CHICAGO and TROY, Mich., May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Chicago-based LaSalle Bank and Michigan-based Standard Federal Bank, both subsidiaries of LaSalle Bank Corporation, have substantially upgraded the online banking areas of their Web sites to make banking and paying bills online more efficient and easier than ever before.

LaSalle and Standard Federal introduced a number of free upgrades, including:

* The option to view check images online. An online banking customer can now click a check number in his/her deposit account history and see an image of the check.

* Enhanced account history pages. New features include a running account balance after each transaction on deposit accounts, transactions displayed in alternating colored grid lines to make viewing easier, separate debit and credit columns, one-click access to inquire about specific transactions, and the ability to search for transactions directly from history pages.

* The ability to create nicknames for deposit and loan accounts. This feature allows online banking customers to give their accounts personalized names, such as "John's College Savings."

* A new welcome page with consolidated views of deposit, loan, brokerage and investment accounts.

* The ability to login to online banking and bill pay directly from the banks' home pages.

* A new Pending Transfers page that allows customers to track and schedule transfers between accounts. This feature also makes it easier to make payments to LaSalle or Standard Federal loans or to ABN AMRO Mortgage Group, Inc. loans.

"We asked our customers what features they would like to see on our Web sites," said Lynn Orawiec, group senior vice president for LaSalle Bank Corporation. "Based on customer suggestions, we upgraded the sites to make them even more convenient and user friendly. LaSalle and Standard Federal customers receive online banking and bill pay free with all personal accounts," Orawiec continued, "and now benefit from upgrades designed to enhance their online banking experiences."

In addition to the new features, the LaSalle and Standard Federal Web sites were recently rated among the fastest in the industry.

LaSalle Bank National Association is based in Chicago with $63.7 billion in assets, $37.7 billion in deposits, more than 140 retail locations and 500 ATMs. LaSalle Bank is the second largest bank in Chicago. Subsidiaries include LaSalle National Leasing Corporation, LaSalle Business Credit, LLC and ABN AMRO Financial Services, Inc.

LaSalle Bank maintains commercial offices in Boca Raton, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New England (covering Connecticut, Boston and New Jersey), Pittsburgh, Des Moines, Rockford, Peoria, St. Louis, Tampa and Miami.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.
