Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, today announced that Bell State Bank & Trust, headquartered in Fargo, N.D., with assets over $2.6 billion, has deployed Mobiliti™ from Fiserv. Using Mobiliti, Bell State Bank & Trust will provide customers with a broad range of up-to-the minute mobile banking capabilities, including the ability to pay bills, pay other people and deposit checks from their smartphones.
In addition to offering standard mobile banking capabilities such as account balance access, an ATM locater and alerts, Bell State is making its mobile banking service even more functional with the addition of payment and deposit capabilities. The Mobiliti mobile banking service integrates with the bank’s CheckFree® RXP® bill payment service from Fiserv, making it possible for customers to securely pay bills, and will soon integrate with the Popmoney® person-to-person payment service, allowing customers to send payments directly to other people from their mobile banking account. The bank also implemented Mobile Source Capture™ so customers can easily deposit checks by snapping a picture with their smartphones.
Currently, Bell State Bank customers can access their mobile accounts via text (SMS), web browsers and iPhone® or Android™ apps. The bank also plans to add an iPad® app for tablet banking.
“Mobile banking makes our customers’ lives easier by giving them another convenient option for banking how they want, when they want,” said Bill Russell, executive vice president, Retail Banking, Bell State Bank & Trust. “With Mobiliti, we’re making it possible for customers to not only access information from their mobile devices, but to also complete transactions from them - it’s like having the bank in your hand.”
Bell State Bank & Trust also uses Corillian Online® banking from Fiserv, ensuring a cohesive user experience across their digital channels.
“Bell State Bank & Trust was looking for a second generation mobile banking solution that would support growing, in-demand services such as mobile payments, deposits and tablet banking,” said Erich Litch, division president, Digital Channels, Fiserv. “With Mobiliti, customers can enjoy a user experience tailored to their device, whether it is a feature phone, a smartphone or a tablet, and complete a wide range of transactions right from their trusted Bell State Bank & Trust account.”
