First Data Partners with MoneyDesktop

Press Release

April 20, 2012

Today’s tech-savvy consumers expect their financial institution to deliver an integrated customer experience across channels, with greater access to financial information, payments, and commerce capabilities. Research has shown that having a single location to manage their money is important to most consumers.

To address this requirement as part of its universal commerce vision for financial institutions, First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing, announced it has signed an agreement with Utah-based MoneyDesktop, Inc. to integrate the company’s personal financial management (PFM) tool into the First Data Online Banking (also known as FundsXpress fx eBanking) offering. The solution offers consumers the latest PFM technology and enables them to make better-informed decisions through a simple, intuitive navigation integrated into First Data’s online banking solution.

The PFM tool includes account aggregation from more than 10,000 financial institutions as well as budgeting and debt management tools to help financial institution customers manage all of their financial accounts in one place. It will be available to First Data Online Banking customers beginning in the third quarter of 2012.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"As technology shifts the expectations of banking customers to increasingly higher levels, we are laser-focused on creating innovations that will be fundamental to the future success of financial institutions,” said Ryan Caldwell, CEO of MoneyDesktop. “Partnering with a leader like First Data means that together we can significantly impact the future for financial institutions and empower them to deliver a superior online banking experience. This also means that First Data’s clients will have a competitive edge in driving customer loyalty, wallet-share, and loan volume.”

First Data offers a full portfolio of integrated online banking and bill payment products, enabling financial institutions to increase customer retention, attract new customers, streamline internal processes and create new sources of revenue. The online banking solutions are built using an application service provider (ASP) model, giving financial institutions the freedom to easily upgrade and modify their solutions, which means they can offer cutting-edge technology while improving their customer acquisition and retention opportunities.

“To retain existing customers and attract new ones in the world of universal commerce, financial institutions must keep their online self-service channels up-to-date with the latest features and tools,” said Russell Randolph, senior vice president and Global Product leader for Network, Debit and ATM Solutions, at First Data. “Bringing the superior PFM technology from MoneyDesktop into our online banking solution is another example of First Data’s commitment to providing the technology that fuels a satisfying experience for end consumers.”
