One can almost see the writing on the wall for traditional brick-and-mortar banking as branches close their doors, online-only banks continue to thrive, and more and more clients are choosing to take care of their financial errands by clicking a few times on a phone.

Such is the ostensible future of mobile banking as the convergence of smartphone popularity and popular laziness (or, alternatively, filled-up schedules) continue to rise. Customers are moving to mobile apps in what appear to be ever-increasing numbers, and as the cost of smartphones will inevitably decline, ownership of the devices will only continue to increase, and mobile banking will become an increasingly important part of strategy.

The mobile apps on offer for CIBC online banking run nearly the entire gamut of smartphone platforms, from iOS devices to Android and Blackberry, covering as many bases as possible for the bank. Future mobile apps may include other devices as well, but as it stands, the offer of three simultaneous mobile apps places CIBC in the upper echelon of availability ubiquity.

One might wonder, on the other hand, what the purpose of a mobile app is, when the website itself is easily accessible from the smartphone’s built-in browser, which allows access to the site as an ordinary computer would otherwise accomplish. However, there are a variety of advantages, all admittedly minor, which nevertheless add up to an overall superior experience for customers as well as banks when embracing mobile apps.

Firstly, the apps are designed to use the browser’s screen size and input functions, making it more specifically designed to such an environment than simply porting the website onto a smaller screen. Also, because extraneous links, graphics and other data does not need to be sent each time (the graphics are stored in the app, rather than being sent from servers every time, for example), the app can actually run faster than a website, if designed properly. Although a “mobile only” version of the online banking site could easily be designed, and many banks do just that, a mobile app will still have a one-touch launch, circumventing entirely the ignoble difficulty of having to type a web address into the browser. Admittedly these are not deal-breaking sources of difficulty; however, any amount of increased speed is going to increase customer use, satisfaction, and contribute to an overall positive experience.

CIBC has certainly seen the direction which online banking is likely to go, at least to a degree, and has supported the shift by developing mobile apps for a variety of platforms, which will contribute to overall customer satisfaction in a way that was impossible before. Other banks would be well advised to follow these developments and put forth their own online banking mobile apps for the clients who are continuously on the go, filling their busy lives with things more important than chores; or, more likely, to please the customers who don’t want to get off the couch to check their bank accounts. We need to be catered to as well.
