GREENVILLE, S.C., July 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CertusBank, N.A. has announced three product offerings that enhance banking capabilities for consumer and small business customers.

CertusBank recently introduced Mobile Check Deposit as a smart solution for making deposits. Available through the CertusBank Mobile Banking application on iPhones, iPads and Android devices, this product allows customers to deposit checks into their account by simply taking a picture of the check with their device – no branch or ATM visit required.

"Within just a few months of launching Mobile Check Deposit, the amount of deposits made through this channel has increased by more than 220%," says Doug Meagher, Senior Vice President, eCommerce and Mobile Banking. "It's no secret that banking is going mobile as consumers focus more on the convenience factor."

Another convenient new solution the bank has launched is Account to Account (A2A) Transfer. This service allows customers to transfer funds through Online Banking between their CertusBank account and accounts held at other financial institutions. A2A Transfers offer both cost savings, as they are less expensive than wire transfers, and enhanced security.

Vantiv® Mobile Accept, CertusBank's newest solution for small business customers offered through a partnership with Vantiv, allows merchants to quickly and securely swipe any credit or signature debit card through a card reader attached to a smartphone or tablet. This mobile payment application enables businesses to process transactions anytime, anywhere.

"We understand the full spectrum of business cash flow needs and recognized that businesses need the capability to engage their customers anywhere," says Joe Watkins, Director of Treasury Management. "With the Vantiv Mobile Accept solution, we provide our customers with a tool that is simple and easy to use, with the transaction speeds and security they require."
