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
