Security Credit Union launches CUSG's LifeSteps™ Wallet
mobile banking enhancement app
Livonia, Mich., Grand Blanc, Mich. (February 26, 2018) — Today, CU Solutions Group (CUSG) announced that its fully integrated LifeSteps Wallet app — a mobile banking enhancement suite designed to position credit unions top of wallet and top of mind with members — has been released to Security Credit Union.
Branded for Security Credit Union and immediately available to its members on iOS and Android platforms, LifeSteps Wallet is designed to enhance the credit union's mobile offerings while matching important solutions with its members' major life events and everyday financial decisions. Through Security Credit Union's new LifeSteps Wallet app, features and functionality now accessible to members include:
- Credit Union Services: Access mobile banking, send and receive money, view latest interest rates, apply for loans, find nearby ATMs, chat with a credit union representative and more.
- Shopping: Discover nearby merchants and exclusive deals, access national brand discounts, securely store receipts and loyalty cards, book travel at considerable savings and more.
- Auto: Research, build, price and finance new and used vehicles, store maintenance records, get on-demand roadside assistance and more.
- Home: Search for-sale and rental listings, discover property values, find trusted contractors, track repair invoices, get design inspiration and more.
- Financial Wellness: Uncover identity theft risk, monitor credit score, gain access to discounted legal resources and more.
"Everything in this app is customized by the credit union, for its members, with the goal of promoting how the credit union helps members with many of life's big shopping and maintenance decisions," said Dave Adams, president and CEO of CU Solutions Group. "When a member researches a merchant or accesses a deal, the credit union credit card is top of mind in this expanded mobile banking app —when they browse homes and vehicles, credit union financing and insurance are a single tap away."
An innovative leader in the financial services industry, Security Credit Union joins a product development community of credit unions that will share ideas for next generation enhancements.
"We are pleased to have partnered with CU Solutions Group to provide our members with the smart technology within LifeSteps Wallet to give more simplicity and convenience in their lives," said Christopher Estes, president and CEO of Security Credit Union. "We are dedicated to delivering trusted products and services to our members. This app is a great way to have easy access to a wide variety of tools and credit union products and services."
The entire suite of LifeSteps Wallet mobile banking enhancements is built to allow for a more affordable integration of features without disrupting the credit union's core mobile banking app. As such, Security's LifeSteps Wallet application integrates seamlessly with CO-OP Mobile, Security Credit Union's current mobile banking provider, and is the first such integration of its kind.
LifeSteps Wallet is designed to work with any mobile banking platform on the market, and CUSG plans to launch on several additional platforms during 2018. Moreover, if a credit union changes its mobile banking provider, this container of enhancement features remains as a consistent, recognizable mobile experience for members.
