The $533 million, 62,000-member Rivermark Community Credit Union said it is the first credit union in Oregon to offer remote deposit checking.
The Beaverton credit union said more than 1,300 members have downloaded the free apps for Apple and Android devices since it was launched on March 1. PC service is available through the credit union’s online banking site.
"It's still early, but so far over 60% of deposits have been made using an Apple device, 30% using an Android device and the rest using a PC-based desktop scanner," said Aaron Bledy, remote delivery manager at Rivermark Community CU.
"Our members are no longer bound by the proximity of branch locations, branch hours or the availability of deposit taking ATMs," he said.
Rivermark is using the DeposZip service from Vertifi Software LLC of Burlington, Mass. The EasCorp subsidiary said it now has RDC in place at 78 credit unions.
