As more and more banks join the mobile banking app craze, Northwest Savings Bank is staying on top of its own to provide the best features they can for their customers. The Northwest Savings app is available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Like most mobile banking apps, Northwest Savings’ app is free and includes tools such as locating an ATM machine or transferring funds. In a statement released by Luke Boger, the Online Banking Manager of Northwest Savings Bank, he said, “The new app provides full integration with Northwest’s Mobile Banking platform… [and] takes full advantage of the iPhone’s built-in GPS and Google Maps to not only give customers an overview of branches and ATMs in their area, but also precise directions to and contact information for the location of their choice. It also allows customers to call the bank’s toll-free Bankline telephone banking number with the press of a button.”
This app includes just about everything you will need in a mobile banking app. Security is Northwest’s number one priority, so the app comes with advanced encryption technology to protect personal banking information, as well as a security question to verify your identity when you log in for the first time. Also, mobile banking will not transmit any account numbers. The features included are:
- Check account balances
- View recent transactions
- Transfer funds between your accounts
- Pay bills
- ATM and branch locator utilizing GPS technology
- Call Voice Banking service for account information and Customer Service
While the app is available to all Northwest Savings customers, in order to take advantage of it with the convenience of your iPhone you must be enrolled in Mobile Banking, if you are not already. Also, as you can see in the Features, you will have the ability to transfer money but not to any other accounts besides for your own.
While this app is featured for Apple devices, Northwest Savings Bank still has other smartphone users in mind. Most BlackBerry, Android and Palm devices operate with the same design and much of the same functionality available to iPhone users. Tell us how you liked Northwest Savings Bank mobile app.
