The firm behind the u4ia memory cards payment solution is set to provide a range of services to a major US credit union, it has been revealed.
Various mobile banking services will be offered to Star One Credit Union by Tyfone through the new agreement which has been formed between the organisations.
Account aggregation and rate watch capabilities are among the services which could now be offered to Star One clients, it is believed.
The credit union's vice-president of remote services, Margarete Mucker, discussed the thinking behind the new agreement.

New memory stick 'could boost password security'31 May 2011 15:10:07
A new USB memory stick device could help to improve people's standards of password security, it has been suggested.
Cambridge News has reported that a product called the sCrib has been developed by experts at the city's Smart Architects, with key logging among the threats it is hoped the product could potentially address.
Commenting on the new innovation, designer Dr Dan Cvrcek noted that password security can be something of a problem for certain UK firms.
He told the news provider: "The feedback we have had from firms has been very positive, but we would like to get more people to try out the device to help us make enhancements."
When it comes to the use of USB technology, Kingston Digital also released details of its new DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation product earlier in the month.
This will now be the company's quickest USB flash drive, Kingston additionally revealed.
Memory cards up for discussion at workshop events31 May 2011 15:08:26
Memory cards are among the technologies which are set to be touched upon during a new series of workshop events, it has been revealed.
The Photo District News HDSLR workshops, which Zacuto is sponsoring and Photo Quest Adventures is producing, will offer guidance to stills photographers who would like to learn more about creating video footage with the help of DSLR cameras.
Hard drives and essential lenses are some of the other areas which the seminars will address.
Eduardo Angel, one of the workshop's hosts, commented that he is keen to remove the fear of shooting video.
He stated: "Overall, I believe the most important thing to consider when shooting video is how to communicate a story."
Mr Angel added: "There are similarities and differences between shooting stills and shooting video."
Earlier this year, Zacuto also confirmed that it would be sponsoring the 2011 New York Film Academy Road Show.
