The more you know about your accounts, the more money you save. We'll track your monthly balances and activities and figure your total cost of services. Collected balances earn you credit which is used to offset the cost of the account and potentially of other related accounts.
Detailed reports help you manage your funds more efficiently and identify the balance levels you need to maintain in order to offset bank charges. This is a service for accounts with high volumes and businesses that take advantage of the specialized cash management services of the bank.
A sweep account is a bank account that automatically transfers amounts that exceed, or fall short of, a certain level into a higher interest-earning investment option at the close of each business day.
Tri-Party Agreements provide collateralized protection for organizations who qualify.
If your business regularly receives deposits from certain multiple sources or areas, this automated account system makes it easy to track deposits by location or purpose. Specially coded deposit slips allow all deposits to go into one account and give you itemized information for better account control.
Zero Balance Accounts (ZBAs)
Automatically consolidate funds from several accounts into one account to save you time and effort. Money from ZBAs is electronically transferred to a "concentration" account at the end of each day, leaving a zero balance. Check payments are drawn from the concentration account. You don't worry about being overdrawn.

Clients who utilize our Commercial Card program have the ability to leverage our Card Expense Management tool. This tool allows you to place more oversight and controls around your business card program.
