Mitek Wins New Patents On Mobile Deposit
SAN DIEGO – Mitek Systems said this morning it has been granted four new patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its popular “Point, Shoot and Deposit” mobile deposit technology.
The new patents broaden the protection on the company’s original patent for mobile deposit granted in August 2010. The technology allows individuals to use the camera on their smart phones to photograph, then deposit checks from anywhere, and is compatible with iPhone, BlackBerry and Google Android devices.
The company, which provides white-label technology to a number of vendors for resale of its mobile deposit solution, is now waiting for patent protection on its Mobile Photo Bill Pay technology.
The Mitek mobile deposit technology is currently used by NCR; BankServ (formerly NetDeposit); RDM Corporation; 3i-Infotech (formerly J&B Software); Fiserv; Jack Henry & Associates; FIS; Wausau Financial Systems; CheckAlt Payment Solutions (formerly Skyline's DirectFED); Secure Payment Systems, Bluepoint Solutions; VSoft and Ensenta.
