IMM, the only eSignature provider specializing in eSignature and digital transaction solutions exclusively for financial institutions, and Superior IRA & HSA (Superior) an industry fintech firm specializing in depository Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) solutions for community banks and credit unions, today announced a strategic partnership to integrate IMM’s premiere eSignature platform, IMM eSign, with Superior’s modern IRA and HSA cloud-native, technology solution.

Superior’s President and Managing Partner, Kevin Boyles, said, “We are redefining the technology and service methodology of the IRA and HSA support space for banks and credit unions. We are pleased to partner with IMM, a like-minded organization, that shares our goal to provide progressive technology solutions that create a more modern, frictionless experience for the financial institution, as well as their members and customers. Collectively our teams have decades of experience working with banks and credit unions exclusively and therefore have a unique understanding of the daily operations, the stringent regulatory requirements and perhaps most importantly, the ever-evolving needs of today’s consumer.”
Both IMM and Superior remain committed to providing technology solutions designed to help community financial institutions operate more efficiently, comply with regulatory requirements, as well as provide an exceptional experience for consumers. Key highlights of the integrated solution include:
- Automated complex procedures;

- Enhanced auditing and risk management practices.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Superior to provide banks and credit unions with a next-generation solution that not only reduces costs and drives efficiencies throughout a traditionally tedious and complex paper-based process, but more importantly, improves the overall customer experience and meets the increasing demands of today’s consumer,” said Michael Ball, senior vice president of markets and strategy.
