If you are a community bank or credit union, then there’s a lot to like in the launch of Business Banking Mobile from NCR. The app brings the SaaS banking services platform to the mobile channel, giving small-and-medium FIs the ability to offer their business customers a range of services via iOS and Android devices. The solution features the user experience of Digital Insight’s Mobile Banking Apps, ensuring a familiar, retail feel, and includes TouchID and EyePrint ID biometric authentication options.
Speaking for Harborstone Credit Union (Tacoma, Washington), where the technology is in beta testing, VP of Marketing and Digital Experience Ken Bloomfield called the app “in direct alignment” with Harborstone’s commitment to providing an omnichannel experience for its business customers. SVP of Marketing Jim Huff, whose El Paso, Texas-based FirstLight FCU is piloting the new mobile app, highlighted the features that will be available to its businesses, including fund transfer, wire-transfer approval, and account notifications. He says the combination of NCR and Digital Insight helped “ensure that the product continues to evolve as financial technology evolves.”

Headquartered in Georgia, NCR demoed its Transaction Data Manager at FinovateSpring 2016. A specialist in consumer-transaction technology, NCR facilitates more than 550 million transactions a day in verticals ranging from financial services and small business to travel and telecom. Earlier this month, the company announced its partnership with six-time Finovate Best of Show winner MX with the launch of a new data-driven money-management platform, NCR Money Management. MX CEO Ryan Caldwell suggested that the collaboration, which began in the spring of 2016, was the start of an enduring partnership between the two companies. “We look forward to innovating together for many years to come,” Caldwell said.
NCR also announced a handful of development initiatives over the summer, launching a joint research effort into ATM and retail banking technology with Wells Fargo and opening a new innovation lab at its new global headquarters in Atlanta. Bill Nuti is president, CEO, and chairman.
