Bluepoint Solutions Inc. has debuted what it says is the first remote deposit capture solution for smartphones using Google's Android platform.
Bluepoint is using Access Softek Inc.'s Android mobile banking application to provide the capability to its QwikDeposit ToGo solution, the companies said.
The integrated solution was introduced at the BAI Retail Delivery show in Las Vegas this week.
The software allows checks to be deposited by taking pictures of both sides of the check, which it then captures, formats, corrects to meet Check 21 and image-quality standards, and then securely transmits, said Andrew Tilbury, Bluepoint's marketing director.
Tilbury said the ability to offer RDC through Android phones will become increasingly important as the platform surges in popularity.
Recent ComScore research showed the Android operating system holding 9% of the U.S. smart phone market but growing the fastest in the past six months, the companies said.
Bluepoint Solutions is based in Vista, Calif., and provides item processing, enterprise content and receipt management to more than 600 financial institutions, primarily credit unions, the company said.
