Mobile Photo Bill Pay is a valuable asset to financial institutions for increasing the number of customers using bill payment. The benefits to the bank of having active bill pay customers is significantly higher customer retention, increases in Demand Deposit Account (DDA) account balances and the ability to generate revenue with expedited payment fees.Mobile Photo Bill Pay builds on the success of Mitek's Mobile Deposit® by enabling a bank customer or credit union member to easily and securely pay a bill with the snap of a mobile device camera. After a customer takes a picture of a bill, Mitek's patented mobile imaging technology automatically extracts relevant information from the paper bill and auto-populates the fields required to make a mobile payment. This revolutionary new way to pay bills eliminates the need for manual data entry, a checkbook or even a computer. To date, U.S. Bank, City Bank Texas, and First Financial Bank of Abilene, Texas, have launched Mobile Photo Bill Pay to their customers. Like the early movers with Mobile Deposit, the first financial institutions to offer a better bill pay experience will gain a competitive advantage because customers will be willing to switch banks to get this new convenience. A recent Javelin Strategy & Research survey of U.S. mobile phone owners underscores the demand for this innovative bill payment solution. The February 2013 report, Going beyond Mobile Remote Deposit Capture to Bridge the Consumer Transaction Gap , revealed that 42 percent of mobile bankers expressed a desire to use mobile photo bill pay. Mobile Photo Bill Pay is built on Mitek's patented enterprise-class mobile imaging platform and process for converting personal document images taken with a mobile device into useful data that drives high-value business applications. Mobile Photo Bill Pay is part of Mitek's suite of banking solutions which includes Mobile Deposit®, Mobile Photo Balance Transfer®, Mobile Photo Enrollment™, Mobile Photo Payment™ and Mobile Photo Capture™.
