Genisys offers mobile check deposit using the iPhone

Genisys Credit Union has officially launched its new iPhone app with Mobile Check Deposit after months of development, making it the first credit union in Michigan capable of depositing a check by phone.

"When developing our new iPhone app, it was important for us to add features that would enhance our members banking experience," said Jackie Buchanan, CEO. "We wanted members to be able to bank with Genisys wherever they go."

The iPhone app features a new design, updated functionality and takes advantage of the security features offered in IOS 4.3 or greater.

"We're pretty excited about the new features available on the iPhone app," said Buchanan. "It's loaded with convenient options, and our members already love it."

In addition to basic functions such as viewing balances, transferring money, obtaining rates and searching for free ATMS, members now have more mobile banking options.

They can enroll and view multiple Genisys accounts as well as link accounts for access with one login. Qualified members can take advantage of new Mobile Check Deposit by taking a photo of a check using the camera on their device. They can also make quick transfers using Drag-n-Drop to transfer within an account or to any Genisys member. Posted and pending transaction history can be viewed along with details about each transaction. Auto, home and mortgage calculators can also be found to estimate savings and payment costs.

"By simplifying the functionality of performing transactions, we hope that members will find managing their accounts more convenient than ever before," said Buchanan.

Members can download the new Genisys iPhone app by searching for it in the App Store. On the login page, simply click "Register here" and follow the simple steps to get started right on the device. Users of the previous version must also register the first time they download the new app to access their account.

Genisys is also happy to announce that the Android app is in development and is expected to be available toward the end of the year.
