Traditionally, small business clients have tended to fall through the cracks at financial institutions. Lacking the purchasing power to take advantage of electronic wholesale banking products and services, small businesses have generally been directed instead tothe limited services offered to retail customers, explains Meredith Hickman, an analyst in Celents e-banking group. The Internet presents banks with an opportunity to electronically service small businesses with appropriate products and services both in and outside of their branch network at a reasonable cost to both the business and the bank. In addition to profiling the vendor solutions, the report covers trends and strategies for the future, including deploying small business portals, implementing online one-to-one marketing campaigns, and adding other wireless devices to the delivery channel line-up.
