Firethorn Holdings has expanded its mobile banking solution to allow customers to manage their checking, savings and credit card accounts with more than 3,700 US financial institutions using a single mobile application.
One of the mobile banking application’s latest features gives users the ability to securely access their enrolled financial accounts from more than 3,700 financial institutions using a single login PIN number on their mobile device, in addition to the secure access they previously had to financial institutions working with Firethorn.
Once logged in, customers can check their financial account balances, see their latest transactions and track if payments have cleared. Financial institutions providing integrated Firethorn services may offer additional transactional capabilities, such as bill pay and funds transfer, as well as the ability to receive and view rewards and offers.
The application is available on a variety of smartphones and feature handsets offered by wireless operators working with Firethorn.
Ben Ackerman, vice president of product strategy at Firethorn, said: “Until recently, users of Firethorn’s Mobile Banking solution could only access their accounts if their financial institution was an integrated Firethorn provider. Our goal is to deliver a comprehensive, relevant and secure mobile banking experience to all customers, which is why we are delivering this new solution.
“Firethorn conducted extensive research to better understand customers’ lifestyles, needs and behaviors. In response, we have expanded our Mobile Banking offering so that customers can access critical account information at more banking institutions, enabling them to make well informed financial and purchase decisions while on the go.”
