CA-based CO-OP Financial Services is re-launching CO-OP Mobile, its mobile banking application now featuring optional real-time, person-to-person payments and remote check deposit capabilities for credit union smartphone users.
Originally introduced in February 2009, CO-OP Mobile is being reintroduced to take advantage of CO-OP’s new person-to-person payments network called RealPay by CO-OP, incorporating the FIS PayNet platform. CO-OP Mobile is a fully customizable and configurable mobile app for credit unions, utilizing the same connection technology as CO-OP Shared Branch transactions, which expedites implementation for credit unions already participating in that network.
The new CO-OP Mobile was tested prior to introduction by Democracy FCU of Washington, D.C.
Additional key features of the new CO-OP mobile include iPhone and Android apps custom-branded to the credit union; account aggregation for access to all accounts at a credit union on one app; account-to-account transfers; account history; text banking; and a back office client portal application to monitor and manage users.
CO-OP will be further rolling out CO-OP Mobile as part of a free webinar taking place on Wednesday, February 25, at 11 a.m. Pacific time. Titled “Mobile Momentum: From Apple Pay to RealPay – and Beyond,” registration for the webinar is available at http://info.co-opfs.org/02-25-Mobile-Momentum_Landing.html. Mobile/virtual products from CO-OP will also be part of the company’s exhibition booth at CUNA GAC 15, taking place March 8-11, in Washington, D.C.
