In Bankline we have a range of security features to put you in control and protect your business from fraud and cyber attacks:

  • Dual control features let you decide when two or more users will be needed to approve payments and changes to your profile
  • Set customised payment limits that work for your business and decide when extra levels of approval are required
  • An audit log captures all activities on an individual level. This can be tracked by users with the appropriate privileges.

You can set up your profile just how you need it, so it’s efficient, secure and mapped to your business. As your business changes, your Bankline profile can evolve with it. Key areas of customisation include: 

  • Creating users with different levels of access, so people can view and do just what they need to
  • Adding as many accounts as you like, including accounts for your other businesses
  • Setting your own payment limits that reflect the needs of your business 
  • Deciding where two-person authorisation is required for payments and changes to settings
  • Creating multiple administrators to manage your profile.

From getting your profile set up to supporting you day to day, we have a range of help available:
