PC Financial to launch a mobile banking app “in the upcoming months”

While some Canadian banking institutions are already plugging away at mobile payments, PC Financial is wrestling with launching a mobile app. The Loblaws driven financial service, provided by CIBC, has approximately 2.3 million customers and some people have been requesting an app for months. Having a mobile banking app is basically standard these days. Offering simple features like checking account status, transfer funds, find ATM’s or contacting the closest branch makes the banking experience a more pleasant one. However, PC took to Facebook and communicated to their clients that they’re making great headway in launching an app “in the upcoming months,” which still makes it eons away.

“At President’s Choice Financial, our goal is to provide exceptional customer service, while making everyday banking simple and better for Canadians. While we have not yet launched a mobile banking app, we can promise you we are making great strides to roll out this application in the upcoming months.

We pride ourselves on listening to our customers – we do hear you, and we know providing a PC Financial mobile app is long overdue. Be assured that we’re working diligently to develop an app that meets the unique needs of our customers—those of you who rely on us for no-catch, no fee banking, including full functionality across a number of platforms and devices.

With new, cutting-edge technologies coming onto the market daily, our development team is working to ensure this app provides the very best experience possible for you, our valued customers.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding.

In addition, no indication of what platforms they’re working. Hopefully when they do launch they’ll make it available on iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone. Would also be cool if they developed an app for The Mobile Shop that gave latest deals, promos, and closest location.
