Significant developments within the quarter included the signing of a license agreement with The Bancorp Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bancorp Inc., to expand its remote deposit gathering capabilities, by enabling customers to deposit personal and business checks via their smartphone cameras using Mitek’s Mobile Deposit® application. The company also signed an OEM agreement with NetDeposit, a leading provider of distributed check capture solutions, to provide mobile deposit capabilities to its financial institution and merchant clients, by integrating Mitek’s Mobile Deposit® application into NetDeposit’s NetCapture suite of remote deposit capture solutions.
