Strasburg, VA (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
First Bank, the Strasburg-based community bank with 10 locations in the northern Virginia Shenandoah Valley, recently announced the formal launch of two new electronic banking services. ‘Deposit Anywhere’ is a feature within First Bank’s mobile app that allows customers to deposit checks anywhere, at any time, with just a click of their smart phone’s camera. First Bank also launched online account opening. Though First Bank has had an online banking presence for several years now, the new e-banking products will provide First Bank customers with a new level of convenience and access to their banking accounts. Access to electronic banking comes free as an added benefit for all First Bank customers.
“We always make it a point to listen to our customers, trying to provide services that best meet their ever-changing needs,” says First Bank Senior Vice President of Retail Banking Greg Hoover. “First Bank customers are hard-working, busy people, and they need a bank that fits their schedule. Our electronic banking services do just that.”
Electronic banking only just began to gain traction on a national scale within the last decade, though even just five years ago it was still considered a ‘futuristic technology’ that was only offered by large, nationwide banks. First Bank is among the first community banks to offer the same timesaving technology as national banks, but with the perks that come with local, hometown banks. And with people on-the-go for work, family or fun, it’s important that First Bank customers have the ability to access their bank account even when they aren’t in the Shenandoah Valley.
“First Bank will always be the same hometown bank, here to serve the needs of people in the Shenandoah Valley,” says Hoover. “I’m proud that we stick to our roots but are also able to compete with some of the largest banks in the country. Banking with First Bank is a win-win.”
