SAN DIEGO, Sept. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitek (Nasdaq:MITK), the leading innovator in mobile imaging for financial transactions and identity, today announced that a top 5 property and casualty insurer has added Mobile Photo Payments™ with Mitek MiSnap™ to their mobile app.
Adding Mobile Photo Payments to the company's mobile app makes it easy for consumers to pay premiums. They simply view their bill and pay it by taking a picture of their check or credit card using a mobile device camera. Mitek MiSnap makes the process easy with real-time feedback. Similar to scanning a QR code or barcode, when a suitable image is detected, Mitek MiSnap automatically captures the image significantly improving the mobile user experience.
"Paying premiums are the most common interaction a customer has with their insurance company," said James B. DeBello, president & CEO of Mitek. "Adding photo payments is an opportunity to win the mobile moment by offering a simple and fun experience ─ one that is familiar to the more than 30 million Mobile Deposit® users."
According to Javelin Strategy and Research, nearly 12.5 million Americans make $36 billion in mobile bill payments on their mobile devices annually. This volume is expected to rapidly increase as consumers continue to turn to mobile devices to manage their finances, and as awareness of mobile bill-payment capabilities grows.
Mitek's Mobile Photo Payments can be delivered via mobile web, native iOS or Android app on a smartphone or tablet.
Headquartered in San Diego, CA, Mitek (Nasdaq:MITK) is the leading innovator of mobile imaging for financial transactions and identity.
