CIBC first to offer mobile banking app for iPhone
Lets clients easily bank on the go
CIBC recently announced its CIBC Mobile Banking App is available from the App Store, offering greater flexibility and choice for CIBC clients to bank on the go by becoming the first major bank in Canada to offer a mobile banking App for iPhone. The App gives CIBC clients the flexibility to use their iPhone or iPod touch to check account balances, transfer funds, pay bills and even send INTERAC Email Money Transfers.
"CIBC is proud to be the first major bank in Canada to offer our clients a Mobile Banking App to make banking with CIBC even more flexible on their iPhone," said Sonia Baxendale, President CIBC Retail Markets. "Whether waiting for the bus, sitting in the bleachers at their child's minor hockey game, or having a coffee at their local coffee shop, our clients can perform their day-to-day banking transactions conveniently and securely, anytime and from anywhere they can access the internet on their phones."
The new Mobile Banking App also uses GPS technology in the iPhone to help clients find their nearest branch or ABM based on their current location.
"Our clients told us they want more flexibility to bank however and whenever they want and we've responded," said Baxendale. "In addition to making day-to-day banking more flexible, clients can now use their iPhone to quickly find their nearest CIBC branch or ABM, a great tool when you are shopping, traveling, or looking for a branch across town or across the country."
The CIBC Mobile Banking App is backed by CIBC's award-winning Online Banking, named Canada's "Best Consumer Internet Bank" by Global Finance magazine, and offers worry-free banking with the CIBC Online Security Guarantee. Additional enhancements to CIBC's Mobile Banking offer will be announced in the coming months.
The CIBC Mobile Banking App is also available on the iPod Touch, which clients can use over a wi-fi connection. Clients can visit the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or go to http://www.cibc.com/cibcapp/ for a free download of the CIBC Mobile Banking App. Once downloaded, users will be asked to provide their CIBC debit card or credit card number and Online Banking password.
