VISTA, Calif. (4/8/09)--Bluepoint Solutions has launched a remote deposit capture (RDC) product that enables credit unions to allow members to deposit checks from their home or office using a scanner and a computer with a secure Internet connection. RDC Consumer has a user-friendly interface and a simple sign-on procedure for scanning checks that can be used with credit unions’ existing Web-based home banking systems. By making deposits more convenient, RDC can help attract and retain members, provide a new source of fee income and reduce operating costs by shifting deposits away from the teller line. Southwest Corporate FCU, Plano, Texas, works with Bluepoint Solutions to offer the latest RDC services to member credit unions, according to Brad Ganey, senior vice president, payment services. “Due to its emerging popularity among credit unions and community banks, we anticipate consumer capture technology will become a commodity among all financial institutions, along the same lines of general online banking capabilities,” Ganey said. Bluepoint’s RDC Consumer product is integrated with its transport service, which compiles image files from other RDC products--branch, teller, merchant and ATM -- for immediate clearing. Image files from deposits are maintained in a central depository for easy retrieval by the credit union.
