In a bid to help credit unions better fight check fraud, mobile enterprise digital transaction management solutions provider eDOC Innovations is leveraging technology from Mitek. eDOC will add Mitek’s Mobile Deposit technology and its advanced risk mitigation features to its eDOC Mobile RDC.
eDOC Innovations COO Mark Fierro credited the growth of the company’s RDC processing business and innovations in check imaging technology for the decision to work with Mitek. Fierro also hinted at near-term dividends of the new partnership. “In the coming months, we will be releasing new features that will help credit unions mitigate risk of check fraud with restrictive endorsement detection and support for Harland Clarke PhotoSafe Checks,” Fierro said.
Serving credit unions for more than 25 years, eDOC Innovations provides a range of solutions to support mobile e-signature processing, digital asset lifecycle management, intelligent and interactive form automation, as well as mobile RDC and electronic statements. The company noted that credit union demand for mobile deposit capabilities in their banking apps had “nearly tripled” over the past year alone.
This would come as no surprise to Michael Diamond, GM and SVP for Payments at Mitek, who said, “Mobile Deposit is the feature that has helped grow mobile banking into the industry it is today, and we continue to drive innovation for both financial institutions and consumers.” Diamond praised eDOC Innovations as a company with a track record of “bringing powerful new technology to credit unions.”
Founded in 1985, Mitek demonstrated its Mobile Verify solution at FinovateFall 2017. Mobile Verify provides worldwide, omnichannel identity verification, making it easy for FIs to onboard foreign customers as readily as local customers. The technology features algorithm-based checks on thousands of global ID documents, and is able to detect security features installed on them. With use cases ranging from account opening and loan origination to payments and card-not-present transactions, Mitek’s Mobile Verify can be integrated into mobile apps, websites, and desktop solutions.
Last month, cryptocurrency trading platform DXE announced that it would use Mobile Verify for automated ID verification. In June, Mitek teamed up with fellow Finovate alum Signicat to build a solution to help European-based financial services improve their onboarding technologies while remaining compliant with new regulations. Also in June, Mitek added identity document verification and biometric facial recognition technology to its platform thanks to an agreement with Experian, also a Finovate alum.
Mitek’s technology is embedded into the apps of more than 6,100 institutions and is used by more than 80 million consumers. Traded on the Nasdaq under the ticker, MITK, Mitek has a market capitalization of $294 million. The company is headquartered in San Diego, California. Mitek’s Sarah Clarke, SVP for Global Product Development, was named to One World Identity’s Top 100 Influencers list in February.
