Conestoga Bank is committed to harnessing technology to make banking more convenient.
Chester Springs, PA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
Conestoga Bank, a full-service community bank with branches throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, unveiled its suite of mobile banking services today. The three platforms—a smartphone app, a mobile web service, and a text banking service—will allow users of a variety of phone types ranging from smartphones to flip phones to do their banking anywhere they have cellular service. It was designed as a companion service to the bank’s mobile deposit app, which allowed customers to deposit checks with their smartphones.
According to Richard A. Elko, Conestoga Bank’s president and CEO, the mobile banking options are another result of the bank’s focus on maximizing technology to make the customer experience more convenient.
“With our mobile banking services, customers have the added convenience of managing their money on their schedule,” said Elko. “Conestoga Bank is committed to harnessing technology to make banking more convenient.”
Conestoga Bank’s mobile banking suite is made up of three platforms, depending on the type of mobile phone:
- Mobile Banking App: Designed for iPhones and Android smartphones, the app will allow users to check balances, transfer funds, search transaction history, and locate a branch or 43,000 surcharge-free ATMs.
- Mobile Web: Designed for BlackBerry and other web-enabled devices, this browser-based service will allow users to check balances, transfer funds, search transaction history, and locate a branch or 43,000 surcharge-free ATMs.
- Text Banking: Designed for traditional, non-web-enabled mobile phones such as flip phones and handsets, users will be able to check balances, transfer funds, and view transaction history.
In May, the bank unveiled its mobile deposit app, which allows smartphone users to deposit checks by taking a photo of the front and back of the check. The mobile deposit app and mobile banking suite are both major pieces of Conestoga Bank’s continued focus on technology and convenience.
“Convenience is a hallmark of banking with Conestoga,” said Elko. “With the help of creative technologies, we’re redefining what that means.”
