Huntington Nation Bank to use ACI Proactive Risk Manager from ACI Worldwide; Mid-Atlantic Corporate Federal Credit Union to launch InteliData Technologies Corp.'s Electronic Bill Payment and Presentment solution; U.S. Bank redesigns its Internet banking site; Fleet Capital Leasing selects Leasing and Asset Management with mySAP CRM from SAP; South Dakota Credit Union League signs agreement to market SS&C Technologies Inc.'s internet-based products.

The Huntington Nation Bank, a subsidiary of Huntington Bancshares Inc., will begin to use ACI Proactive Risk Manager, created by ACI Worldwide, to help comply with recently enacted, anti-money laundering legislation.

The ACI Proactive Risk Manager has the ability to allow the bank to detect suspicious transactions so the account can be flagged and appropriate actions can be taken. The software now has improved analysis and review capabilities, which can expand the bank's fraud operations processing. The software also will allow analysts to process more suspicious alerts per hour.

"Keeping watch for fraudulent activity has always been a priority with Huntington--and our efforts are even more important in light of recent events," said Marilynn Wagner, senior vice president and director of corporate compliance for Huntington. "ACI's software will help us detect suspicious activity early so we can take necessary steps to stop it while protecting our legitimate customers."

U.S. Bank has redesigned its Internet banking site to include features such as account nicknames, a simplified transfer process and account details that are presented in a design that resembles a checkbook register.

Other new features on the site include a snapshot view of all accounts on a single screen, and account nicknames that erase the need for memorizing account numbers.

These recent changes are the part of a string of updates on the site in the past year. U.S bank has also created a place for consumers to open checking, savings accounts or a Certificate of Deposit (CD) online, pay their bills and download transactions to their financial management software.

"Our redesign makes it extremely easy to bank online, even if you're never done it before," said Barb Page, vice president of eBusiness at U.S. Bank who led the redesign project. "Most of the very tech-savvy consumers are already using U.S. Bank Internet Banking. Now, when the enhancements that have been implemented, we're confident that high users of ATMs and telephone banking will also find Internet Banking to be a valuable tool to manage day-to-day banking needs."
