Q2, a provider of enterprise solutions for secure virtual banking, together with Urban Partnership Bank, has announced the successful implementation of upbAnywhere for online and mobile banking.
Using the Q2platform, Urban Partnership Bank account holders can now securely access their bank accounts and manage money whenever and wherever they want using a computer, tablet or mobile phone.
“It’s a whole new world in retail banking,” said Brian K. Jones, director of virtual banking products and services at Urban Partnership Bank. “Account holders increasingly want the option to bank on their terms, without having to make a trip to a physical location. By partnering with Q2 on the implementation of upbAnywhere, we are delivering a state-of-the-art virtual banking alternative that we believe will appeal to these customers.”
“Urban Partnership Bank has an amazingly acute understanding of their account holders and their preferences. They came to us eager to implement a unified online and mobile experience that would allow them to engage with customers on a whole new level,” said Matt Flake, CEO and president of Q2. “Urban Partnership account holders are no longer constrained by bankers’ hours or limited by access to a brick and mortar establishment. It’s a pleasure to help a progressive bank provide a branded offering that delivers a customer experience that is consistent and secure across all digital channels.”
