GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — After serving as pilots for Processing Alliance’s CU*Check 21 electronic deposit automation solution, three Michigan CUs–Frankenmuth Credit Union, Kent County Credit Union and Alpena Community Credit Union–are now scanning, transmitting and retrieving live check images online.
