Embracing the OMNICHANNEL: Banks Break Free From Legacy Systems

By orbograph / February 4, 2016 / 0 Comments

Before “Multi-channel” become Omnichannel, the goal was to provide multiple ways to interact with a bank and your accounts. For quite a while, the ability to check balances and make deposits by any means other than walking into a bank lobby – using a web site, ATM machine, smart phone, etc. – was novelty enough.…

FDIC Quarterly Banking Profile (BQP) Shows Banking Industry Forging Forward

By jgregory / December 3, 2014 / 0 Comments

Does a 7.3% boost in earnings give you any indication of how the banking industry is doing holistically? The increase in earnings was mainly due to a $7.8 billion (4.8%) increase in net operating revenue (the sum of net interest income and total non-interest income), the biggest since the fourth quarter of 2009. The good news is that almost two-thirds of the 6,589 insured institutions reporting (62.9%) had year-over-year growth in quarterly earnings.

The Fundamentals Behind Managed Check Recognition Services

By jgregory / August 27, 2014 / 0 Comments

There was a great article written on the Institute of Financial Operations site called “5 reasons you should not manage OCR software internally”. The concepts and challenges for end-users to fully manage their recognition environment applies to all industries. We’ve seen how even in check processing, banks are underachieving in their check processing environments by 10%, 20% and even 30%, leaving large chunks of automation “on the table” for their employees to manage. The end result is higher labor costs, additional overhead to run the systems and negative client experience due to additional errors.

Mobile RDC and Check Fraud: What to Think?

By jgregory / July 23, 2014 / 0 Comments

We have to remember that Mobile RDC is still a relatively new type of technology. The technology has made waves in supporting financial institution’s customer acquisition strategies. As new services like mobile RDC are implemented, financial institutions run risk models trying to anticipate product profitability, security risk and fraud losses. RemoteDepositeCapture.com recently reported that the vast majority of financial institutions that have adopted mobile RDC technology in the last few years report few, if any, losses from the use of the technology.

The Cloud is Loud for Financial/Healthcare Payments

By jgregory / September 4, 2013 / 0 Comments

A recent Gartner report highlighted “5 Cloud Trends in 2013 and Beyond”. Have you ever heard of how cloud computing aims to create “Webscale” systems, which are large configurations that have this ability to expand and contract as needed? They can be configured quickly, and yet go away quickly too. No longer are “large scale projects” a problem in a cloud hosted environment. A good example in healthcare payments would be a project to convert a large back-log of explanation of benefits forms. In this project, a large virtual cloud could be created with high capacity for a few days…then it goes away.

As Orbotech, Orbograph’s parent company, announces its Q2 2013 earnings report, we thought it might be a good time to point out that pretty much all of the Smartphones on the market go through a quality assurance processing using Orbotech’s latest generation of automated optical inspection and array tester models within the fabrication of mobile devices and large screen televisions. For 30+ years, Orbotech has enabled electronic manufacturers to achieve increased yields and throughput in the production process of electronics using: automated optical inspection (AOI) systems for bare printed circuit boards (PCBs), flat panel displays (FPDs) and automated optical inspection (AOI).

What is the Relationship of Next Generation Check Recognition to the Top Five Retail Banking Trends for 2013?

By jgregory / July 19, 2013 / 0 Comments

According to an article in BAI Banking Strategies by Applied Predictive Technologies, retail banks will focus on managing the multi-channel impact of mobile banking, downsizing branches and selective investing in branch technology. The changing market dynamics due to the variables of new technologies and adoption has complicated the modeling process for the retail sector. This is an opportunity for operations to support the goals of the retail side of the bank by executing on new technologies in check processing automation. By taking a straight-through-processing orientation across the enterprise, the retail bank can focus on client needs, rather than overcoming operational limitations of systems. See how the five top trends can be optimized below with Next Generation Recognition (NGR) technology.

What is the Next Generation in Check Recognition for Teller and RDC?

By jgregory / July 10, 2013 / 0 Comments

With successful implementations in teller image capture and remote deposit capture, we’ve accomplished one of the most difficult phases of the product development cycle… strong penetration. The business case has been proven out, solutions have achieved stability and the purchases of these services have offered a robust solution set of features. However, if we objectively evaluate the ultimate goal, straight-through-processing, we still have a major phase level in the process.
