Remote deposit has become more and more popular, not only in the consumer banking world, but in business banking as well. If your business is looking for a simple way to save some time, using Remote Deposit Capture may be the solution you’ve been looking for!

Remote Deposit Capture is a way to efficiently process your deposits from the comfort of your home or office. With a desktop application, you are able to scan checks, either single or multiple, through a desktop scanner, providing a quick and accurate deposit process. In addition, Remote Deposit Capture makes it even easier to keep track of all of your financial transactions with the reporting functions available within the system.

Check Scanners

Many people are already familiar with Mobile Deposit. They receive a check, take out their phone, snap a picture, and it’s deposited! Though similar in concept, Remote Deposit Capture is done through a check scanner device that is designed for this specific purpose. Business owners can purchase a check scanner, connect it to their computer, and process deposits through a desktop application. From there, you can scan all your checks from the comfort of your own home and office.

There are a variety of scanner options, from single item scanners to multiple item scanners that can scan a large volume of checks, up to 50-75 checks per minute. For most small to medium sized businesses, you can scan all the checks for the day within minutes. Once all of your checks are scanned and deposited, you prominently mark the item as “Electronically Presented” or “VOID” and save in your records for 60 days. After the 60 days is up, properly dispose of the item to ensure that it is not represented.

The Business Remote Deposit Capture service is particularly useful for businesses that have a large volume of checks, but many businesses find the convenience of the service the real selling point, regardless of the amount checks!

However, you will want to contact our Business Relationship team to assure compatibility with the system.
