SAN DIEGO and COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitek (Nasdaq:MITK) (www.miteksystems.com), the leading innovator of mobile imaging for financial transactions and identity, and MeridianLink, developer of the industry's first multi-channel account opening and loan origination platform, and proven premier credit union technology provider, have inked a partner agreement. As a result of this partnership, MeridianLink will add mobile imaging to their iPad apps to simplify the account opening process. The solution enables institution employees to open and fund new accounts for consumers by taking photos of documents with the iPad camera to prefill personal and financial information into forms replacing manual data entry.
Under the terms of the agreement, MeridianLink will integrate Mitek's entire Mobile Photo Account Opening™ SaaS Suite as a new component of their LoansPQ and XpressAccounts iPad apps. The Mobile Photo Account Opening Suite consists of Mitek MiSnap™, a touch-free client, and a hosted, multi-tenant server that supports the capture and processing of US IDs, checks, debit/credit cards and trailing documents. The combined solution will enable employees to easily engage customers where they are – sporting events, college campus, virtually anywhere. It will also allow them to arm branch employees with iPads enabled with mobile imaging to handle overflow.
"We are looking forward to having our employees help incoming students at The University of Alabama's Freshman Orientation – aptly named Bama Bound, open new accounts," said Mike Goodman, SVP/Technology with Alabama Credit Union. "MeridianLink's new mobile imaging enabled iPad app will help us get students back to class and enjoying campus life in a snap."
"Mobile devices are transforming the way employees and consumers engage with brands and the mobile user experience is the key to success," said Douglas M. Glagola, VP, Business Development, MeridianLink, Inc. "We selected Mitek because of their proven and comprehensive mobile imaging technology."
"We are delighted to be teaming up with MeridianLink whose innovation has transformed multi-channel account opening. We are excited to see them place Mobile Photo Account Opening at the fingertips of banks and credit union across the country," added James B. DeBello, president and CEO.
