CompuServe Corp. and The Huntington National Bank have joined forces to bring new online banking services to CSi members. Beginning today, the Ohio-based company’s web bank, known as Huntington.com, will be directly available to more than 1.4 million CompuServe members in the United States.
CSi members will benefit from the convenience-oriented products and services Huntington.com offers for managing personal and business finances online. The site is divided into three sections. The first, Huntington Web Bank, describes personal and commercial products and allows customers to utilize planning tools and apply for Internet Banking. A second section, Corporate Information, features press and general information about the publicly held bank holding company. Rounding out the site, and providing the most functionality, is the expanded and improved Transaction Center. The center provides consumers with transactional capabilities, such as online bill paying and account reconciliation and reporting, in a secure environment.
“CSi’s core membership seeks access to high-utility products and services to accomplish important business and personal tasks, quickly and easily,” said Scott Gerber, senior manager for CompuServe. “The Huntington Web Bank extends choice and flexibility for members’ banking needs.”
“We’re proud to invite CSi members to experience banking at Huntington.com,” said William Randle, executive vice president and manager of Direct Access Financial Services for The Huntington. “CSi’s membership demographics closely mirror our target customer base, giving us access to a wonderful audience of prospective online banking clients.”
CSi members can access Huntington.com through the Personal Finance community or by using the GO:HNB command.
