There’s An App for That: How to Engage Members through Tablet & Smartphone Applications


With approximately 70 million possible tablet users by year-end and 4.6 billion smartphones being used worldwide it’s safe to say credit union members are mobile. As credit unions begin to adapt and cope to the so called, “Post PC Era” how will their mobile applications on smartphones and tablets effect how they service and educate non-members and existing members? Imagine what it would look like if a financial institution developed their own applications to educate, engage, and market to its members and non-members. Mobile devices and custom app development across multiple platforms will become critical in differentiating one financial institution from the next. As tablet devices surpass the sales of PC devices it will become even more important to strategize on the surpassing of online banking to people utilizing mobile banking.
