Life moves fast, and so do you

Being constantly busy and on the go has become a way of life. Sometimes, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Even staying on top of important tasks like managing your financial accounts becomes a real challenge.

Fortunately, technology brings us new tools to help us stay informed and in control, particularly in the area of personal money management.

Anytime, anywhere access makes it easier for you to manage your money

In recent years the technology behind mobile banking, including credit account management, has evolved into a robust platform that delivers speed, accuracy, and security.

As our lives get busier, more and more of us are opting to take advantage of convenient mobile banking. In fact, top research group Forrester predicts that by 2015 one in five U.S. adults will be saving time and hassle with mobile financial management tools. “The biggest benefit is that you have more control of your money,” says James Van Dyke, president of Javelin Strategy & Research in Pleasanton, Calif. “You don’t have Internet connections everywhere you go. But you do have a mobile connection.”

And, according to a recent study conducted by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System on Mobile Financial Services, “the ubiquity of mobile phones is changing the way consumers access financial services.”

  • Forrester: 61 million U.S. consumers will use mobile banking next year, up from 47 million in 2012
  • 60% of new customers said that being able to use mobile banking influenced their decisions in choosing financial institutions
  • The most common use of mobile banking is to check account balances or recent transactions

More than ever before, people are taking advantage of mobile account access and how it adds convenience to their everyday lives. With the growing prevalence of smartphones, you now have greater access to and control over everything from booking travel to buying groceries. These small timesavers go a long way to making our lives easier. A recent Ericcson study reported the following: “When asked what they carry with them when leaving home, 90 percent of all smartphone owners said they always take their phones and their keys, but only 80 percent mentioned money.”
