Mitek, American Cancer Society make collecting check donations a snap
The American Cancer Society has integrated Mitek Mobile Deposit and MiSnap technology into its mobile fundraising app for iOS and Android platforms.
According to a press release, the app is used by tens of thousands of participants in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events.
MiSnap technology allows event participants to use the video-based feature of their mobile device to auto-capture check images across both iOS and Android platforms as donations are collected. This not only eliminates the need for participants to mail the checks, but also makes funds more readily available to the American Cancer Society.
"Since checks are an important source of donations, having a reliable and innovative technology to help streamline the check capture process is critical to our success," Ben Kaplan, American Cancer Society senior director for mobile, said in the release. "Our goal is to create the best user experience for our donors and fundraisers, driving business value to help fund our mission of freeing the world from the pain and suffering of cancer."
"Mitek is pleased to play a role with the American Cancer Society in a way that so directly ties to their important fundraising initiatives," said Michael Diamond, general manager of the Mitek payments division.
