Scan Checks At Home. Buy Your Own Toaster
Called Remote Deposit Capture, the technology lets people scan checks through their home computers and deposit them electronically has been around for several years, but it has been used mainly for businesses.
Customers want to be able to deposit checks without having to go to banks, said Rod Springhetti, CheckFree's vice president of global strategic marketing, and banks want to be able to offer that.
"I think the ability to remotely capture a check will become part of the standard features and functions of online banking," Springhetti said.
Well, I'd love to do that, as I hate to go to the bank for any reason. It's more convenient to do all your banking from home over the internet, and none of your pens are chained to your desk.
