SEB is enhancing its e-banking service for companies through the introduction of a corporate portal, www.seb.se/foretag that will offer several new services. The service will be open to all companies. Through this initiative, SEB aims to make it easier for small- and medium-sized corporate customers to make use of these financial services, while simultaneously managing and developing their own companies. In addition to the new corporate portal, SEB is also starting e-line - a personalised corporate advisory function that is open seven days a week. This means that SEB e-banking for companies today offers the most extensive range of corporate services in the market.
The corporate portal provides customers with access to financial analyses ranging from SEB's reports on Sweden's economic climate to interest-rate and currency information and the situation in growth markets. Customers are also provided with financial news and daily morning reports from SEB on expectations during the day, a summary of the day's newspaper reports and interest- and currency-exchange rates.
Through the SEB corporate advisory function, customers can use an interactive encyclopaedia to obtain guidance and tips about marketing, accounting, financing and other specialised areas that small and medium-sized companies often require assistance with.
A special link-library enables corporate customers to access the 200-300 best corporate sites that specialise in corporate information.
Through e-line, customers are provided with a corporate advisory service via telephone that is open seven days a week. The service is designed to advise customers on investment, financing, corporate insurance and personnel matters.
"SEB is now taking the first step towards offering corporate customers advanced advisory services via the Internet. We recognise that many small- and medium-sized companies often suffer from a lack of time and resources. Our aim is therefore to function as their advisory partners, while also assisting them with financial services via the Net," says Claes-Johan Thureson, Head of MidCorporate within SEB
