ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Remote Deposit Capture is a winning proposition for financial institutions large and small. Among the close to 200 banks and credit unions participating in the 4th Annual mRDC Industry Study, just completed by RemoteDepositCapture.com, 95% believe the benefits of mRDC "outweigh" the costs and risks, while 63% said the benefits "far outweigh" costs and risks.
"Mobile deposit is a truly a homerun for banks and credit unions," said John Leekley, Founder and CEO of RemoteDepositCapture.com. "It drives real value for offering institutions, and despite some concerns expressed early on, broad adoption has not triggered massive losses from duplicate deposits. In fact, nearly 3 out of 4 financial institutions participating in the study this year reported no losses attributable to mobile deposit." The share of FIs reporting losses from mRDC has remained relatively unchanged for the last 3 years, Leekley added.
Further evidencing this trend, the latest mRDC Industry Study reveals the Duplicate Loss Rate (DLR), the only true measure of mRDC fraud. An analysis of over 120 million deposited items showed the Duplicate Loss Rate was much less than many in the industry expected. The actual DLR is revealed in the report. "This is great news for the industry," Leekley said. "It indicates that financial institutions are leveraging available risk management tools and strategies to minimize what fraudsters see as a potential window of opportunity created by mobile deposit."
The mRDC Industry Study, conducted by RemoteDepositCapture.com, reveals unparalleled insights into how banks and credit unions are deploying mobile RDC across customer segments. The study draws from an online survey completed by 195 financial institutions during Q2 and Q3 2017.
"Insights gleaned from the study will help financial institutions benchmark their mobile deposit offerings against those of their peers, and to evolve strategies for pricing, managing risks and expanding adoption," said Leekley.
