US Bank corporate travel and purchasing card clients will be able to retrieve account information on the go, with the bank’s launch of its AccessOnline Mobile app.
A complement to Access Online, the bank’s data management and reporting tool, the app provides real-time access to essential account information.
The app simplifies account management for the cardholder and reduces the burden on programme administrators. It provides account summary information, such as balance, transaction history and payment due dates. Upcoming enhancements include fraud, transaction, and security alerts; electronic receipt attachment; and mobile single-use account payment capability.
“Mobile devices are blurring the line between corporate and consumer need,” said Dominic Venturo, chief innovation officer for US Bank. “Customers want a consistent, familiar experience, whether they’re paying their mortgage at home or managing invoices at work. Tools must be simple, intuitive, and offer high-value, low-cost functionality. This app delivers on all counts in a very real way.”
The app is also available through iTunes and Google Play.
