Sterling Bank Launches Business Mobile Banking Suite
SPOKANE, Wash. --(Business Wire)--
Sterling Bank, the principal operating subsidiary of Sterling
Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:STSA), today announced that it is
launching a robust business mobile banking suite. The Sterling Biz
Mobile app for iPhone and Android (News - Alert) devices is designed
specifically for business banking customers. Customers can also access
accounts through the Sterling Mobile Web platform to make transfers,
track recent transactions and pay bills, among other services.
"We are excited to debut the Sterling mobile banking suite to our
business customers to fulfill their desire to conveniently bank
on-the-go," said Patricia Baughman, SVP and product management and
market research executive at Sterling Bank. "The design of our new
business mobile offerings allows us to have a single, consistent user

Sterling Biz Mobile is available for free download today through the Apple
App Store and Google
Play. Unlike many other banks, Sterling offers mobile deposits at no
additional charge. Using the camera on a smartphone, customers can make
deposits simply by taking a picture of the front and back of an endorsed
check, entering the check amount and selecting the deposit account.
On-screen confirmations and email notifications communicate the status
of the deposit. The bank's Mobile Web solution is identical to its
smartphone app, but without the mobile deposit feature. For details,
To ensure business banking customers can make safe transactions across
these digital services, Mobile Web and mobile app platforms integrate
various security features such as advanced sign-on authentication, which
uses complex device identification at each sign-on to mobile banking.
When the service detects an unrecognized device, multifactor
authentication works to further verify the identity of customers before
accessing account information.
Baughman added, "We plan to launch an iPad app in the next 30 days. We
also are developing additional features, to be released throughout 2014,
including mobile transaction approvals for cash management services like
wire and ACH transactions."
