WSECU and Fuze Announce Mobile Offering



This morning I ran across a new FI that has jumped into the mobile arena, and is utilizing a vendor that I'm not familiar with. The credit union $1.2 billion Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) has selected Fuze as their mobile banking vendor.

It appears as though they've taken a slightly unique approach at mobile by combining a WAP solution with a Rich UX solution. The WAP solution can be reach at http://www.wsecu.mobi/ where you have two options: 1) click on "Mobile Finance Manager" where you're taken to a WAP login or 2) click to download an application to your device.

You call the solution "unique". Does that mean you think this is a viable solution? We are evaluating our options for providing mobile services and are unsure of what route to take. We are a credit union of similar size to WSECU.

Dear anonymous,

I promise that I haven't forgotten about your comment. I began to write a reply and it took on a life of its own. I will most likely post the response on the Mobile Money and Banking blog within the next couple of days. Again, I apologize for the delay, but you asked a tremendous question and I wanted to give it a well thought out response.

Sincerely,
B.McGee
