The news is out…we’re going back to the big dance.
My Virtual StrongBox has been selected to present at FinovateFall 2014! We’ll be debuting some awesome new features we’ve added to the product since its debut two years ago at FinovateFall 2012.
Finovate is the premier showcase for financial technology. If you’re familiar with companies and products like DashLane, MoneyDesktop and Yodlee, it might be because they were onstage at a Finovate conference.
Finovate conferences last only a few days and are conducted with terrific speed and focus. There are no long-winded presentations, no foot-dragging…every presentation gets the same amount of time (seven minutes, not one second more) and must be focused on the demonstration of the product or service in action.
Tech writers, investment firms, big banks, think-tanks and many more attend FinovateFall each year to see what’s new in the world of financial technology. They tingle with anticipation with each new presenter, waiting to see what new advancement they have to offer…and watching the clock to make sure the speaker avoids “the gong.”
Why We’re So Excited
My Virtual StrongBox began with a simple idea: “where can people save their important documents online, securely?” Traditional cloud storage solutions just weren’t safe for things like wills, deeds, birth certificates and other crucial articles. We created My Virtual StrongBox to be the online version of a safe deposit box, a service that has been around for hundreds of years in banks and credit unions of all sizes.
Even as more personal banking is done online and via mobile app, more documents are being shared electronically, like insurance policies, healthcare cards, medical histories, to name a few. It only makes sense to have a service like My Virtual StrongBox to store those electronic documents privately and to manage them in conjunction with the people customers trust most in life.
But no good technology stays the same over two full years. As users increase and people start taking advantage of the service, new needs come to light. Good ideas emerge and fall into place. The technology surrounding the product improves and the product improves along with it. My Virtual StrongBox is improving, with greater functionality and accessibility, more customization, and better features for the clients that offer it to their users. What you’ll see at this FinovateFall presentation is version 2.0 of a product that is already helping customers and clients in ten states, at fourteen different FI’s of all sizes.
