Argent Bank Launches Business Mobile Banking Suite

Argent Bank, the principal California operating subsidiary of Sterling Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:STSA), today announced that it is launching a robust business mobile banking suite. The Argent Biz Mobile app for iPhone and Android devices is designed specifically for business banking customers. Customers can also access accounts through the Argent Mobile Web platform to make transfers, track recent transactions and pay bills, among other services.

“We are excited to debut the Argent mobile banking suite to our business customers to fulfill their desire to conveniently bank on-the-go,” said Patricia Baughman, SVP and product management and market research executive at Argent Bank. “The design of our new business mobile offerings allows us to have a single, consistent user experience across different digital banking platforms and channels.”

Argent Biz Mobile provides business customers with the capability to access information and manage their assets from their smartphones, including:

  • View account balances and transactions
  • Search for specific transactions
  • Transfer funds between accounts with Argent
  • Pay vendors and other payees
  • View and cancel scheduled payments
  • Search for nearby Argent branches and ATMs
  • Deposit checks using image capture mobile deposit

Argent Biz Mobile is available for free download today through the Apple App Store and Google Play. Unlike many other banks, Argent offers mobile deposits at no additional charge. Using the camera on a smartphone, 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 bank’s Mobile Web solution is identical to its smartphone app, but without the mobile deposit feature. For details, visit www.bankwithargent.com/bizmobilebanking.

To ensure business banking customers can make safe transactions across these digital services, Mobile Web and mobile app platforms integrate 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, “We plan to launch an iPad app in the next 30 days. We also are developing additional features, to be released throughout 2014, including mobile transaction approvals for cash management services like wire and ACH transactions.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
