Mobile Banking Updates - Sept 15

PNC banks on digital age
"Skott Dickerson likes his bank to have a lot of branches. But what he really loves is for it to have a killer app for his banking needs. 'Branches are still important. But online banking and mobile banking are definitely a priority of mine,' said Dickerson, 35, of Irwin. A Pittsburgh-area native, he chose PNC Bank for that reason when he moved back in January from Indianapolis.

Dickerson is the kind of customer PNC Financial Services Group Inc. hopes to snare when it marches into the Southeast for the first time next year: Those willing to jump to a new bank with their smartphones and laptops — not necessarily with their feet — into a branch."

Barcode readers and mobile e-invoices
"During summer I was toying around idea how mobile payments could be combined with barcode readers. Some of my friends have with their iPhone online banking app. They can scan new paper payments with camera and barcode. When scanning picture they upload document info to banking app and pay. It seems to work fine with them.

For this idea, I started to make idea, where one phone app could generate barcodes, send message to email-address or as sms to phone. Receiving party would get message, open his app and read barcode. This message would be then read by own banking app on phone and payment would be executed by phone. "

More and more, banking goes mobile
"AlixPartners LLP, the global business-advisory firm based in New York, last month announced a deal to buy Boston-based Mercatus LLC, a consulting firm that advises banks and investment firms. Globe reporter Todd Wallack spoke with Mercatus founder and managing partner Robert Hedges about the deal and trends in the industry."
