FISTM (NYSE: FIS), one of the world's largest providers of banking and payments technology, today announced its newest mobile banking app, which allows consumers to set up mobile account management through an iPhone® using their debit card. Unlike most mobile financial apps, the entire enrollment process can be completed from start to finish through the customer's iPhone.
While most other financial iPhone apps require the individual to have an online banking account or register online, FIS makes it possible to download the app and register, all from your mobile phone - there is no need to have a personal computer (PC) or an online banking account. In addition, the FIS app can be fully and uniquely branded by each financial institution or prepaid card sponsor so that it is searchable in the App Store. To date, more than 45 institutions have their branded iPhone apps from FIS in the App Store. FIS plans to roll out the same mobile financial service capabilities for the Android platform within the next 30 days in the Android Market.
This branded iPhone app is offered as part of FIS' Mobile Financial suite of services, which already includes these same applications for BlackBerry devices and features a mobile browser and text messaging capabilities.
"FIS is committed to offering the most relevant mobile financial services for its clients that offer convenience and flexibility for users," said Frank D'Angelo, executive vice president, Payment Solutions, FIS. "By providing these services, our clients create a strategic advantage by attracting and retaining customers, allowing them to expand their account base and gain additional market share."
