A new partnership will integrate Mobile Fill from Mitek with the digital sales-platform Transact from Avoka. The goal is to make it easier for financial institutions to acquire new customers, originate loans, and onboard customers.
Calling Mitek a “perfect fit” for its strategy to improve its sales platform, Avoka’s Chief Experience Officer Derek Corcoran said that license capture was a “huge step” in the direction of reducing friction during the account-opening process. Mitek chairman and CEO James B. DeBello added that the solution is being introduced by a “top 10 global bank” for retail account opening. “The pre-built integration will make it easy for this and other financial institutions to quickly deploy a comprehensive account-opening solution that will exceed customers’ expectations for a simple, easy-to-use, mobile onboarding experience,” DeBello said.
Recent headlines for Avoka include providing Beyond Bank with the customer-engagement platform that enabled it to win the Celent Model Bank Award for 2016, and an April partnership with eSignLive that gives financial services companies the ability to completely digitize the customer-acquisition process. The company was named one of the top ten fintech companies worldwide by KPMG in February, and was featured by bobsguide in its “Australian fintech startups to watch” in January. Founded 2002 in Broomfield, Colorado, Avoka demonstrated its Transaction Effort Score (TES) solution this February at FinovateEurope 2016. At FinDEVr 2016 in New York, Avoka discussed its Transact platform in a presentation, “Agile Design for Customer Acquisition.” Philip Copeland is CEO.
Mitek was last on the Finovate stage in May for FinovateSpring 2016 where they demoed Mobile Verify. The company added Stephen Ritter* at its new CTO in March, and announced a partnership with Harland Clarke to improve remote deposit-capture security in January. In addition to Finovate, Mitek demoed its technology at FinDEVr 2015 in the presentation: “Amazing Mobile Capture Experiences, Made Easy by Mitek.”
