Getting Started

Tipton Systems was officially born in 1988 but the concept formed long before the vision took shape.

Dan Tipton started his career in banking but found himself challenging the efficiency of the bank’s processes. He then spent many years selling core teller software to banks throughout the country.

After seeing how this software was revolutionizing the banking industry, Dan and his brother Bill Tipton, envisioned a world where community banks in their hometown of St. Louis could experience the benefits of technological advancements that the larger banks were thriving off of.

Armed with the knowledge that technology could help improve banks’ processes and enhance the customer experience, the brothers created Tipton Systems.

In the beginning, Tipton Systems started by selling and maintaining bank teller systems. As the years passed, our expertise and product lines grew.

Today we devote ourselves to helping customers implement technology that automates and improves the cash handling process. This automation increases efficiency and accuracy, and allows tellers to concentrate on improving the customer experience.

A lot has changed over the past 35 years, but our core value of delivering exceptional customer service will always remain.

Beginning a New Chapter

The Tipton Systems story is beginning a new chapter. Nick Michalas and Jesseca Willard acquired the company upon Dan and Bill’s retirement in 2022.

After having joined the Tipton Systems team in 2005, Nick and Jesseca received lots of mentoring by the founders before taking over the helm.

This is an exciting time for our company. Under new leadership we are broadening our product line, enhancing our team, and strengthening our relationships with our customers and partners.

The future of financial processes is here and we are ready to help you explore all the technology the world has to offer.
