What is Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)?

Remote Deposit Capture, in its most simple terms, is a service which allows a user to scan checks and transmit the scanned images and / or ACH-data to a bank for posting and clearing. The basic requirements for an RDC service currently include a PC, an Internet connection, a check scanner and a service provider such as your current bank. Checks you receive at your corporate or bank location can be scanned to create a digital deposit. This digital deposit is then transmitted (usually over an encrypted Internet connection) to your RDC bank or service provider who then accepts the deposit, posts the deposit to your account and assigns availability based upon your availability schedule.

Advantages of using Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)
  • You do not have to go to the Bank. Scanned checks are converted to ACH images.
  • Accelerated Clearing of deposits because of the Check 21 legislation.
  • Improved Availability of funds because you can make deposits earlier in the day.
  • Reduced Returned Item risk because the faster you get a receipt deposited the higher the probability that the funds are available.
  • Reduced Processing Costs because the deposit process is less prone to errors and is automated.
  • Consolidation of banking relationships because you may no longer be tied to a local bank, you can consolidate all your properties to use your preferred bank.
How many types of RDC are there?

Remote Deposit Capture often has different names depending upon how the service is applied within a particular environment.
