SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2013
SAN DIEGO, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego County Credit Union^®
(SDCCU®), San Diego's largest locally-owned financial institution, has
announced a new capability to its mobile technology for SDCCU customers using
Android™ or iPhone^® mobile devices. SDCCU's new Easy Balance Transfer app
makes it possible for SDCCU Visa credit cardholders, using their mobile
phones, to transfer their credit card accounts from other financial
institutions to an attractive, low-rate SDCCU Visa^® credit card. SDCCU
reports it is one of the first institutions in the nation to offer this
innovative, cutting-edge mobile technology from mobile imaging company Mitek
Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: MITK)whose technology also enables SDCCU Mobile
Deposit, the organization's mobile check deposit service.
SDCCU's new Easy Balance Transfer app is available from either iTunes^® or
Google Play^®. Here's how it works: SDCCU Visa credit cardholders can simply
use their online banking username and password to log into the Easy Balance
Transfer App and then use the app to take a photo of the bottom payment stub
from a credit card bill from another financial institution. The app will read
the company's name, address and payment amount. Then, the SDCCU customer,
after reviewing the card information, can click "submit" to conveniently
process the balance transfer.
"SDCCU customers don't need to remain burdened with a large credit card
balance at a big bank when a credit card balance transfer is so quick, easy
and secure using your mobile phone," said San Diego County Credit Union
President & CEO Teresa Halleck. "This new app is just another way SDCCU is
providing a better banking experience to our customers on the go."
"The ability to snap a photo of a credit card statement with a smartphone to
shop for a better credit card offer is a win-win for both San Diego County
Credit Union and their customers," said Mitek President and CEO, James
DeBello."SDCCU is offering an easy, engaging and paperless approach to
acquire new credit card balances through the mobile channel."
