Mitek Systems Empowers the Underbanked with New Prepaid Solution


In the last demo before lunch, Mitek Systems discussed how its mobile imaging technology can be used to create alternative financial services for the growing population of underbanked Americans.
It demonstrated a mobile alternative to check-cashing stores that uses its mobile deposit technology, the same technology that powers mobile deposit solutions for the top 8 retail banks and more than 250 other financial institutions. 
This new capability will enable the underbanked population to take photos of the front and back of checks and load the funds directly onto a prepaid card. This innovative approach can free unbanked individuals from the confines and sometimes predatory practices of check-cashing facilities.
