March 6, 2019 – Denver, CO – Today Citywide Banks launched mobile account opening for business deposit products. The bank currently offers online account opening for consumer deposit products. Customers can now open business checking, savings and money market accounts online. In an industry where technology is quickly moving toward digital connectivity, online account opening is the next step in meeting customer needs.

“We are pleased to offer this new convenience to Colorado businesses,” commented Joanne Sherwood, President and CEO, Citywide Banks. “Online account opening for business accounts, coupled with the benefits of our local community banking model, gives us a unique competitive advantage.”

Fuller, who also oversees digital strategy for all of Heartland, believes development in this space is critical for the success of their business. “We believe business demands in the mobile channel follow the lead of individual consumers, and the expectation is to be just as cutting edge as other high-tech companies like Amazon or Apple,” said Fuller. “As an organization, we are committed to making our services available to customers when and where they want them. Our goal is to provide a full service bank on a smartphone app, and make employees in branches and service centers instantly aware of customer needs. This gives them the ability to make suggested solutions based upon information gathered in the mobile channel. Having a complete, full service bank in your hand, that’s powerful. This bank has been here for almost 85 years, and we are building the foundation for the next 85 years.”
