Tyfone’s mobile banking solution offers a complete range of features for banking customers. In addition to standard mobile banking features, such as checking balance, account history review, fund transfers, branch and ATM location lookup and customizable alerts, Tyfone’s multimode mobile banking solution offers convenient features, including:

“Tyfone’s offering is built around relevance and convenience with an emphasis on providing both near-term and long-term value,” said Mark Miyamoto, director of mobile banking for Tyfone. “For example, enabling members to enroll and manage mobile banking solely from a mobile device using an app, mobile Web or SMS is very applicable with the proliferation of feature rich mobile devices. One Tyfone client has reported more than a 10 percent mobile adoption from non-PC bankers, which in turn increases the ROI for the financial institution.”
