Real-time control and visibility

For the subscriber insurer requiring immediate access to payments and statements information, Multi-Bank provides a powerful dashboard:

  • Real-time cash and securities positions can be viewed from any grouping or perspective (by client, bank, account, country, portfolio etc), through a one-stop shop portal for all banking relationships
  • Cash positions and asset valuations are updated in real-time via automated upload of cash statements and statements of holdings from banks
  • Outgoing payments and orders can be controlled, with options for manual authorisation and different levels of user authority. The full lifecycle of the payment, from initiation by an insurer's internal system through to confirmation of execution by the bank, is shown in real-time.
  • And with Multi-Bank, the accuracy of information is guaranteed up-to-date, with real­ time alerts when transactions fail or the latest statements 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.

Multi-Bank is linked to a wide community of banks around the world for assets, payments and statements processing. For insurers wishing to pay out in different countries, Multi-Bank can adapt and route payments to different in country clearing systems (e.g. BACS, CHAPS or Faster Payments in the UK).

Supporting your Open Architecture

Subscribing to Multi-Bank means and insurer can rapidly on-board a new client that requires a new banking relationship. 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.
