Our Story

We developed the Square 1 Credit Suite® because as veterans of the commercial and agricultural lending industry, we have been in your shoes.

Suntell was founded in 1996 by bankers, who were tired of the labor intensiveness of every single step of the collection and analyzing of financial data, of servicing a loan portfolio, and managing the collections of problem loans.  There were checklists for everything and duplicate data entry across multiple disparate systems.

Our goal is to help community lending institutions of all sizes build a sound lending program through an integrated piece of software.  A single solution, for all lending functions.

As financial industry professionals, we have worked as lenders, as operations managers, as credit analysts, and as loan support staff.  We have made a commitment to delivering a superior commercial and agricultural loan risk management software solution.  Our success is in knowing that community banks and credit unions across the United States are benefiting from our products through better asset quality, strong safety and soundness regulatory examinations, and better workflow efficiency.

We knew there had to be a better way.

That’s why we pioneered the Loan Management System (LMS) for maximum productivity.  From there, we added Suntell Document Imaging (SDI) for borrower, loan, and deposit documents; AgExam for agricultural analysis; Stress Tests to better assess your risk; and Loan Queue and Dashboards for workflow management.  Together, these components resulted in the Square 1 Credit Suite®. We use our skills and subject matter expertise to continue to develop and enhance our products to be responsive to the industry and feedback from our valued customers.
