CoVantage CU Goes With Tyfone Mobile Wallet
The $944 million CoVantage Credit Union in Antigo, Wis., has launched mobile banking, using the mobile wallet services of Tyfone Inc. of Portland, Ore., the company and credit union said.
The new service offers standard banking features – balances, transfers and ATM and branch locators – along with account aggregation, bill pay and mobile remote deposit capture, as well as mobile banking for non-Internet banking members.
Android, BlackBerry and iPhone apps are offered, along with a Web browser and text banking, with an iPad application in development, Tyfone said.
CoVantage cited integration with its Symitar Episys core platform and ability to enable contactless near-field communications among reasons for choosing the Tyfone solution.
“CoVantage chose Tyfone because of its unique and innovative vision of the mobile channel which is echoed in its current features as well as its future road map of features including enhanced security and NFC contactless payments,” said Robert Van Abel, CIO of CoVantage.
CoVantage said it has more than 66,000 members and 10 offices in north-central Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
