SOLE Financial Launches New Payroll Card Mobile App Powered by Cachet Financial Solutions.
The app is powered by Cachet’s award-winning Select Mobile™ Money platform and will phase out and replace SOLE Financial’s former FIS-supported app. A brand new, user-friendly interface lets cardholders manage their paycards on the go, which informs the app slogan, “Your money, anywhere.”
Cardholders will have access to their account balance, transaction history, routing and account numbers and the ability to transfer funds from the app. The prominence of the routing & account number feature on the app home screen is part of a cardholder retention initiative which aims to boost awareness of the paycard’s “take it with you” feature. The SOLE Visa® Payroll Card is only distributed through employers, but once enrolled, employees can “take it with” them and use the card for all direct deposits, even if they leave the job where they received the paycard.
From SOLE Financial President Tom Secor: “SOLE Financial’s partnership with Cachet to release the SOLE Financial 2.0 app is an exciting step forward in our ongoing efforts to serve the underserved population. The brick and mortar model is antiquated and unsympathetic to working folks in the unbanked marketplace. Our cardholders deserve and will have a banking platform that gets them what they need, whenever they need it, without the hassles of traditional banking red tape. It is crucial that we ensure our mobile services are useful and powerful in a world where mobile technology is often the primary touch point between customer and company. Offering this new and more robust app will give the 87% of our cardholder base who use a smartphone access to services traditionally only offered to the banked population – giving our cardholders a more dignified experience and access to their account, anywhere, anytime.”
“We are delighted to support the development and launch of the SOLE Paycard mobile app with our leading prepaid mobile technology,” said Jeffrey Mack, Cachet’s president and CEO. “Together, SOLE Financial and Cachet Financial Solutions are redefining the payroll card experience by putting traditional banking services that most of us take for granted at the fingertips of un- and underserved employees.”
