GREEN BAY, Wis., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Associated Bank announced today that it released FX Manager, a state-of-the-art, online processing system to support its growing Foreign Exchange (FX) business.

FX Manager offers Associated clients convenient and secure online access to a full range of Foreign Exchange services right from their own PC.

"This technology offers the most comprehensive and functional solution for our clients' foreign exchange processing online," said Donald Lloyd, director of capital markets, Associated Bank. "Associated customers will enjoy integrated foreign exchange and treasury management services with single sign-in access through eManager+ Business Online Banking."

FX Manager enables clients to obtain real-time quotes, monitor rates and transact Spot/Forward/Swaps in over 50 different currency pairs, allowing direct currency payments to third parties and split currency payments among multiple payees.  FX Manager provides fast, convenient settlement processing and complete transaction management all from the convenience of your office.

Single, sign-in access from eManager+ provides strong, layered authentication to help prevent unauthorized access.  And, OOBA (Out-of-Band Authentication) provides additional, multi-factor authentication by allowing authorized users to verify themselves by phone.

Associated Commercial Banking client, Joe Capito with Ivarson Inc., recently accessed Associated's new FX Manager system.  "Rather than picking up the phone to call the bank, I went in online through eManager+, accessed FX Manager and then purchased Swedish Kroner (SEK) to pay an invoice," said Capito.  "The system worked flawlessly."
