FINOVATE – New York, NY, September 24, 2014– Today Linqto launched Personal Banker, a patent-pending software application that allows
face-to-face mobile banking with in-branch bank representatives. With live video tellers, a customers’ mobile device becomes a neighborhood branch.
Linqto, with early roots of providing streaming media technologies to Stanford University and the Obama for America campaign, specializes in streaming
video conferencing and financial services applications.
Linqto Personal Banker, a “Mayday” button for banking, enables direct video, audio and text communication between bank employees and customers.
Customers receive face-to-face, personalized assistance with the convenience of online or mobile banking. Transactions are carried out with full
support from local bank representatives, exactly as it would happen in a customer’s physical presence at the branch. For participating banks,
Linqto maximizes use of remote branches and valued bank employees who can now provide virtual assistance to customers of other busier branch locations.
