Mobile imaging company Mitek announced Monday that E*Trade will join Charles Schwab in providing remote check deposit technology to brokerage customers. It will be available on the iPhone next month and on the Android in early 2012.
Mitek notes the benefit for E*Trade clients:
"The move by E*Trade, a New York-based online brokerage, is especially notable because customers currently have to mail a check or use direct deposit or transfer or wire money from an alternative account."
E*Trade is hoping the added convenience will keep clients more engaged with its trading platform.
