Alerus Retirement Solutions Launches Mobile App for Retirement Plan Participants

GRAND FORKS, ND--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - Alerus Retirement Solutions, a division of Alerus Financial, N.A., introduces a mobile app, available for both iPhone and Android devices. With the Alerus Retirement Solutions mobile application, retirement plan participants receive fast and secure inquiry access to their account information. The app allows Alerus Retirement Solutions to build a closer relationship with the participants on a day to day basis. Participants can view account activity, current balance by investment and source, rate of return, and recent contribution information. "We are excited to offer this on-the-go solution for our growing population of mobile plan participants," said Brian Overby, president of Alerus Retirement Solutions.

The app gives participants an easy way to see their retirement account at-a-glance where they live, work, and play. They will also receive important personalized alerts about account events regarding contributions, loans, and market changes. The app positions Alerus Retirement Solutions as an industry leader, as Smartphones continue to be the fastest growing channel in the retirement business. Trent Richardson, president of PlanServe Data Systems added, "The mobile app is not only enabling recordkeepers to deliver a more focused account view to their participants, but it is also driving a deeper, personal relationship. Regardless of where the participant is, the ease of access with a simple click will quickly make the mobile app one of the most used channels."

Within the app, participant data is protected by the latest security encryption. The unique approach allows the participant to register and manage their mobile device through their Alerus Retirement Solutions online account.
