on your bank's processes and procedures, and its self-validating technology virtually eliminates errors and the need for follow-up quality control. SNAP's integration options allow frontline team members opening accounts to handle every step in the process from beginning to end, saving time and money.
