Eight CUs Commit to New Mobile Platform
Austin, Texas-based startup FI-MOBILE LLC said it has signed eight credit unions as users of its new UNIFi mobile banking platform.
The new platform allows credit unions to quickly edit the app functionality and content, negating the need to pay ongoing development fees. It also allows existing mobile banking solutions to be embedded into the app, the company said.
The new clients include five in Texas: the $1 billion Credit Union of Texas in Dallas; the $1.4 billion JSC FCU in Houston, the $173 million 1st Community FCU in San Angelo, the $230 million Gulf CU in Groves, and the $259 million Texas FCU in Texarkana.
"The ability of the UniFI platform to leverage our existing mobile-enabled internet banking system, combined with its extensive analytics, was exactly what we needed to deliver the best experience for our members,” said Jerry Thompson, senior vice president/chief information officer at the Credit Union of Texas.
The FI-MOBILE platform includes branding and marketing options, simultaneous support for iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android and Web-enabled devices and real-time feature and content updates via a Web-based management console, the company said.
FI-MOBILE launched in 2010. Its co-founders include Dan Chaney, who earlier co-founded TERES Solutions, a loan origination solution provider that was later sold to CRIF.
