Corporate treasurers spending more time on the road now have an enhanced new tool for making their offices even more mobile: RBS Citizens Treasury Solutions today announced the launch of its second-generation corporate mobile banking application, accessMOBILE.
With accessMOBILE, RBS Citizens is one of the first commercial banks in the U.S. to offer a corporate mobile banking app that allows users to deposit a check remotely through a system that is integrated with their other cash management systems, initiate wire transfers from templates, and decision positive pay items and use other new functionality. In addition to iPhone, today's launch also includes apps for iPad and for Android devices and a new mobile-optimized website delivering full accessMOBILE functionality to web-enabled mobile devices such as Blackberry and Windows Phone.
"This new release of accessMOBILE shifts functionality from information- to action-oriented use, and is an important part of our continued investment in the latest technology that helps our customers to manage their finances," said James Gifas, Head of RBS Citizens Treasury Solutions. "Our customers tell us that they want to be as productive and efficient as possible wherever they are - in the office or on the road."
With the introduction of the award winning accessMOBILE in 2010, RBS Citizens became the first bank in its footprint to offer a corporate mobile banking app; more than 75% of the bank's targeted cash management customers downloaded the app within the first three months of its release, establishing RBS Citizens as a leader in corporate mobile banking. accessMOBILE was cited by Computerworld in 2011 as an Honors Laureate in the "Business Responsiveness" category, which recognizes the innovative use of information technology to improve business responsiveness to customer needs, the business environment or business challenges.
The expansion of the accessMOBILE functionality is the latest in a series of innovations that RBS Citizens has made in both the mobile payments space and the payments space in general. Earlier this year, the bank launched accessPAYMODE-X, a revenue generating e-payables service that allows companies to realize an income stream in a traditional cost center such as accounts payable and to solidify relationships with suppliers, who are better able to manage their own cash flow.
