BROOKFIELD, Wis. (8/18/08)--Source Capture Optimization can help financial institutions dealing with disparate remote deposit capture solutions or changing check volume demands, Fiserv announced Thursday. Source Capture Optimization can “enhance functionality of all sources of deposit gathering. This includes branch, teller, ATM, merchant, regional and consumer capture solutions,” the company said in a release. The solution combines CheckFree--a web-based bill payment application--and existing Fiserv image capture solutions. “[Financial institutions] today are taking deposits from a multitude of sources,” said Christine Barry, Aite Group researcher. “Providing a universal platform would allow those sources to integrate seamlessly.” Fiserv provides information technology services to financial institutions, including credit unions.
