Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Politzer & HANEY

    BOSTON, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive Release/ -- Politzer & HANEY
 announces that Pittsburgh-based PNC Treasury Management will add a
 comprehensive suite of Politzer & HANEY products to the current array of
 online cash management services available to corporate clients through PNC's
 Internet Service Center. The Internet Service Center offers PNC Bank's clients
 unique client servicing features; Information Reporting; A/R Advantage, PNC's
 Bank's image-based receivables management product, and a commercial card
 reporting and allocation service. Through the Politzer & HANEY software, PNC
 Bank will offer enhanced cash management functionality including ACH
 Origination, which is already in production.  Scheduled for implementation are
 Stop Payments, Positive Pay, Image Inquiry, and Wire Payments, all of which
 are included in Politzer & HANEY's new UNIX-based CorPoint product line.  PNC
 Bank's online services can be packaged and scaled based on market size and
 need.
     As a part of these services, PNC Bank's corporate clients will also have
 single sign-on functionality allowing for 24/7 access through one secure
 online portal using a standard industry PC browser. Taking advantage of
 business banking services over the Internet allows PNC Bank's customers to
 avoid the time and cost of installing and upgrading software.
     Lynn Nettleton, vice president/product group manager of Electronic
 Delivery Solutions at PNC Bank Treasury Management, says CorPoint's product
 line and its flexibility will allow PNC Bank to develop closer working
 relationships with its client base by offering those services that relate
 specifically to individual or market segment needs.
     "The flexibility and depth of the Politzer & HANEY product line were what
 we needed to support our strategic direction for the Internet Service Center,"
 Nettleton said.  "Politzer & HANEY's partnerships with other large
 institutions and ability to work with us in integrating with our back-end
 systems and the Internet Service Center led to our decision to select them as
 our vendor of choice."
     "Through the strength of our product functionality, now in its fourth
 generation and developed with Enterprise Java Beans technology, experienced
 people and solid technology direction, we believe we've put PNC Bank Treasury
 Management in a position to attract more corporate clients through an
 Internet-based solution," said Ralph Dangelmaier, senior vice president,
 sales, marketing and services at Politzer & HANEY.  "We plan for this to be a
 long term business relationship.  With their Internet Service Center, PNC Bank
 is now better equipped to take advantage of the opportunities in the corporate
 banking market and further strengthen its position as one of the nation's
 leading treasury management banks."
