In less than a month after the soft launch of Security Service Federal Credit Union’s (SSFCU) mobile app, more than 7,000 members have signed up and logged in on their iPhones and Androids. With the introduction of myBranch Mobile, members can now use their phones to check account balances, 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.
"Our plan is to keep developing relevant mobile functionality as fast as we can to keep pace with our members’ on-the-go digital lifestyles," says Mike Chapman, chief operating officer and executive vice president for SSFCU.
There are several safety features built in 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. The ability to remotely deposit checks will be added to the iPhone and Android apps later this year.
SSFCU myBranch Mobile is available for download for iPhone and Android, as well as in a mobile browser version.
