innovation_award.jpg Olympians aren’t the only ones winning recognition this summer! If you have been following Mitek news lately, you may have noticed that we’ve experienced a steady stream of industry recognition, from being awarded San Diego’s 2012 Software Company of the Year by the San Diego Business Journal to our most recent accolade - being named a finalist in the first annual PYMNTS.com awards for the “Most Innovative” company in the payments space.

We’re particularly proud of this latest achievement, as a PYMNTS.com “Most Innovative” award finalist, because we believe that it highlights Mitek’s ability to not only create innovative solutions but to also anticipate what’s next in advance of the market. Take a look at our video on PYMNTS.com highlighting Mitek's vision and innovation.

Did you know that when Mitek began developing Mobile Deposit technology, smartphone cameras didn’t even have the two megapixels needed to deposit a check? But with the increasing adoption of smartphones, we predicted there would be improved camera capabilities that would enable a new world of mobile banking. With five mobile patents issued to date, Mitek has revolutionized mobile banking by anticipating the needs and mobile habits of consumers and banks.

We are proud to be recognized as a PYMNTS.com Innovation Award finalist, but we aren’t stopping here. We’ve only scratched the surface. Our goals are to:

  • Continue to develop solutions to help users and businesses realize the awesome power and capabilities that the mobile phone camera presents.
  • Drive a whole new model of interaction between financial institutions and their customers.
  • Make everyday tasks like depositing checks, getting insurance quotes and more, into fun and engaging activities that don’t slow you down.

So thank you to PYMNTS.com for creating awards that recognize not only Mitek, but also innovation in this exciting market. Also, thank you to our customers, our employees, our partners and peers that have helped Mitek turn the smartphone into a financial kiosk that delivers unlimited possibilities in the mobile payments space and beyond.
