LOS ANGELES (1/6/11)--Remote deposit capture (RDC) service provider CheckAlt Payment Solutions has joined the National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations (NACUSO), expanding its reach within the credit union industry. CheckAlt remote deposit capture offers an in-house Check21 system that allows credit unions to use images for remote deposits and to use teller capture to scan checks at the teller window. CheckAlt RDC’s process allows images to be securely stored locally for on-demand access and uploading to Federal Reserve Banks. Supporting single or multiple scan locations, CheckAlt’s RDC solution facilitates cash flow, lowers upfront and operational costs, simplifies returns processing and check clearing, and integrates with existing credit union core processors. In joining NACUSO, CheckAlt said it will attend and sponsor association events and provide best practices recommendations and data to organization members.
