Financial Town Displays Banking Industry’s First Overseas Mobile Video
News out of Salt Lake City today: Financial Town demonstrated the banking industry’s first international mobile video transmission at the 2016 World Credit Union Conference in Belfast, the capital and the largest city in Northern Ireland.
Broadcasted from Belfast directly to the U.S., the demonstration marks the first mobile video banking call made internationally.
“As one of the fastest-growing channels in financial services history, mobile banking is an integral means of meeting the growing demands of mobile-first customers worldwide,” said Financial Town founder and CEO Gene Pranger, who pioneered the video banking market with the uGenius platform in 2010. “Mobile video is poised to revolutionize the industry yet again, both at home and abroad. We’re delighted to demonstrate these next-generation capabilities in an international setting using BankOn Mobile Video.”
The BankOn Mobile Video platform uses face-to-face mobile video and customizable management soft to aid banks and credit unions offer unprecedented access to live financial service representatives, tools and other services, despite the time or location.
Through access via the BankOn mobile app or web portal, members can use their own mobile devices to initiate live video chats, participate in presentations by sales and service reps, deposit checks, and upload documents and e-sign documents in real time, eliminating the need for either party to be present in the physical location.
