McLean, VA (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Acumen Solutions, a nationally recognized pioneer in implementing cloud-based technology, has partnered with Navy Federal Credit Union to help deliver mobile banking applications for the Apple iOS™ and Android™ platforms, as well as their mobile website. Since the initial release of these apps on iPad®, iPhone®, Android™ and Kindle Fire devices, Navy Federal has sustained application ratings above four stars on iTunes® and Google Play™. Customers rate mobile apps based on user interface, features and overall user experience.
In 2013, Navy Federal released their highly anticipated application for iPad, which goes beyond traditional mobile banking. With an intuitive user interface, social media integration, spending charts and graphs, and core mobile banking features, the application was ranked among the “Best New Apps” in the finance category of the App Store℠ within the first week of its launch. Recently Navy Federal added the capability to apply for a credit card from the app and a wizard to help members select a credit card that best suits their needs.
“Navy Federal’s leadership and vision in mobile banking combined with Acumen Solutions’ expertise in mobile solutions that drive business objectives has resulted in tremendous success with the roll out of the application across a number of devices,” explained Jim Herzog, managing director at Acumen Solutions. “These high ratings catapult the credit union into an elite group of financial institutions that offer exceptional quality mobile applications to their members.
