Security Service Federal Credit Union Launches Mobile App for Tablets
July 30, 2014 SAN ANTONIO, TX
Security Service Federal Credit Union’s (SSFCU) has released a new banking app designed for tablets, compatible with both iPad and Android. With the introduction of myBranch Tablet Banking, members can now use both smartphones and tablets to check account balances, make mobile deposits, get transaction details, pay bills and transfer funds. The app also includes a GPS-based locator that provides details on the nearest branch or ATM.
More than 110,000 members have signed up for SSFCU's myBranch Mobile for smartphones since it launched just over a year ago. "Our members have made it clear that they want us to continue to develop relevant mobile functionality to keep pace with their on-the-go digital lifestyles," says Mike Chapman, chief operating officer and executive vice president for SSFCU. "Tablet banking just makes sense,” he adds, “especially given that tablet sales are expected to outpace both desktop and laptop sales as soon as next year."
There are several safety features built into the new app including the ability to send an alert when a charge to a credit card or ATM withdrawal exceeds a certain amount or when an account balance gets low.
