Brookfield, Wis. - Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, today announced that San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU), a $5.4 billion financial institution, is now offering a full range of mobile banking capabilities with Mobiliti(TM) and Mobile Source Capture(TM) from Fiserv. Members can securely access their financial information via their choice of SMS (text messaging), mobile browser and downloadable applications. A robust set of capabilities includes features such as checking balances, locating ATMs, receiving alerts, paying bills, transferring funds and depositing checks using camera-equipped smartphones.
"We offer the latest products and services to ensure SDCCU is a place where members can turn for all their financial needs," said Teresa Halleck, President and Chief Executive Officer of SDCCU. "Our members expressed specific interest in upgraded mobile functionality, including text-based mobile banking and additional smartphone applications. Fiserv has enabled us to consistently deliver innovative services to our members, and we are confident that the technology we put in place has the flexibility to accommodate our members' current and future needs."
With members placing increasing importance on interacting through digital channels, SDCCU decided to offer a comprehensive triple-play mobile solution with increased functionality and additional points of entry. Mobile banking is now available to members via all three major mobile access modes: SMS (text messaging), mobile browser and downloadable applications for Android(TM), iPhone® and BlackBerry®. Members can access a full range of capabilities, and can more closely monitor and manage their finances by signing up for alerts that notify them of specific events such as low balances or large withdrawals.
Mobiliti integrates with the credit union's online banking platform, Corillian Online® from Fiserv. The integration is designed to provide a streamlined and consistent user experience across both the online and mobile channels. The credit union is also offering Mobile Source Capture, a downloadable application for camera-equipped smartphones that allows users to securely take a picture of the front and back of a check and deposit the item electronically, without having to make a trip to the branch or ATM.
"Consumers are increasingly gravitating toward mobile financial services, and for more than just checking balances," said Erich Litch, division president, Digital Channels, Fiserv. "We're seeing fast growth in transactions such as mobile bill payment, and depositing checks using a smartphone is especially appealing to members who rarely visit a branch. In partnership with Fiserv, SDCCU is able to provide a complete mobile package that fulfills the needs of a wide variety of its members."
San Diego County Credit Union has been a Fiserv client since 1996. In addition to Corillian Online, Mobiliti and Mobile Source Capture, the credit union also uses Fiserv solutions for electronic bill payments and person-to-person payments.
