We all know life can be super busy and hectic, so we are always looking for ways to save time. It’s this ongoing quest for convenience and speed that has made pre-made meals and two-day shipping popular staples of our lives. The good news is that banking has also evolved, offering new tools and services that put the power of immediate, personalized and self-service money management at your fingertips.
Below are five simple banking shortcuts that may help you find more time in your busy schedule:
1. Open an Account Online
When you’re on the go, it can be hard to find time to stop into a branch to open a bank account. The option to open an account online, from checking or savings to small business accounts, through a computer or via a mobile device can be really helpful when you’re busy. With Rockland Trust, for instance, opening an account online takes less than five minutes.

2. Prevent Debit Card Fraud with SecurLOCK
SecurLOCK is an app with spending controls for your debit card, like limiting or eliminating spending at certain locations. Another interesting feature is the ability to immediately turn an active card off and back on with the touch of a button. If you don’t use your debit card often, you can turn it off until you’re ready to make a purchase. Give yourself peace of mind with this added layer of security that you control right at your fingertips.
If you’re like most people, you likely use multiple subscription services from Netflix and Spotify to your internet and cable bill. CardSwap is a one-stop-shop that enables you to easily switch which card pays for these services. Best of all, it’s integrated right into your online banking platform. It’s also a great way to see the subscription services you’re using your debit card to pay for — letting you review the ones you may not want or need anymore.
4. Bill Pay
Available online or through mobile, Bill Pay helps you manage your bill payments electronically.
You can schedule payments as they are due or set up automatic payments, as well as see account balances and your bills all in one place.
5. Apple Watch
Sometimes you need to quickly check an account balance before making a purchase. With the Apple Watch app, you can view 10 accounts,10 transactions and the 10 most recent balances right on your wrist.
