LAS VEGAS, Nev. (10/29/10)--At the recent BAI Retail Delivery Show & Expo, Vista, Calif.-based Bluepoint Solutions, a leading innovator in remote-deposit capture (RDC), announced the availability of the first mobile remote-deposit capture solution integrated into an application built for Android-powered smart phones. Bluepoint has configured its’ QwikDeposit ToGo application for Google’s Android operating system in response to the increasing demand and popularity of Android. QwikDeposit ToGo enables consumers to securely deposit checks with a camera-equipped smart phone, providing faster availability of funds and added convenience. Account holders initiate mobile-banking sessions, key in their deposit amount and simply snap photos of both the front and back of the check with their smart phone cameras. The software captures the check, formats the image, automatically corrects any image distortions or skewing and confirms the images meet Check 21 and mobile image-quality standards. All transactions are transmitted with multiple layers of security and, if necessary, can be traced back to registered smart phones, marked with time and location, in order to combat fraud. According to data released by research company, ComScore, Google’s Android operating system has the most momentum in the U.S. smart phone market. The data indicates that Android-based phones currently make up nine percent of the U.S. smart phone market, but have posted the fastest growth of any smart phone platform over the last six months.
