At Mercantile Bank, we take pride in providing our customers with innovative and helpful banking technology.  We are excited to announce that we are preparing for a major upgrade to our Online Banking, Mobile Banking and Bill Pay systems.  We believe these new resources will provide a new level of banking convenience.  These upgrades will ensure that managing your online accounts will be both easy and convenient.

The new Online Banking system is incredibly intuitive and easy to navigate.  As a part of the effortless navigation, you will be able to use a single login for both Online and Mobile Banking.  Our upgraded online bank statements are redesigned to make them more visually appealing and most importantly will be easier to read.  You will be able to print online statements as a pdf in the same format as the paper version.  If you would like to be notified when online statements are ready, you will be able to receive email alerts to let you know they are ready to be viewed.  Additionally, you will now be able to review your account history from the past 24 months.

Our new MercMoney personal finance management tools provide cutting edge banking technology that will impress.  If you have struggled with budgeting in the past, we believe these new resources will help you take control of your finances and simplify your life.  Budgeting, account aggregation, auto categorization, and debt management are a few of the tools that will allow you to visualize and interact with your money in a variety of constructive ways.  For example, all of your transactions will be automatically categorized when you enroll for MercMoney.  You will be able to examine your spending in a variety of ways that makes sense to you.  We also will have our new MercMoney app for additional convenience to the tools. Our MercMoney app along with our MercMobile app for the Apple and Android platforms will be available for download on October 23, 2013.

There are numerous amounts of new features and improvements with this upgrade.  Please visit our website (www.mercbank.com) to make note of the dates in which these changes are taking place.  We will also be hosting a library of tutorial videos to illustrate many of the new features.  We eagerly anticipate the release of this upgrade and are certain that you will appreciate it as much as we do.
