MONETT, Mo., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its ProfitStars ® division announced today the addition of Remote Deposit Anywhere™ (RDA) to the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) Preferred Service Provider program. ProfitStars' Remote Deposit Anywhere solution enables community banks to offer individual and small business customers the option to deposit checks from a compatible smartphone, camera-enabled tablet device, or flatbed scanner. Pamela Judson, cash management director/FVP of MidSouth Bank in Lafayette, La., said, "Our community bank has been working with ProfitStars' various Enterprise Payment Solutions since 2007. During this time, they have been wonderful to work with, showing an eagerness to listen and taking a 'hands on' approach ensuring that the solutions bring value to our bank. RDA opens up a whole new world for bankers because our customers can bank with MidSouth from anywhere. Because our bank offers this service, customers who have moved from the local area have chosen to continue to bank with us." Dan Clancy, executive vice president of Services at ICBA, said, "Both individual and business consumers are quickly embracing the convenience offered by mobile banking technology. Remote Deposit Anywhere offers a great convenience to community bank customers by enabling them to make deposits without visiting a physical bank branch while also automating and streamlining the deposit process for the bank." The Remote Deposit Anywhere service offers an intuitive user interface and takes advantage of image processing technologies that ensure accuracy and correct any distortions of the check image. By providing a simple self-serve channel for deposits, community banks can deepen their relationships with their customers by increasing loyalty and entrenchment while also creating cost savings through reduced branch traffic.
