MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.-First Tech FCU, the credit union for Microsoft Corp., said it has introduced a new Windows Phone mobile banking application, the first credit union in the U.S. to introduce a native Windows Phone mobile banking app complete with integrated mobile deposit and bill pay functionality.
First Tech launched its new Windows phone app on-site at the main Microsoft campus in Redmond, Wash., giving employees of Microsoft an in-depth look at this new platform. Microsoft employees and First Tech members will be able to view the app on a giant Microtile phone display, chat with First Tech App experts and personalize their Windows Phone at a laser engraving station.
"As Microsoft's credit union, it's very important for us to serve our members and demonstrate our support of the Windows 8 mobile platform," said Greg Mitchell, president of the $5.6-billion credit union. "We're proud to be the first credit union in the country to offer a native mobile app for smart phones powered by Microsoft. This addition to the First Tech suite of products is yet another step in our plan to provide members with state-of-the-art products and services and the ability to transact anytime and at any place of their choosing."
The First Tech Windows Phone app is a free download for its members at windowsphone.com.
First Tech launched its first mobile app for iOS and Android platforms in August 2012.
