BBVA Compass further expanded the reach of its mobile banking apps with the introduction of its bilingual iPhone app.
"This is part of our ongoing commitment to continually improve our mobile banking solutions, adding features and services to better serve our customers' needs," said Alex Carriles, executive vice president and director of Mobile Strategy and Retail Innovation at BBVA Compass. "We currently serve a number of markets with a growing Spanish-speaking population, so we wanted to give those customers access in the language that is most comfortable to them."
The bank remains committed to providing native applications for the most popular mobile platforms, allowing users to enjoy a mobile banking experience that is consistent with their chosen devices. In addition to the iPhone, BBVA Compass provides mobile banking apps for iPhone® and iPad® mobile digital devices, BlackBerry® devices and the Android mobile digital platform, and soon will be updating those to add bilingual capabilities.
"We already operate as a fully bilingual bank in the U.S., and these additions will support that commitment," Carriles said.
The latest iPhone app offers access to such mobile banking features as bill pay, account transfers, balance review, an enhanced branch locator and improved views of paid checks with zoom capabilities. This new version also introduces a full feature Bill Pay service by allowing customers not only to issue payments, but also to add payees, manage payment source accounts, display past payments, and display or cancel pending payments.
