We have recently enhanced the functionality of our white-label, full-mobile banking app to include biometrics (fingerprint login), overseas notifications and feedback form as well as enhancing some current features. The next release of extra functionality is due in April/May.

Users with an iPhone 5s and above can now sign in to the app using their fingerprint, which will be safely stored in the device. For clients which also have our Vigil Fraud Bureau Service the app will allow customers to notify us about overseas travel, ensuring their cards will continue to function normally while travelling.

Commenting on the release, Cuscal’s Head of EFT, Acquiring and Digital, Colin Sultana said:

“This latest release builds on the existing functionality, including NFC tap and pay which we were the first to introduce in the Asia-Pacific, with CUA. These latest enhancements make our mobile banking app the most advanced of any white-label solution in Australia and equal to or better than some of the big banks’ offerings.

This is a very exciting time for mobile payments in Australia with Apple Pay arriving late last year in a limited form after a deal with Amex, Android Pay launching in Australia soon and Samsung Pay likely to arrive at some point this year.”

The next release of functionality for our full mobile banking app is due in April/May 2016 and is currently scheduled to include:

  • The ability to block cards
  • New and improved look and feel to the current mobile apps
