Bankable’s Virtual Ledger Manager makes Global Finance Magazine’s ‘The Innovators 2016’ list for Transaction Services

New York/London – Bankable’s Virtual Ledger Manager solution has been recognised by Global Finance in their 2016 list of ‘The Innovators’ in Transaction Services.

Bankable shares this honour alongside established financial institutions. Amongst the 24 companies selected worldwide are 20 transaction banks and 4 technology enablers – including 3 in Europe (B2 Group, Basware and Bankable) and 1 in the United States (Ripple).

Such recognition facilitates in communicating our vision of continuously innovating our flexible propriety platform to provide innovative payment solutions, along with maintaining world-class technological standards for all our clients.

Bankable’s Virtual Ledger Manager (VLM) is an innovative virtual account solution enabling enhanced treasury management reconciliation for global corporates, insurers and financial institutions. The solution automates the reconciliation of inbound and outbound payments via virtual accounts – each identified by a unique virtual IBAN or reference number. VLM provides centralised access to corporate funds, allowing a company to mirror its internal organisational structure while controlling and streamlining its information and payment flows.

Much is being gained in speed and efficiency, but applications that improve information flows, thus enabling smarter decision-making, will ultimately deliver the greatest value,” commented Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance.

Bankable’s Virtual Ledger Manager is such a solution – delivering efficient, cost-effective and robust payment solutions.
