$10 Billion in Mobile Deposits Enabled By Mitek

109 Financial Institutions Now Live with Mobile Deposit, 333 Signed

SAN DIEGO – May 21, 2012  Mitek Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com), a leading mobile imaging software solutions provider, today announced that approximately $10 billion in mobile deposits have been enabled by Mitek’s mobile imaging technology. Mobile Deposit® is Mitek’s mobile remote deposit capture (RDC) solution that enables consumers and businesses to make deposits by snapping photos of checks using camera-enabled smartphones and tablets. The growing adoption of Mitek’s technology is also evident in the transaction volume, which increased more than 143 percent during the six-month period ending December 2011.


“Hitting the $10 billion deposit milestone is an exciting proof point in the value and growth of Mobile Deposit, particularly given that just a few short years ago some were questioning if this technology would take off,” said Mitek Systems’ President and CEO, James DeBello. “We now have agreements signed with 333 financial institutions through our partners, including eight of the top eight U.S. banks ranked by asset size, who are using Mobile Deposit as a cornerstone of their mobile strategy.”


In a recent press release, ING DIRECT reported that for direct banking, remote deposit capture “is the next innovative trend.” Additionally, in a commissioned survey designed to uncover consumers' checking preferences, ING DIRECT found that, “about a third (32 percent) of Americans who have never used remote deposit capture said they would use the technology in the future when it became available.”


Mitek Systems President and CEO Jim DeBello will present, “Mobile Imaging: The Strategic Imperative”, at the NetFinance conference Mobile Channel Focus Day on Monday, May 21, 2012  from 2:20 – 2:40 p.m. NetFinance, a conference for e-commerce and marketing executives in financial services, is being held at the Sheraton Wildhorse Pass, Chandler, Ariz., May 21 –23, 2012.
