Online & Mobile Banking

New Year...New Look...New Enhancements

Launched January 2018

As we start a new year, we are excited about the opportunities we have to enhance our Members’ online and mobile banking experience. Last year our eServices team worked diligently on integrating our online, mobile, and bill pay services onto one banking platform. "Merging these services into one system will allow us to provide our Members with one seamless experience," says Jose Loera, eServices Manager. "With more and more Members using their phones vs computers, we want to bring our Members more functionality to their mobile app." With the launch of 4X, Southland’s Online and Mobile Banking will not only share the same look, it will offer the same experience. If you are not already a Mobile Banking user, you can download the Southland App from the Google Play or Apple App stores. Our current mobile users will also need to update their app. App users will receive a notification when the update is available. Once updated, new features will be available. New features available will include:

  • Tiled Homepage – Working tiles are mobile friendly and offer shortcuts to transactions most used on mobile banking, allowing Members to customize the layout.
  • Touch ID for iOS App - After update, go into the Account Management section and enable Touch ID. Once enabled, Touch ID and Facial Recognition will work.

"I am excited for the year ahead. We have a number of features and enhancements that will be rolling out this year, that I know our Members are going to love," says Jose. The deployment of 4X will allow our eServices Department to add the features and enhancements that our Members have been asking for. Future enhancements include:

  • Card Services – Activate your Southland cards, set card alerts, parental controls, spending limits, block and unblock your Southland Card, and more.
  • Individual Sign On – Sign on with your own unique user name and password. Any and all accounts you have, primary or joint, will be provided. This will allow you the convenience of viewing all your accounts and the ability to transfer between multiple account numbers.
  • Alert Enhancements – Stay on top of your account activity. Alert enhancements will also include real-time transactions and the option for text alerts.

We will continue to work hard in 2018 to bring you all of the latest and greatest advances in mobile and online banking technology. Watch for future announcements and details as they are released. Happy Banking!
