Kofax Mobile Bill Pay, with patented image perfection, enables banks and their customers to easily and effectively capture bills and add payees to a bank's automatic bill pay system. This improves customer service and satisfaction, and more closely ties users to the banks' mobile banking and online solutions, which has proven to significantly reduce the likelihood of a customer switching banks.
Kofax Mobile Check Deposit gives banking customers the ability to deposit checks directly from their smartphones and tablets. Kofax's ability to capture checks with superior image quality enables banks to process more checks faster with greater accuracy. It also delivers more accurate data to the core banking system, resulting in fewer exceptions that would otherwise require manual intervention.
