Banks and Financial Services

Today’s banking and financial world is more complex than ever. As increasing numbers of banks and financial institutions merge and acquire new branches, these companies confront significant challenges in unifying their disparate security systems across locations—often across the country. At the same time, protecting people and assets against loss, liability and crime remain a top priority. NAVCO partners with leading banks and financial institutions to integrate enterprise security systems, ensuring our financial customers’ investments deliver long-term value.

For over 40 years, NAVCO has been helping banking and financial industries protect trillions of dollars in assets with the most strategic combination of electronic security systems, backed by expert service and support. We bring together the latest corporate security solutions, customized to meet our financial customers’ current and future needs.

More than identifying the best combination of services, we make sure they work together to provide consistency and uniform standards across multiple sites, branches and locations. At the same time, we pave the way for next-generation technologies that deliver long-term value.

Download this Case Study

The Challenge:

In 2008, Chase managed assets exceeding $2 trillion, had more than 200,000 employees and was poised to add 3,000 new banking sites through consolidation. A leading global financial services firm, Chase recognized the acquisition presented excellent business potential, but logistical challenges, as well as possible increased expenses, also loomed ahead.

At the time, Chase was partnered with multiple vendors to handle its integrated security system requirements and was looking at significant costs from hiring more human resources to manage them all. Chase needed a single, convenient and consistent source for their video security system requirements, and they needed it now.

The Solution:

Fortunately Chase didn’t have to search too far for the perfect solution. NAVCO had been working with them as one of their security system vendors for over 20 years. Impressed with NAVCO’s track record of delivering superior service, Chase turned to them to step up to the challenge and become a primary security vendor.

In response to the unique challenges, NAVCO built a custom 5-member “dream” team specifically for Chase. The team includes a project manager, account managers and security specialists to handle the all-encompassing maintenance contract and the 5-year equipment replacement program. Team members are also experts in compliance issues and privacy laws inherent in the banking industry.

The Results:

As a new single source, NAVCO provides consistency and uniform standards for Chase’s security systems across multiple sites, including the newly added locations. And NAVCO's team smoothed the transition for branch and security employees. Additionally, Chase realized significant savings by eliminating the need to hire additional employees to manage multiple vendors. NAVCO's proactive approach ensured each site’s security system was up and running on schedule and to Chase’s high standards.

Today, Chase operates a staggering 5,574 branch locations and 16,100 ATMs nationwide. NAVCO’s “dream” team provides unrivaled service for 49 corporate locations and 8,300 branch and ATM locations across the country. Looking ahead with NAVCO as their security partner, this year approximately 1,650 Chase branches are slated to receive new state-of-the-art equipment as part of the 5-year equipment replacement program.

BNY Mellon Trusts NAVCO with Branch and Corporate Building Security

Established in 2007 from the merger of Mellon Financial Corporation and The Bank of New York Company, Inc., BNY Mellon is a leading investment management and investment services company, uniquely focused to help clients manage and move their financial assets and succeed in the rapidly changing global marketplace. Headquartered in New York, BNY Mellon has $25.8 trillion in assets under custody or administration and $1.26 trillion under management.

NAVCO had been operating as a trusted partner of Bank of New York since 1989, so when BNY and Mellon Financial Corporation merged to form BNY Mellon, NAVCO was the natural choice. Initially, NAVCO was brought in to help secure ATM sites, but over the years branch security and corporate building coverage have all been implemented and maintained by NAVCO.

Since 1989, NAVCO has been awarded more than $2,000,000 worth of BNY/Mellon electronic security-related project work, which is a true testimony to the mutually beneficial relationship that continues today.

NAVCO’s cutting-edge, forward-thinking technology and superior customer service has kept BNY Mellon a satisfied business partner. The professionalism of the NAVCO sales and service teams make it an easy decision for BNY Mellon to continuously renew their relationship with NAVCO.
