BCSG has been selected as the Most Innovative Industry Partner by a distinguished panel of judges at Barlow Research Associates’ Monarch Innovation Awards
BCSG’s Business Hub is a flexible platform that allows financial institutions to deepen engagement with small business customers through use of market leading business management tools.
For $25 per month, customers can access leading online accounting software, a website builder, a business planning tool, a legal document creator and a data backup and sharing application.
