"Hi: I just learned how to deposit a cheque by taking a picture of it with my phone. I can't believe how easy it was! I'm not a high tech person & I don't even have a data plan on my phone. It didn't cost anything to download the app that enabled me deposit my cheque via wi-fi! It's incredible! So easy! The app led me through the steps & the money was pretty much immediately in my ECU account! So much easier than driving to the branch to make a deposit."

"I have used the e-transfer function a couple of times lately and found it to be very easy to do and quite user friendly. Always a pleasure to walk into the bank and see the smiles on all your faces which proves you like working there and appreciate the customers."
