JP Morgan Treasury Services has launched the next generation of JP Morgan ACCESS, an online, electronic banking (e-banking) portal for corporate clients.
The new portal provides treasury and investment professionals worldwide with a secure, single point of access to effectively manage their treasury operations online. The next generation includes integrated payment and reporting capabilities and unique attributes for user administration, allowing clients a more efficient use of time while simultaneously improving their control environment. It also features a new online user community, providing a single location for user learning and interaction.
“In speaking with our clients over the past several years, they consistently indicated that they were looking for greater efficiency and a way to save time,” said Lloyd O’Connor, managing director, JP Morgan Treasury Services. “The next generation of JP Morgan ACCESS was born from those conversations.
“We re-envisioned what the client experience looked like end-to-end and created a platform that responds to what our corporate clients want. Every decision was made with their needs in mind, and we believe the outcome is a product that will fulfill their needs for efficiency, control and accessibility.”
The next generation’s advanced administrative capabilities build upon what is a mission-critical, but historically time-consuming process. User set-up and entitlement management is now reduced from hours, sometime days, to minutes by simplifying the process and providing a unique grouping capability allowing multiple changes to be made simultaneously. Administrators are able to view all user entitlements from a single screen – by user, account, or product, providing a better and more streamlined experience.
The next generation of JP Morgan ACCESS will be featured during the annual
Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) conference
, held at Miami Beach Convention Centre, Florida from 14-17 October.

Due to the low interest rate environment and Basel III regulation many corporate treasurers, who may have in the past been very reliant on the banking sector to provide them with cash management solutions, have been forced to explore alternative options as banks have been refusing short dated cash deposits.
As the May 25 deadline for Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) inches closer, many treasurers are being lumped with the task of ensuring their wider company is compliant.
