Merrill Lynch was honored for its enterprise-wide alignment of multiple customer interaction channels and the resulting increase in client engagement and satisfaction, according to a release.

"Our business revolves around the quality and consistency of client experiences, be they online, in banking centers, through ATMs or mobile banking, or via call centers, email or direct mail," said Dean Athanasia, head of Bank of America Global Wealth & Investment Management (GWIM) Banking and Merrill Edge. "We've gone beyond traditional customer relationship management strategies to deliver added value at each and every touch point, creating a more personalized experience for our clients."

Bank of America and Merrill Lynch connected banking and investment insights through the recent release of its Merrill Edge service.
