SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- mFoundry, the fastest-growing mobile banking company in the U.S., announced Verity Credit Union as a customer of its service-based mobile banking platform. Verity Credit Union is the latest credit union to deploy its mBanking solution.
"We were looking for a partner that could deploy mobile banking for us without an arduous on-premise exercise," said Shari Storm, Chief Marketing Officer, Verity Credit Union. "mFoundry's excellent deployment track record and their ability to work with our existing online and core processing systems were key factors in our decision process."
Verity Credit Union's Mobile Banking gives members access to their finances from virtually any mobile device, supporting mobile Web, text and native applications (including Apple iPhone, Google Android, and RIM BlackBerry devices). By providing members with more access options, Verity has been able to accelerate mobile banking adoption.
"We burst through 6% mobile banking adoption of our online banking base within three months of launch," said Storm. "This adoption exceeded our initial expectations, and in many ways, has been our most successful product launch to date. Mobile banking is certainly one of our most important initiatives at this time."
mFoundry has experienced a steady increase in demand from credit unions for its mobile banking platform, as credit unions like Verity look to use mobile banking as a competitive advantage for attracting and retaining members.
"Larger financial institutions are under pressure to replace lost fee revenue – you can expect to see fees increase and freebies go away," said Drew Sievers, co-founder and CEO, mFoundry. "This gives consumers more reason to switch to a credit union like Verity – and a superior mobile banking offering is icing on the cake."
Verity is one of nearly 100 credit unions to select mFoundry for mobile banking over the past year, signaling a trend in more credit unions wanting to provide their members with mobile options. It also reinforces mFoundry's position as the mobile banking solution of choice for banks and credit unions of any size, including large credit unions like Verity CU. Nearly 500 financial institutions have selected mFoundry's mobile banking solution to date.
