Park Sterling Bank has rolled out the newest version of its mobile banking app, which enhances the customer experience on mobiles or tablet devices.

The bank is providing customers the Picture Pay mobile photo bill pay solution and Debit Card Management in collaboration with Malauzai Software, a Texas-based mobile app developer.

Picture Pay enables customers, who use Park Sterling’s mobile banking app, to complete a bill payment in three simple steps, including take a photo of the bill statement, confirm the amount to be paid, and submit the payment to the financial institution.

Additionally, the lender has also introduced Debit Card On/Off, a portion of Debit Card Management, designed to allow users to turn their bank-issued debit card on and off with the swipe of a finger.

In order to thwart any possibility of the card being used fraudulently, Park Sterling mobile user can temporarily disable their card between transactions. The functionality is also useful when a debit card is lost.

Available to account holders free of charge, the Park Sterling’s mobile app enables users to view balances, deposit cheques, view account activity, view recent check images, transfer funds, set up security alerts, and locate a branch or ATM.

Park Sterling CEO Jim Cherry said, "Consumers now expect their bank to be available 24/7/365 and our mobile banking app allows Park Sterling to fulfill that expectation."

"Picture Pay and Debit On/Off both offer unparalleled convenience to our account holders, while maintaining high security levels, and are just the latest in a long line of advanced mobile functionalities enjoyed by account holders."
