Rivermark Community Credit Union Launches Mobile Deposit
Contact: David Noble, Vice President of Marketing
Beaverton, Ore. – Rivermark Community Credit Union is the first Oregon credit union to offer Mobile Deposit, a new service that allows members to securely deposit paper checks using their iPhone, iPad2, iPod Touch or Android™ mobile device. Since the launch on Thursday, March 1, over 1,300 members have downloaded the free app and deposited over 700 items. “It’s still early, but so far over 60% of deposits have been made using an Apple® device, 30% using an Android™ device and the rest using a PC-based desktop scanner,” said Aaron Bledy, Rivermark’s Remote Delivery Manager.
Making deposits using a mobile phone provides unprecedented access and convenience for members. “Our members are no longer bound by the proximity of branch locations, branch hours or the availability of deposit taking ATMs,” continued Bledy.
One Rivermark member described her experience this way: “Just downloaded the mobile deposit app & used it for the first time today. This is going to simply REVOLUTIONIZE my banking,” said Debra in Milwaukie.
To get started, members simply tap the Mobile Deposit button in Mobile Banking and download the free DeposZip Mobile app. For members who do not have a web-enabled phone, Rivermark offers a desktop version that is available within Online Banking. There is no fee for using Rivermark’s Mobile Deposit or its PC-based Online Deposit service.
Rivermark partnered with Vertifi Software LLC, to offer the DeposZip product to members . Since 2008, Vertifi’s flagship program has processed over $1.5 billion in deposits for seventy-eight credit unions across the country.
Rivermark Community Credit Union serves more than 85,000 members and has over $759 million in assets. Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in 11 Oregon counties. For more information on Rivermark, visit their website at rivermarkcu.org.
