KANSAS CITY, MO (MARCH 2015) Lead Bank continues to improve the client’s experience by not only hiring exceptional people and adding convenient locations, but also by investing in innovative digital services. According to current banking industry trends reported by the Harvard Business Journal and Bain & Company respectively, more than 85% of retail banking transactions are now digital and by 2016, the average user of banking services will be using digital services 300 times for every physical interaction with their bank. Millennials, especially, prefer to bank digitally through the use of their desktop computer, tablet and mobile phone. Internet-based services and mobile devices allow for rapid innovation in digital financial services. To meet this growing need, Lead Bank is pleased announce their new Personal Digital Banking platform which brings online mobile banking technology into the palms of client’s hands and establishes Lead Bank as a leader of its peers in the metropolitan area.
As a result of the Personal Digital Banking services, Lead Bank’s clients will have faster, easier access to their account information and a complete array of mobile banking tools. Lead Bank’s own “My Spending Trends” feature allows clients to assign expenses into categories to keep track of how they’re spending and saving their money. Also included is Mobile Check Deposit, allowing clients to deposit checks by snapping a photo of the check with your phone, and Popmoney®, which enables clients to make a payment to someone from a phone or tablet as easily as sending and receiving email and text messages. The “Transfer Now” option allows account holders to transfer between their Lead Bank account and accounts held at other banks. Rounding out the Personal Digital Banking suite of services are checking your bank balances via text message and integration with bookkeeping and budgeting software systems such as Quicken, Quickbooks and Mint.com. These Personal Digital Banking services offer speed, simplicity, and flexibility while state-of-the-art security keeps personal information safe and secure.
To serve millennials, as their knowledge and technology behaviors continue to mature, the need to be mobile is key to a banking success. “The millennial generation and most small business owners aren’t behind their desks all day, many don’t even have an office. The way they do business today is not the way of the past. Because everyone is so busy, banking must be mobile and secure in order to stay relevant. Lead Bank can now offer the best service possible to our clients - of any age - who are on the go. By offering full access to their finances where they are, when they need it, Lead Bank can make their financial activities more efficient and productive,” said Josh Rowland, Vice Chairman of Lead Bank. “We have combined the benefits of the digital and physical worlds together to create a positive client experience. Lead Bank is now an integral part of consumer’s daily financial lives,” Rowland added.
