Smarter RDC: Advanced Remote Deposit Capture for Your Business

Easily and affordably deployed, implemented and configured remote deposit capture solutions to help you receive, process, post and apply all captured check and remittance items.

ETran's enhanced desktop and mobile remote deposit capture modules help to streamline the RDC process by being able to electronically scan and upload check images to the ETran user interface for processing and digital deposit—all with the added benefit and convenience of automated cash application into your back-office system(s).

ETran Mobile is seamlessly integrated with the Advanced Remote Deposit Capture module, helping you to unlock the power of mobile check acceptance and deposit services. Adding the advantages of mobile check processing delivers team members with the strategic goal of simplifying all receivables on a single platform. 

ETran’s Mobile RDC (mRDC) capabilities enable your business to securely accept check payments in the field either via a fully-hosted, stand-alone app (iOS and Android), or by integrating our mobile SDKs into your own Android or iOS mobile application on your smartphones.

Utilize the capabilities of truly integrated remote deposit capture technology by managing all desktop and mobile checks and remittance documents from a single, SaaS interface. ETran's remote deposit capture products use magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) matching and optical character recognition (OCR) technology to automatically read and match MICR line, account number, and dollar amount data on checks to customer account information.

By automatically matching incoming checks and remittance documents scanned into the ETran software to customer accounts, manual, error-prone A/R controls are accelerated, and new workflow automations allow for time to be spent on higher value functions in your internal operations.

ETran's RDC service utilizes Intelligent Invoice Matching and Electronic Invoice Presentment/Payment (EIPP) to match checks to outstanding customer invoices for convenient, hassle-free clearing and processing of original checks and associated remittance images.

By bringing in a file feed of all your outstanding invoices and customer information, ETran is able to automatically match incoming physical checks to the dollar amount associated with invoices, as well as customer account information, based upon workflows and rules set up during implementation, reducing the time your A/R team spends on matching data. 

ETran is fully agnostic and works with your existing desktop scanner, banking and financial institutions, and back-end system(s). You are able to easily route transactions through any check scanning hardware, transmit the payments to one or multiple banking settlement accounts for deposit, and post the remittance detail to any back-end accounting system in either batch or real-time for straight through processing.

ETran accelerates the clearing of funds that the bank receives via same business day electronic deposits (with no deposit thresholds or retention period) and reduces the operational costs and processing administration by automating traditionally manual, complex reporting tasks. You can determine the cutoff time for deposit of the check 21 file at your bank(s), as long as it agrees with your bank's terms. All check payments will be lump sum deposited as the check 21 file, and you will have funds availability within one business day. ETran is also capable of receiving returned items, having them cleared electronically, and sending the checks back to the bank for deposit.

ETran allows you to easily support and deploy centralized or distributed check processing environments via a single, cloud-based user-interface to accelerate the RDC process across all customers. 

ETran's Advanced Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) services are completely configurable at the user-level allowing for workflow automation based on business rules defined by you to streamline daily operations. You also have the ability to configure customer data by up to 20 configurable elements for automated posting processes, as well as the ability to configure reports based on your A/R needs including: payment date, deposits, running transaction log, and other general client and transactional information.

ETran's desktop and mobile remote deposit capture services continue our strategic mission of delivering truly integrated receivables solutions that seamlessly integrate with any back-end system in either batch or real-time to streamline and automate the applying process.

By building and keeping trusted partnerships with your technology/service provider—that provides automated posting services—you are able to speed your business' collection rates and A/R requirements, all from a single, cloud-based RDC system.

Reduce risk and enable enhanced security and privacy. With ETran's cloud-based architecture, you get the unique benefits of multiple layers of compliance beyond just the basic requirements.

Advanced Remote Deposit Capture Powering In-House & Outsourced Lockbox

FTNI's ETran Advanced Remote Deposit Capture solution is a fully-integrated, RDC system that can be used as the engine of internal lockbox operations. For example, ETran is currently used to drive lockbox operations at firms managing as little as a few thousand checks/remittance documents per month to powering lockbox operations taking nearly 1 million checks and associated original items monthly.

ETran can also be used to bridge the gap between your outsourced lockbox service provider's (bank's) feed and your systems. Along with the benefits of outsourcing your lockbox operations, there can also be some common 'headaches'. One of the most common is having to deal with receiving limited remittance data that many times still has to be manually reviewed, entered and uploaded into your accounting systems. Discover ETran by FTNI to streamline your lockbox and check clearing operations.

Frequently Asked Questions: Remote Deposit Capture

Unlike a dashboard that only displays transactions from disparate receivables systems, a truly integrated receivables platform accepts, processes and posts any payment type—check, ACH transactions, credit card, debit card, cash—via any payment channel—lockbox (mail), called-in, in-person, online, mobile—on a single, secure (and compliant), SaaS platform. 

By utilizing RDC applications and other integrated receivables modules, you are able to reduce the amount of time spent on manual data entry duties and allow your internal team to minimize their efforts processing physical checks.

A truly integrated mobile check capture solution goes beyond the traditional mobile banking apps by delivering the ability to automate your receivables processes from acceptance to posting. By implementing mobile remote deposit capture technology into your receivables mix, you will discover a host of benefits. 

As adoption grows across your business and users, you will be able to deliver a better, quicker and more secure paying experience for your customers.

FTNI's integrated receivables platform, ETran, is a cloud-based, desktop software solution that streamlines A/R operations by allowing internal teams to have complete oversight of all incoming money data to review, process and post into your back-office system(s).
