Commerzbank receives TMI Innovation & Excellence Award 2014

Commerzbank has been successful in this year’s Treasury Management International (TMI) awards in the category: Technology Innovation Awards – Solution Innovation

Commerzbank’s winning solution is an online multi-banking application called Global Payment Plus (GPP). The payment transaction solution helps companies to overcome borders by making it easier for them to manage all of their global bank accounts in the relevant national format from a single application.

What really sets Commerzbank’s solution apart from other technology is this combination of the multi-banking function in a web-based application,  meaning corporate clients can retrieve information on all of their accounts (both with Commerzbank and other third-party banks), process them centrally, and manage their transactions worldwide, anytime, anywhere.

The TMI awards for Innovation & Excellence are firmly established as the quality benchmark for the treasury profession, formally recognising banks, vendors, consultants and practitioners who are defining new frontiers and driving best practices in treasury management globally.
