Today's account holders want to bank when, where, and how they want. Helios meets those needs by enabling a full-feature digital banking experience on any device or platform—tablet, desktop, and phone. Best of all, Helios is a native cross-platform framework, which means it's fast, stable, and device optimized.
Helios is everything a cross-platform experience should be. It not only works on all devices and channels, but it also contains financial management and transactional functionality by leveraging our digital banking partnerships. It's the seamless experience end users crave.
BECU partnered with MX to offer their members the Helios cross-platform framework. Within 18 months of launching Helios, BECU saw:
Thousands of reviewers, 4.8 star average
The new update really had made a huge difference and has increased my confidence in my personal bank. I have left all my other budgeting and finance apps behind because the new BECU app has everything I need in one place! Way to go.
I love being able to sync other financial institutions apps into BECU's app. Only having to open one app and seeing where all of my accounts are at is not only convenient but extremely easy. It's PERFECT!
I just got all my bills and transfers taken care of with the app while laying in bed. This tech is wonderful!
Excellent! Loved the app before, love the new app upgrades! Long time BECU customer, been out of the state for 12 years, and the customer service is phenomenal!
I love the new fingerprint identification login. It’s easy to use, has TONS of helpful info, and makes transfers, bill pay and check depositing a snap. I’ve lived outside of WA 8 years now and still keep BECU because it’s easy to use.
I’m honestly quite impressed with the quality and functionality of this app, especially considering AFCU is a relatively small fish in the shitshow that is financial banking. I guess you could call AFCU the Shitlord! 10/10
"We saw Helios as a chance to stand out and provide a very different experience. This means leading with digital money management, alert capabilities, aggregation, budgeting — all features that would enable our members to be financially strong."
