the global leader in cloud–based testing, monitoring and analytics for
mobile and web, today announced the results of the 2014 Small Business
Banker Scorecard. In the latest edition of the Small Business Banker
Scorecard, Bank of America takes first place for the second year running.
The Scorecard evaluates the online small business banking offerings of
the seven largest banks in the U.S. (Bank of America; Capital One;
Chase; Citibank; PNC; U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo). It ranks and
benchmarks their digital offerings to support key small business
customer tasks across four performance categories of Functionality, Ease
of Use, Privacy & Security and Quality & Availability.
”We are delighted to achieve top honors in Keynote’s annual Small
Business Banker Scorecard for the second year in a row,” said David
Solis, National Sales Executive for Small Business Specialized Sales,
Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “Providing our small business clients
with the resources they need to help them succeed – whether online, via
mobile, by phone, or in one of our banking centers – is what motivates
us every day. Being recognized by a trusted third-party like Keynote
provides great validation of the convenience and comprehensive banking
solutions we offer to small business owners.”

The Keynote Small Business Banker Scorecard is a fact-based, competitive
benchmarking study designed to help retail banks identify strengths and
opportunities in acquiring and servicing small business consumers
through digital channels based on industry best practices. The Scorecard
is published annually and focuses on the online banking needs of U.S.
small businesses generally under $1 million in revenue. It evaluates
public website content targeted towards small business owners and
managers, as well as optional capabilities, such as money movement,
designed to work within or supplement small business digital banking.
Also considered were premium services available within the baseline
banking offering or available separately, but which don’t entail
upgrading to a different account management platform. These were all
measured across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. Scores are out of
100, based upon: Functionality; Ease of Use; Privacy & Security; Quality
“The online banking platform continues to be one of the most competitive
areas for banks looking to differentiate themselves, especially when it
comes to the robust and rapidly growing small business banking market,”
comments Ben Rushlo, VP, Analytics at Keynote. “Bank of America was able
to once again score highest in the Small Business Banker Scorecard by
continuing to provide its small business clients with the highest levels
of both Functionality and Ease of Use.”
