GTE Financial has an app for that: Credit union unveils feature-filled mobile app for easier, more convenient banking

TAMPA, FL (January 6, 2017) — GTE Financial is putting the power of managing money at its members’ fingertips with the launch of its all-inclusive GTE Mobile app later this month. The app is designed to give members the best credit union experience with convenient features like Deposit2Go, which gives the ability to quickly scan and deposit checks in real-time, and Bill Pay, a convenient and secure way to pay bills. Members will be able to view balances, transaction history, bill payments and locate ATMs along with many other key features.

GTE Financial has previously offered mobile capabilities to its members via various apps, but brings all of those features and more together in the newest app.

“GTE Financial gets almost 4.3 million mobile logins every year. Every one of those logins is an important touch point and an opportunity to further connect with our membership,” says Chad Burney, SVP, chief operating and information officer of GTE Financial. “Service-focused innovation is what makes GTE a special credit union! With the new Mobile Banking App, members will enjoy SMS banking, integrated Bill Pay and Deposit2GO, Mobile Alerts, Easy Transfers, Tap for Balances, Live Chat and much more,” added Burney.

GTE Financial has consistently been a leader in embracing new technology and enhancing its members’ experience with cutting-edge virtual channels like OnScreen, where members interact with a Member Advocate in real-time, right on a screen. Earlier this year, GTE added a variety of Ways to Pay options for members to utilize mobile wallets and make retail purchases using their mobile devices.

GTE Mobile will combine a variety of services previously offered via GTE Financial mobile apps into one, sleek platform. Services available via the new app include:

  • Bill Pay
  • Deposit2GO
  • Tap for instant balances
  • Mobile messaging
  • Location search
  • All GTE accounts in one place
  • The ability to complete Friends & Family transfers

Members will still be able to utilize GTE’s mobile site and enjoy all of the convenience it offers. GTE Mobile will operate on all Apple and Android phones and tablets and is available for free download in the App Store and Google Play.
