Accuity, a provider of payment routing data, AML screening software and services, has launched Marketplace, an online resource that serves as a showcase for companies in which to connect with financial services buyers and decision-makers seeking their products or services.

Marketplace ( is essentially a platform on which companies can post their contact information (with hyperlinks to their website and email address), company logo, and a 100-word company description about their products and services in more than 150 categories. Visitors can solicit information from vendors that can be used for Requests For Proposals (RFP) to streamline the selection process and requests for more information.

Users can access Marketplace from several Accuity websites, including, and The new site is also part of Accuity Marketing Services solutions that also include advertising opportunities, lead development and a private label program.

Accuity officials believe that the Marketplace will benefit all involved, and it is certainly positioned to do so. Both the companies that list their offerings and the buyers who purchase their products and services now have an easy way in which to connect with one another. Marketplace, which sounds a lot like ThomasNet, should be a nice addition to Accuity's portfolio and should increase the company's profile in the financial services space.
