Regions Bank has just confirmed plans to embrace mobile banking and a multitude of cutting edge mobile financial services in the coming weeks and months.
Regions Bank customers can expect to enjoy everything from remote deposit capture to various prepaid features.
A January 2013 report from Juniper Research finds that over one billion mobile phone users will have made use of their mobile devices for banking purposes by the end of 2017, compared to just over 590 million this year.
“More and more people are using the mobile channel to manage their finances, and we believe providing customers the ability to load a prepaid card or have immediate funds availability is significant,” said Chris Cox, head of Regions eBusiness. “Customers have quickly shown an appreciation for these options and a product that lets them choose how quickly they need access to their funds.”
Regions Bank has more than 1,700 branches across 16 states today.
