Mobile Banking Deployment: Partnering and Outsourcing

New Mercator Advisory Group research examines the trend of FIs outsourcing mobile banking development and deployment to strategic partners.  

In new research, Mobile Banking Deployment: Partnering and Outsourcing, Mercator Advisory Group reviews how the pace of innovation in mobility has caused financial institutions to consider new ways of bringing new mobile banking products to market efficiently and effectively.

"As the rapid pace of innovation in mobile banking continues, the use of partners to swiftly and reliably deploy new mobile banking features will make sense for a wider variety of financial institutions that desire to be more competitive in their markets and strive to differentiate themselves to their customers and members," comments Ed O'Brien, director of Mercator Advisory Group's Banking Channels Advisory Service and author of the report.

  • The status of mobile deployment at the largest U.S. banks
