BankOn Mobile by Financial Town wins 2016 Compass Intelligence Award

The award recognizes BankOn Mobile as “Rookie of the Year” in mobile devices and software

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (September 8, 2016) — BankOn Mobile by Financial Town, the world’s first interactive mobile video banking solution, today announced it has won the 2016 Rookie of the Year award in mobile devices and software by market analytics and consulting firm Compass Intelligence.

“This great recognition by Compass Intelligence is a testament to our remarkable team and partnerships with leading institutions to bring mobile video to the forefront of financial services,” said Financial Town founder and CEO Gene Pranger, who pioneered the video banking with the uGenius platform in 2010. “Through mobile video, BankOn Mobile is placing a branch in everyone’s pocket—and ushering in a new generation of customer service and experience.”

The winning BankOn Mobile platform, which recently demonstrated the industry’s first international mobile video banking call, utilizes face-to-face mobile video and customizable management software to help banks and credit unions offer unprecedented access to live financial service representatives, tools and other services, regardless of time or location. Through the mobile app or web portal, members can use their own mobile devices to initiate live video chats, participate in presentations by sales and service representatives, deposit checks, upload documents and electronically sign documents in real time—removing the need for either party to be in an office or branch location. 

“We are honored to recognize innovative enterprise mobile companies enhancing business and in this case advancing the financial services and banking industry,” states Compass Intelligence founder and CEO Stephanie Atkinson. 

The 4th Annual Compass Intelligence Awards honor the top companies in mobile devices and software, wireless technology, platforms, Internet of Things, wearables, reuse/recycling of devices, connected products and emerging solutions. The 2016 Awards were selected by more than 40 industry-leading press, editors, journalists, thought leaders and analysts covering technology. For more information about the awards visit
