Cachet Financial Solutions to Deploy Commercial Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) Solution for 1st Century Bank

MINNEAPOLIS, July 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cachet Financial Solutions (OTCQB:CAFN), a leading provider of cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) mobile money technologies to banks, credit unions, and alternative financial services (AFS) providers, will deploy its Select Business™ Merchant Capture platform for 1st Century Bank, based in Los Angeles, California. The bank will begin transitioning select clients from their current business RDC platform to Cachet's Select Business by the end of this summer.

Select Business, a cloud-based software solution, will enable the bank to offer its Mac-based business customers the ability to electronically deposit checks using their office desktop scanner, eliminating a trip to the bank or ATM. The bank's business customers will also be able to better monitor and manage their businesses on the road with the ability to submit multiple check deposits remotely, track deposits made by their employees in the office and in the field, and supervise employees' deposit activities, all via their mobile devices.

"We were looking for a state-of-the-art solution that would help us to expand market share and meet growing customer demand for Mac capabilities," said Jason P. DiNapoli, Chief Executive Officer of 1st Century Bank. "Many of our customers are in the entertainment industry and are Mac-based businesses, so Cachet's omni-channel RDC solution perfectly fits the mobile banking needs and diverse technical requirements of our business customers."

A recent Celent report on the small business RDC opportunity reveals that the majority of top U.S. banks consider a commercial mobile RDC (mRDC) product to be highly important. A single platform that supports both desktop and mobile capture is ideal, according to the report. The report also identifies Cachet as one of only two RDC vendors offering a complete solution including a single mRDC platform and all of the most important mRDC capabilities.

"It's very exciting to see the growing interest and demand for Cachet's Select Business RDC solution," said Jeffrey Mack, president and CEO of Cachet. "Select Business is helping more and more banks, like 1st Century, to improve market position by strengthening relationships with their current business customers, attracting new business customers, and reducing costs by minimizing routine branch transactions."
