Univest Bank and Trust Co.℠ Introduces Anytime Voice ID
SOUDERTON, Pa., January 6, 2012 - Univest Bank
and Trust Co.SM (NASDAQ:
UVSP), a full-service financial institution with more than 135
years of experience in delivering financial solutions including
personal and business banking, online banking, residential mortgages,
insurance products, investment and wealth advisory solutions*,
announced the launch of its Anytime Voice ID service.
This free service provides added
security to Univest customers calling the bank for assistance as
Univest can now identify a customer by simply using the customer's
voice. The Univest Anytime Voice ID is not a voice recording - it
is a mathematical model of a person's voice that is encrypted and
unable to be used in any other way by another system or person.
When a customer enrolls in this service, their identity is verified
thereafter with a much higher degree of certainty than other
methods of identification.
In addition to heightening
security, this new service also brings added convenience. For
enrolled customers, they receive immediate assistance from a
Univest Service Center representative without being required to
provide additional information to verify their identity.
"Univest is proud to be the first
community bank in our region to provide this free, convenient
service to our customers," said Louis P. Spinelli, executive vice
president and director of consumer strategy and delivery, Univest
Bank and Trust Co.SM "This innovative, new service
complements our competitive suite of electronic service offerings
and provides biometric security to our customer base."
