SAN DIEGO, CA, October 12, 2015 – Mitek (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com), a leading innovator of mobile capture and identity solutions, today announced that Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, has released an IT Market Clock report on Mobile Imaging for Banks, and the benefits associated with transitioning many back-office banking operations to a mobile self-service environment using their customer’s mobile devices. The report is dated August 31, 2015 and authored by research director Stessa B. Cohen.
The report examines Mobile Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) for retail and commercial markets as well as a broad range of additional mobile imaging use cases, including new account opening and Know Your Customer (KYC) authentication. All of the cited use cases involve capturing paper-based data with the camera of a smartphone or tablet to bring that data into an electronic transactional workflow in order to reduce costs associated with these customer interactions.
“This is Gartner’s first IT Market Clock report on mobile imaging and highlights the enormous value mobile imaging can bring to banks by enabling them to support many back-office workflows and business processes using their own customer’s mobile devices,” said James B. DeBello, president and CEO of Mitek. “The quick adoption of mobile check deposit by these same retail banking customers highlights the readiness of customers to use their mobile devices in more of a self-service manner. Beyond improving operational efficiencies and reducing costs, mobile imaging facilitates the digital transformation of existing back-end processes and transactions and underscores our excitement about the growing market opportunity for our new solutions.”
