Bluepoint Solutions and Access Softek Launch Integrated Mobile Banking, Capture Platform
–Industry leaders join forces to introduce robust mobile platform to community financial institutions–
VISTA, Calif. Sept. 16, 2010 Bluepoint Solutions, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and innovator in remote deposit capture (RDC), image-based item processing and enterprise content management (ECM) software technology for financial institutions, and Access Softek, a provider of home banking solutions for financial institutions, have partnered to offer community financial institutions a complete mobile banking application that seamlessly integrates mobile remote deposit capture capabilities. The integration of mobile banking and mobile remote deposit capture into a single application provides a more robust and user-friendly experience for the end-user.
Bluepoint’s mobile RDC platform, QwikDeposit To Go powered by Mitek Systems’ patented IMagePROVE technology, is now available as an integrated component of Access Softek’s proven Mobile Finance Manager, a downloadable online banking program that resides directly on a user’s smart phone. The integrated solution provides financial institutions with a sophisticated, complete mobile application that enables account holders to perform traditional banking services, as well as deposit checks, all from a single application on their mobile device.
“There is no denying the consumer demand for mobile banking services,” said Chris Doner, CEO of Access Softek. “The explosive growth of smart phones makes mobile remote deposit capture the next logical step for banks looking to offer a complete mobile application to account holders. Mobile banking users are primarily motivated by convenience. When an institution offers mobile deposit, it offers the most convenient deposit solution for its customers. This will inevitably result in getting a higher amount of deposits relative to institutions that do not offer mobile deposit. We have partnered with Bluepoint to extend our mobile banking application by integrating their best-of-breed mobile deposit technology. We are pleased to offer financial institutions a sophisticated mobile application that, until now, has been out-of-reach for most smaller institutions.”
Integrating mobile capture directly within a mobile banking application creates a more user-friendly experience, by allowing the accountholder to manage almost every banking function from the convenience of a mobile device. Industry analysts anticipate a high adoption rate for mobile remote deposit capture solutions, especially among current users of mobile banking applications. Juniper Research anticipates the number of people accessing banking services via mobile phones is set to increase to 816 million by 2011, a 10-fold increase since 2007. According to research conducted by research firm Mercatus, 59 percent of today’s mobile banking customers are likely to adopt mobile remote deposit capture if the technology is offered by their financial institution.
“Bluepoint has always been focused on bringing innovative technology solutions to financial institutions,” said Hal Tilbury, founder and CEO of Bluepoint Solutions. “Our most recent mobile RDC launch was met by incredible enthusiasm by small to mid-size institutions that understand that this technology will be important to current and future accountholders. We are looking forward to working with Access Softek to take this one step further, and launch one of the industry’s first complete mobile banking with check capture applications.”
