Ninemsn Launches Account Master

[Sydney, AUSTRALIA] Australia portal ninemsn has announced an alliance with account aggregation technology provider Parkers' Edge, to launch a new service called Account Master.

According to ninemsn, the launch of this service makes them the first major portal to offer consumers single sign-on access to all online banking accounts, broking accounts, airline loyalty programs and e-mail.

Ninemsn's chief executive officer Steve Vamos said the service would be available on ninemsn from early next year. "We are excited to pioneer Account Master to enhance our customer experience by allowing them to access all of their financial and accounting information in one place," he said.

Parkers' Edge said the capacity to provide consumers with the ability to consolidate data from multiple Web sites was a major leap forward for the Australian marketplace.

"Customers can manage their interest more effectively, and we believe this service is a huge competitive advantage for ninemsn," said chief executive officer Janet Parker.

Parkers' Edge is the creator and owner of the nettposition data aggregation service operated out of the company's Centurion Data Centre in Sydney. The company has also implemented nine Internet banking systems for customers including the Commonwealth Bank, ANZ and BankWest.
