Wednesday, June 13, 2012 10:00 AM

Bank of America Merrill Lynch today received a 2012 Model Bank award from Celent, the financial services research and consulting firm, for the development and deployment of its global payments hub, CashPro® Payments. The service, introduced in late 2011, utilizes a sophisticated payment infrastructure to provide BofA Merrill clients with integrated global payments connectivity around the world.

Through CashPro Payments, clients can initiate several types of payments through a single application. CashPro Payments delivers streamlined workflow with enhanced straight-through processing, rule validation, global routing codes, competitive foreign exchange rates, local languages, customizable display and ad hoc, template and file-import-based payment processing.

The Model Bank award was presented to BofA Merrill today during Celent’s fifth-annual Banking Innovation & Insight Day in Charlotte.

“Bank of America Merrill Lynch was chosen as a Model Bank for its CashPro Payments initiative because it delivered a marked improvement in the customer experience alongside dramatic savings for the bank through straight-through processing,” said Bob Meara, senior analyst with Celent's Banking Group. “Moreover, it was implemented in a complex, multi-country, multi-payment environment."

CashPro Payments is part of CashPro Online, BofA Merrill’s worldwide client access channel that delivers banking services through a single portal and password.

“We developed CashPro Online based on close consultation with our clients, and CashPro Payments is a big part of our shared vision for the industry’s best banking experience,” said Cindy Murray, head of Infrastructure, Platforms and eCommerce for BofA Merrill Global Treasury Solutions. “We are honored that Celent has recognized CashPro Payments as a differentiator in the eCommerce marketplace.”
