Banking on the Run: Members Excited About New Mobile Apps


In a recent smartphone commercial, the announcer boasts “It’s easier to show you what it doesn’t do in 30 seconds,” This statement sums up how mobile technology in America has evolved in 2013.

People are using their cell phones for just about everything, from listening to music to surfing the web, and smartphones are even taking the place of traditional tools like flashlights.

Mobile banking is another exciting use of smartphone technology, and one our members have been craving. Now, mobile banking from Community Financial is here, and the feedback has been encouraging so far according to Community Financial VP of Information Technology Art Beard.

“This is something that our members have wanting for a while, it’s been greatly anticipated, “Beard said.  “We’re seeing comments on the Apple Store saying things about how easy the app is to navigate, how it looks great, and one person even called it, ‘Hands down one of the best banking apps I’ve ever used.’”

The Community Financial Mobile app is available on Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.  Blackberry users can also access a link to download it here.

Downloading an app isn’t the only way to take advantage of Community Financial’s mobile banking features.  The Community Financial Mobile Banking Site, located at https://mobile.cfcu.org is also available. The mobile site is secure, just as the apps are, and is specially designed to be compatible with mobile devices, allowing it to maintain the convenience of an app as well as the functionality of a full-fledged mobile site. 

The services are available to Community Financial members who establish an eBanking ID & password and register their device by email.

The new mobile banking options have been popular with many members according to Beard, who notes thousands have sign up in the first two months since launching the service.  

“They tell me they love the new (mobile banking options) and they’re really glad to finally see the app,” he said. “Pretty much everything has been positive so far.”
