Established Round Rock Glass Company Relies on Independent Bank
Commercial and residential glass experts Anchor-Ventana Glass have been serving the Austin region since 1977. This family owned, family managed company is experienced in all types of glass applications. They boast the largest, most innovative showroom in Central Texas and have a reputation for their unique ability to bring the design-build concept into each project.
After nearly 40 years, President and Owner Felix Munson understands offering great products through a talented team of installers is important. However maintaining strong, long-term relationships has been their key to success.
A Competitive Edge
Relationship driven banking is also key to the personal bankers at Independent Bank. With an established client lenders don’t need to reinvent the wheel during a new product or service inquiry. Gathering documentation and repetitively vetting an organization can be a time consuming, lengthy process. This process may be dramatically streamlined depending upon the relationship.
Not being “too big” has its advantages as well. Community banks similar in size to Independent Bank typically fund projects for small and medium-sized organizations. Larger national chains often attempt to steer smaller clients towards generic, pre-packaged financial products that are not always well-suited to their project.
Williamson County Area President Michael Doss is a valued business resource for Felix Munson. Anchor-Ventana Glass has been a client for approximately 18 months, and the two men regularly discuss the financial challenges and issues faced by small businesses.
So far Independent Bank has been able to implement cash management tools, and other banking products and services to help simplify and increase control over incoming funds and account balances.
By providing a working capital line of credit, Independent Bank has helped Anchor-Ventana Glass expand into new markets and offer a wider range of products than ever before.
Maintaining strong ties within the community, networking and knowing how people and businesses fit together is a big part of community banking. Michael Doss works hard to help his client’s business grow and thrive, and for Anchor-Ventana Glass he has tried to help them grow by referring the company to contractors and new construction projects in the market whenever possible.
Deeper Decision Making
Plato once mused, “A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.”
Throughout the lending industry, financial data typically forms the bedrock of any decision. At Independent Bank our first course of action is getting to know the people behind the business. We want to understand the intangibles as well as the sales projections.
In addition, decisions are made at a local level, by people from your community that fully understand the local economy.
