Conestoga Bank, a full-service community bank with branches throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, announced that it now offers its customers the ability to deposit checks remotely from their smartphones. The service is available to consumers and small businesses.
Conestoga Anywhere Deposit provides all the convenience of depositing checks from anywhere with the safety and security of in-branch or ATM deposits. Mobile deposit will be integrated closely with Conestoga’s other mobile banking solutions rolling out later this year.
“We are constantly thinking about how technology can make us more convenient for our customers," said Richard Elko, president and chief executive officer of Conestoga Bank. “This service combined with our soon-to-be released mobile banking services, internet banking, 32,000 surcharge-free ATMs, and strategically-located branches make us one of the most convenient community banks in the country.”
After registering online, Conestoga Bank customers can photograph a check and submit it via the free app downloaded to their mobile device. For security purposes, no images or data are stored on the customer’s phone, there is a complete audit trail for every deposit, and all images are sent using 128-bit encryption. Currently, iPhone and BlackBerry devices are supported, with Android-based devices being added shortly.
“With this app, we’re pleased to put the depositing of checks literally in the hands of our customers. Our customers are some of the first community bank customers in the nation to enjoy this level of convenience in depositing checks," explained Lori Adamski, Conestoga's executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Beginning with this service and continuing with other exciting mobile banking options in the works for 2011, we continue to redefine convenience in banking.”
Mobile check deposit is an ideal solution for both individuals and small businesses and is especially convenient for banking customers that travel frequently or do not live or work near a branch. Small businesses with field employees that take checks from customers can now allow those employees to instantly deposit those customer payments without giving them open access to the account.
Said Ms. Adamski, “In addition to saving time, Conestoga’s Deposit Anywhere app will help to improve our customers’ cash flow.”
