VACU Says 1,000 Checks Deposited by Smartphone in July
The $2.3 billion Virginia Credit Union said more than 1,000 of its 219,700 members made a deposit using their smartphones in July.
That’s the most in a month since the Richmond, Va., credit union began offering mobile remote deposit capture in April, the credit union said.
The RDC service supports iPhones and Android devices and VACU is the first local credit union or community bank in Virginia’s capital city to offer it, the credit union said.
“VACU moved quickly to offer this service because of the rapid adoption of mobile banking by its members,” said Frank Macrina, vice president for e-Services. He said VACU has been an early adopter of electronic services and has been offering online banking and bill pay since 1997.
