Darren Gragg, Vice President, Bennington State Bank, said of the new mobile bill pay enhancement, “We wanted to be able to offer the consumer all of the options of our traditional online banking system on the mobile platform. The Mobile Bill Pay transition was seamless and has been met with overwhelming success.” Agreeing with Gragg, Phillip Pugrud, Certified Financial Officer, Cowboy State Bank, explained, “We implemented the Mobile Bill Pay as part of an ongoing effort to offer all the electronic services of a national bank, while maintaining the community bank culture of personal service.”
“Consumers are becoming more tech savvy every day, paying bills at the touch of a button is becoming an expectation, not just a luxury. We strive to provide our financial clients with the technology they need to ensure customer satisfaction; seeing the growing popularity of bill pay we are excited to offer the option to our customers,” Bradley R. Perry, President, ASI.
With the growing popularity of bill pay as well as features like mobile deposit and real-time balances ASI expects a continued high adoption rate for their mobile banking applications.
