Feb. 12 - Mobile with Mobile Deposit is available at no charge to existing customers enrolled in Sterling’s Business Online Banking solution. Using the camera on an iPad, customers can make deposits simply by taking a picture of the front and back of an endorsed check, entering the check amount and selecting the deposit account. On-screen confirmations and email notifications communicate the status of the deposit. The iPad app has improved usability over the smartphone apps in that it can be used in both landscape or portrait positions and it brings more information forward to the dashboard landing page. For details, visit www.bankwithsterling.com/bizmobilebanking.
To ensure business banking customers can make safe transactions across these digital services, the iPad app integrates various security features such as advanced sign-on authentication, which uses complex device identification at each sign-on to mobile banking. When the service detects an unrecognized device, multifactor authentication works to further verify the identity of customers before accessing account information.
Baughman added, “The bank works closely with our primary technology provider, FIS, when developing our Biz Mobile suite. We are working to develop additional features, like mobile approval for cash management services such as wire and ACH transactions, which will be released throughout 2014.”
