For the Corporate Treasurer looking for bank-independent automated payments processing and enterprise-wide real-time cash visibility and forecasting, The B2 Group offers its award winning Multi-Bank Integrator service.

Real-Time Control and Visibility

For the subscriber corporate operating either without a full TMS or already using a TMS but requiring immediate access to payments and statements information, Multi-Bank provides a powerful dashboard:

  • Real-time cash positions can be viewed from any grouping or perspective (by bank, account, country, subsidiary etc), streamlining cash management efficiency for any size of company, from a single entity with one bank to a multi-national with numerous subsidiaries and banking relationships around the world.
  • Intra-day positions are updated in real-time, with incoming credit and debits providing a forecast for the day's closing balance and free cash visibility. A powerful rules engine enables configuration of complex business logic such as cash pooling and sweeping across accounts and banks.
  • Outgoing payments can be controlled, with options for manual authorisation and different levels of user authority. The full lifecycle of the payment, from initiation by an ERP or TMS through to confirmation of execution by the bank, is shown in real-time.
  • And with Multi-Bank, the accuracy of balance information is guaranteed, with real­ time alerts when statements or intra-day messages are missing.
Accessible Anywhere

Access to the Multi-Bank dashboard and payments control functions is via the secure B2 Real-Time Console portal, which can be viewed from most devices, including laptop's, tablet's and Smartphones (Android or iPhones). Log in is secure, using an app to generate one-time entry codes that lapse after a short period of time.

Banking Community

Multi-Bank is linked to a wide community of banks around the world for payments and statements processing. Where a bank is not currently linked, such is the power and flexibility of Multi-Bank that new banks can be on-boarded quickly and easily, regardless of the bank's required connectivity mechanism and message formats.

Complete Flexibility

Multi-Bank can also accommodate any message format transformation (e.g. mapping from SWIFT MT or 1S020022 into the subscriber corporate's internal format).

Connectivity with Multi-Bank be via any mechanism, from SWIFT, host-to-host file based exchanges, or using non-structured data such as PDF's. For the latter, The B2 Group also provides a Multi-Media Gateway, which automatically converts non-standard document formats to and from any data file format (for example a PDF into an MT940 structure).

Multi-Bank operates seamlessly with any TMS, ERP or other accounting or treasury system (including a corporate's in-house built platforms).
