Business Digital Banking

The benefit of Business Digital Banking is that a business owner/member can authorize sub-users of online banking such as a bookkeeper or accountant whom which do not need to be authorized signers on the membership.  They can set specific permissions, roles, and limits for each sub-user.  Unique credentials are created to prevent the sharing of usernames and passwords. Allowing for oversight and security.
