Mellon Global Cash Management Launches New Remote Check Capture Service
- Customers benefit from time and cost savings -
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 3 / -- Mellon Global Cash Management (GCM) today announced the full rollout of its remote check capture service - a new solution that enables corporate customers to scan and truncate checks they receive from their payors and then electronically transmit the images to Mellon GCM, where they are processed through wholesale lockbox or directly through deposit operations. Users benefit from decreased transportation costs, enhanced customer service and accelerated access to cash.
Mellon GCM has chosen RDM Corporation's innovative Image & Transaction Management System (ITMS) as its check image capture and routing software. This comprehensive check electronification platform is designed to help Mellon GCM's corporate customers reduce check processing costs while increasing efficiencies.
To ensure the product's viability for its customers, Mellon GCM worked with six clients to pilot its remote check capture technology. Those customers cited Mellon's new solution for its dependability and ability to streamline their payments systems, as well as for the quick and responsive support Mellon has consistently delivered.
"Most companies have check payments presented to them that arrive outside of their typical collections process. The introduction of our remote check capture solution is another example of our efforts to leverage Check 21 to bring a more comprehensive receivables solution to the payments marketplace," said Robert W. Stasik, executive vice president and director of Mellon GCM. "We are dedicated to satisfying our customers' desire to process check deposits more efficiently, and expect our transaction volumes to grow steadily as a result. As the cash management industry continues to move toward electronic check presentment, we are also devoting resources to explore future applications of remote capture technology as part of our overall imaging strategy."
The new remote check capture service is among the number of innovative product demonstrations that Mellon GCM will provide during the Association for Financial Professionals Conference in San Antonio between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday, October 10, and Tuesday, October 11 at The Hilton Palacio del Rio, 200 S. Alamo St.
