These days, we jump online for many everyday tasks to save time. From shopping, to checking in for a flight, to simply turning to Google for the quick query.
Time spent on simple banking tasks adds up.
Statistics show an estimated 62 percent of Americans cite online banking as their primary way of banking. So, if you haven’t given online banking a try, perhaps it is time to dive in.
Let’s start with the basics.
24-Hour Access. Online banking is a 24-hour service, so you are no longer tied to the branch’s hours or physical locations. You don’t have travel or wait time, thus giving you more time to do what you want. Additionally, you can do your banking from anywhere—while you’re on vacation, business travel or waiting at the practice fields with your kids.
Instant Access to All Accounts. Instead of relying on a monthly paper statement, online banking provides consumers with instant access and visibility to all account balances and activities in almost real time. You can set up alerts for low balances or large transfers, helping you track activity that impacts your balance.
Easy Bill Payment. If you leverage an online bill service, such as ePay you can cut out the steps of writing checks, stuffing envelopes and buying stamps. It takes little time to set up, but once you’ve dropped in your payee information, account numbers and addresses, you’re ready to go. You can establish reoccurring payments, or insert owed amounts online for one-time payments. Set it and forget it.
Transfer Time is Almost Instantaneous. If you need to transfer funds from one account to another, you can make a few clicks and funds are transferred right away from almost any mobile device or computer.
Mobile Deposit. While most Americans utilize direct deposit for their employment checks, occasionally there is still the need to deposit a physical check. With the UNIFY Mobile App Banking, you can simply snap a pic of your check with your smartphone and deposit it from virtually anywhere. No need to drive to the actual branch or visit an ATM.
Online banking can be done from anywhere with an Internet connection. If you want to learn more about online banking, visit our site on UNIFY’s eServices.
