Bremer Bank to expand into mobile banking, payments with Mobiliti from Fiserv

Bremer Bank, an $8.1 billion bank headquartered in Minnesota, has selected Mobiliti as its mobile banking, payments and alerting engine.

Fiserv’s Mobiliti service will allow Bremer Bank customers access to their financial information via SMS (text messaging), mobile browser and downloadable applications for Android™ and iPhone.

Mobiliti will deliver a full range of mobile banking and payments capabilities including checking balances, locating ATMs, receiving alerts, paying bills and transferring funds. Bremer also plans to add a tablet version of Mobiliti in a future phase of its mobile banking service rollout.

"Delivering a feature-rich, easy-to-use mobile banking service to our customers is a strategic priority for Bremer Bank," said Deb Bauman, group president, Bremer Financial Services. "The mobile channel is evolving rapidly and we wanted a partner who could help us meet the demands of our customers while also providing us with operational flexibility and efficiencies."

With the adoption of smartphones continuously on the increase, Bremer Bank says it wanted to offer a comprehensive triple-play mobile solution with increased functionality and additional points of entry. In addition to providing three mobile access modes, Mobiliti includes a alerting engine, allowing consumers to more closely manage their finances by signing up for alerts that notify them of important account-related activity such as low balances or large withdrawals.

"Mobile has grown into its own unique channel with significant consumer adoption," said Erich Litch, division president, Digital Channels, Fiserv. "Bremer Bank is taking a strategic approach in meeting the evolving needs of its customers. Mobiliti will provide Bremer with a foundation to deliver the right mix of functionality and ease-of-use for their customers’ mobile banking and payment needs today, with the flexibility to grow as those needs evolve."
