Investment bank Merrill Lynch is to use customer relationship management software to offer corporate customers tailored investment information online.
Merrill Lynch will implement software from ATG later this year to improve services on its Benefits OnlineSM website for retirement plan sponsors, such as Coca-Cola and their employees.
