What is Remote Deposit Capture
Remote Deposit Capture originally got its start in the early 2000s. With a need for an easier way to deposit checks other than by mail, Remote Deposit Capture was conceived. To deposit a check remotely, you need a check scanner, banking software that connects your check scanner to the bank, and a check. Banking and small businesses have never been more connected with programs like RDC. Now if you are depositing a check once every six months, RDC might not be a great idea for you. However, if you are a small business and you encounter dozens to hundreds of checks, RDC would be perfect for you. With simple steps and added benefits to your customers, RDC programs continue to grow in popularity with banks and credit unions.
Why is RDC Popular
Enhancing the customer experience and delivering the best possible product are goals that both banking and retail share. Online banking and other fintech services are on the rise in 2021 for individual banking, but RDC seems to be a dominant force in the banking services world for small business banking. RDC popularity is due to a few key factors that align with 2021 customer expectations. User-friendly is a priority in 2021 customers and RDC is a simple efficient way that is easy to navigate. However, when your customers expect helpful and quick support, banks and credit unions need to be prepared with a solution that doesn't overwhelm their resources. Dedicated IT support like Benchmark's Help Desk, can make a huge impact on customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. Another aspect that continues to keep RDC popular in 2021 is how convenient it is. Without having to leave their home or office, customers can take more control of the check deposit process. No longer do customers have to work around the financial institution and instead can prioritize their time based on their needs. Giving customers more control of their resources is what keeps RDC relevant not only in 2021 but well into the future. Despite the rise of RDC, there are many moving parts of the RDC process. Organizing these elements of RDC programs for banks and credit unions poses a real challenge. Without reliable resources and partners, many RDC programs are not maximizing success and could be suffering.
