Associated Bank has introduced a digital checking option to enable customers manage their bank accounts entirely from an electronic device.

The latest offering, named Associated Access Checking, will operate as a digital-centric transactional product. Customers can open the account from their mobile devices.

According to the bank, it will offer the customers the benefits of a no-paper-needed account. It includes no minimum balance requirement or any monthly maintenance fees.

The account will provide multiple options for digital transactions real-time alerts, biometric mobile access and Zelle personal payment service. Furthermore, it includes the options of online bill pay and SnapDeposit, the lender’s exclusive mobile deposit capture.

Associated Access Checking customers can also avail a Platinum Debit Mastercard or a card from Associated’s affinity debit card portfolio.

Associated Bank director of consumer banking Tony Baumgardt said: “Today’s customers are constantly on the go and we’ve seen this reflected in how our customers choose to transact.

“The new Associated Access Checking gives our customers the tools to bank at their fingertips from anywhere and without paying a monthly maintenance fee.

“All of our enhancements to the customer digital experience have made banking more convenient than ever.”

The introduction of the new service is aligned with the bank’s strategy to improve digital banking channels. The move will benefit the customers who use only digital banking or use bank branches infrequently.

Headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Associated Banc-Corp has $33bn in assets. It offers full range of financial products and services through its 240 banking locations.
