U.S. Bank, fifth-largest bank in the United States and Mitek Systems have entered into a strategic mobile technology partnership to offer Mitek’s Mobile Photo Bill Pay product to U.S. Bank customers.
Mobile Photo Bill Pay will allow customers to set up bill payments by simply snapping a picture of their paper bill using their camera-enabled smartphone or tablet. The new feature eliminates the need to manually enter biller and payment information, and allows the customer to make bill payments directly from their mobile device.
‘Mobile banking and mobile payments continue to be a priority for U.S. Bank as we take advantage of new technology and deliver added convenience to customers via their mobile devices,’ says Niti Badarinath, SVP and head of mobile banking at U.S. Bank. ‘U.S. Bank has been a leader in mobile banking and mobile payments since we first piloted a contactless payment solution in 2008, and were one of the first banks to offer a mobile check deposit feature in 2010. Our investment in mobile innovation will remain strong as we enter into 2013.’
