Meeting the needs of digitally connected businesses on the go

first_imgConsumers aren’t the only ones turning to mobile banking for anytime, anywhere access to financial services. According to the Fall 2015 Small Business National Research report by Raddon, nearly half of small businesses are using mobile to add a new dimension to their day-to-day operations, including on-the-go approvals and decision making. And as the size of the small business increases, so does the likelihood the business is using mobile banking; 58 percent of small businesses with annual sales from $500K to $10 million are using mobile banking.Businesses, especially firms led by people who aren’t often behind a desk, need advanced mobile functionality. Simply repurposing consumer mobile solutions for business use misses the mark. In addition to account information, funds transfer and remote deposit, businesses have unique cash management and security needs, including requirements for multi-user entitlements, payment approvals and advanced authentication capabilities.When decision makers are away from their desks or out of the office, comprehensive banking capabilities, alerts, and reporting and payment functionality keep business moving. Notifications let decision makers know when transactions – ACH, wires, positive pay and internal transfers – need approval. User credentials and entitlements carry over to mobile banking for added efficiencies. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

This marks a full circle feeling for the AHS graduate as she played Peter back in a fifth grade.This action packed fairy tale runs every Thursday through Sunday up until December 9th. Tickets are available at the door, or grab your tickets online at the Thunder Bay Theatre website.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: AHS Masquers Club, Alpena High School, fairytale, Musical, Neverland, Peter Pan, Smee, Thunder Bay TheatreContinue ReadingPrevious Father says of deceased baby, he ‘wanted to be closer to his spirit’Next Alpena Christmas tree is lit, Santa’s backlast_img read more
