A pair of vendors has announced alliances for offering remote deposit capture services to their business customers.

Jack Henry & Associates Inc. said Wednesday that it would work with Pitney Bowes Inc. to offer imaging services to the Stamford, Conn., company's postal meter customers.

Separately, Goldleaf Financial Solutions Inc. said it had extended a partnership with Epson America Inc. to offer a variety of check image services both within financial institutions and to their business customers.

Jack Henry, a Monett, Mo., vendor, said Pitney Bowes had selected its ProfitStars division to process payments for the Click Deposit Service that Pitney Bowes plans to offer its customers.

Click Deposit, which is to be marketed to Pitney Bowes' large base of postal meter users, is intended to let businesses scan checks automatically, balance the deposits and transmit the images to their banks.

The service will "solve a problem that exists in the market with businesses that are not taking advantage" of remote deposit capture, Rob Goldberg, Pitney Bowes' vice president of global strategy and development, said in a Jack Henry press release.

Click Deposit will offer a range of systems for high-volume businesses, low-volume micro businesses, and individual consumers, Jack Henry said.

Goldleaf, a Norcross, Ga., vendor, said it would offer hardware from Epson's System Device Group to its 2,500 financial institution customers.

The partnership combines various imaging hardware, software and services options that meet needs across all major distributed capture channels, including branch front counter and back counter, consumer, small business and commercial remote deposit capture, Goldleaf said.

"We believe Epson represents a compelling option for financial institutions as a single-source hardware supplier across all financial institution deposit channels and market segments," Todd Shiver, Goldleaf's executive vice president of sales and marketing, said in a press release.

Goldleaf joined Epson's Envision partner program in July. Epson America is a unit of Seiko Epson Corp. of Tokyo, a maker of computer printers and other electronics for home and business use.
