Bank of America Takes First Place - Second Year in a Row - in 2014 Keynote Small Business Banker Scorecard

Keynote, 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.”

To view the complete scoring results, and for further details visit the Keynote blog.

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 & Availability.

“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.”
