Save time and get paid quicker

With nothing more than a scanner, computer, and an internet connection, you can deposit checks directly from your office, store, or other business location. Not on bank hours? No problem. You can make deposits 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you’ll save time by having the ability to scan multiple checks at once. Images are securely sent to the bank for processing.
