Smartphone penetration hit 60% of the US mobile subscriber market during the 3-month average ending in July, according to new figures from comScore. Penetration had most recently stood at 59% for the prior 2 months, although Nielsen had pegged the figure at 62%. Compared to the 3-month period ending in April (one quarter earlier), Apple’s share of the market grew by 1.2% points to 40.4%, while Android slipped by 0.2% points to 51.8% share.
Most Potential Impact is a great award to win. And voted upon by peers in the financial community.
This means the all believe in big sign-ups for this product!!
Hope Mitek is going to be getting a decent rate on this new product. I believe I read that they're still going to use channel partners and only go direct on some of the large banks. Customer acquisition should be worth a lot more than customer convenience products. Wonder if we'll get a hint on pricing at next CC.
I believe a lot of banks require photo id to open an account so if you fill out info online you still have to mail or fax in a photo copy of your driver's license to the bank before your account can be opened. This would certainly take care of that authentication issue in a simplified fashion.
WE now have at least 625 active launched MD FIs. My list is always short around 50 banks from what is reported during conference calls.
True. Perhaps they could work something out if it was made clear that they were not going to hold or invest the money but only forward it to other FIs. Was just thinking that a direct to customer model would give them so much liberty in pricing and provide the service immediately for all banking customers.
Any thoughts on this from thoughtful board members? Of course, it may be too late for them to change their model but this is the way they should have gone from the beginning.
Direct to consumer, charge what they want and forward the deposit to any bank the customer chooses. Only really works for MD. Harder to be intermediary for Balance Transfer and Bill Pay but
MD could have been done.
Why should banking customers have to wait for their bank to offer MD?
Mitek could do it for them!
Why are they wasting all their energy and technology on banks that don't want to pay a decent transaction rate and channel partners they have to split that rate with?
Mitek should buy a bank so they can clear mobile deposits themselves.
They don't have to call themselves a bank per se. But they gain clearing capabilities.
Sell the app directly to consumers. 20 or 30 cents a check or $5 as an annual fee.
Consumer can have one or more banks set up on the app and they can decide where they want the
money forwarded to.
No more channel partners. No more signing up banks. They can ACH the money anywhere the
customer wants. This could work internationally as well. Cuts the expense of sales force too.
It's Finovate so I guess it probably is banking. Spoke too soon. But we'll know in 5 days what our new vertical is!!
In Gartner's May 16, 2013 report App Explosion: Lessons From the Top 20 Banks author Kristin Moyer noted:
“Nearly 75% of banking CIOs and digital technology leaders plan to increase spending on mobile apps this year. We advise that banks develop an app road map based on need-based functionality and impact on net profits.”
In their July 2013 report How To Upgrade Online and Mobile Account Opening for an Omnichannel Era Javelin Research & Strategy's noted:
“the fact that 88.5 million Americans attempted to open an account online or with a mobile device in the past 12 months underscores how far digital account opening has come in a few short years. Nonetheless, its potential remains largely untapped, especially as consumers place growing importance on mobile capabilities.” In the same report the firm also noted, “The number one job for financial intuitions should be to enable applicants to open and fund an account in one session.”
On September 10th at Finovate Fall in New York, we will announce a new mobile imaging solution that will have a profound impact on net profits by enabling acquisition of the sought after digital natives and mobile first consumers and at the same time moving them to a lower cost self service channel.

Brookfield-based Fiserv Inc. a global provider of financial services technology solutions, has announced the launch of Mobiliti: Tablet, a turnkey mobile banking application for tablet users.
Mobiliti: Tablet joins the company's licensed solutions for tablet banking, enabling additional banks and credit unions to support the rapidly growing channel. Interest in the Mobiliti: Tablet app has been strong among Fiserv clients, with more than 100 banks and credit unions already committed to deploy the solution.
Mobiliti: Tablet provides a functional, quick to market tablet banking capability. The downloadable application for iPad and iPad mini provides users with access to their accounts in an interactive, touch-enabled format. Capabilities include bill payments, person-to-person payments, mobile deposit, an ATM and branch locator and built-in calendar and calculator functions.
Mobiliti: Tablet integrates with online banking solutions from Fiserv and the Popmoney person-to-person payments solution, providing users with full access to digital banking functionality and social payment transactions. A downloadable application for Android tablets will be available in 2014.
Tablet ownership is rapidly increasing, giving financial institutions an opportunity to expand their digital channels as consumers use tablets to access financial services. According to the 2012 Consumer Trends Survey from Fiserv, nearly half of tablet owners have already used their device to access banking services, and almost two-thirds of future tablet owners would like to do so.
"Research has shown tablet banking users are more engaged than other mobile banking users, as they use digital channels more frequently and consume a larger number of financial services," said Bradley Scott, vice president, Mobile Solutions, Fiserv. "With Mobiliti: Tablet, financial institutions can quickly bring tablet banking to market, meeting the needs of existing customers through a lower cost channel, while attracting
This looks close to a bottom here. If you look at chart in April it broke 4 heading to 200 days but bounced before reaching it. I think the lowest it could get is around 4.75 maybe tomorrow but that looks like a real buying op if it gets there. I hold so much it's hard to pull the trigger but I'm sure others will.
