Financial software house EverSystems has introduced SmartMail, a solution which enables banks to deliver updates and transaction capabilities to consumers via a secure, encrypted email channel.
SmartMail brings the functionality of a branch visit to email, says EverSystems, allowing banking customers to receive a wide variety of account information, including balances, transaction details, event alerts and notices, directly in their inbox, in a way that is secure and password protected. Users can define the timing, quantity and scope of SmartMail deliveries.
"SmartMail is a unique product for the US market," states Cristian Balbontin, COO for EverSystems' North American operations. "This is the first secure delivery technology to utilise the email channel to deliver personalised account information directly to the online customer."
The system caters for aggregated information delivery across multiple accounts, says the vendor. Information such as bank and brokerage accounts, credit cards, insurance policies, and loyalty programmes, such as airline mileage statements can be delivered in a single encrypted email.
