WESTBROOK, Maine (4/6/10)--Synergent Check Processing and Support Services now offers Member Capture, a remote service that allows users to deposit a check anytime and extends the convenience of electronic deposit capture and transmission to home or small office. Member Capture is a browser-based application. Users log on securely and remotely via the Web. A small scanner is needed to capture images and data from deposit documents. Items are then sent to Synergent, and Synergent requests approval from the credit union before forwarding them to the Federal Reserve, the company said in a statement. The service is being piloted by Maine credit unions Atlantic Regional FCU, Brunswick; Maine Savings FCU, Hampden; and Maine State CU, Augusta. Synergent is a subsidiary of the Maine Credit Union League.
