Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU) members who own an Android Wear watch can now seamlessly check account balances with a flick of the wrist, without the hassle of logging-in to the mobile app. The app os powered by NCR’s Digital Insight.
The smartwatch app will automatically sync to a user’s Android Wear device after the user has upgraded to the updated version of the Wright-Patt Credit Union mobile app. Using their voice, users can initiate viewing their account balances without logging in on the phone.
Digital Insight continues to foster innovative solutions for its bank and credit union customers and created an innovation lab in 2014 to help financial institution customers experiment and implement emerging technologies such as wearables, biometrics, and location-based services. Dubbed DI Labs, the Silicon Valley incubator is focused on developing and bringing to market next-generation tools and solutions that enable financial institutions to remain competitive, delight their customers and grow as a business.
The Android Wear App is in limited availability for Digital Insight financial institution customers with plans to expand throughout the year. Digital Insight also plans to launch the same banking capabilities designed for Apple Watch in Spring 2015 when the device becomes available in the U.S. market.
Wright-Patt Credit Union is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative proudly serving the Miami Valley with over 300,000 members and $3 billion in assets.
