ICBA and Goldleaf Financial Solutions Expand Relationship to Offer ICBA Members Remote Deposit Solution
Washington, D.C. (January 22, 2009)—The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) today announced it has expanded its Preferred Service Provider relationship with Goldleaf Financial Services Inc. (NASDAQ:GFSI) to offer ICBA members access to the company’s Remote Deposit Express (RDX) solution.
“In today’s environment, it is critical that community banks find ways to acquire low-cost deposits,” said Dan Clancy, ICBA senior vice president of services. “Most institutions recognize the inherent benefits and value of remote deposit for their customers, as well as the growth potential for business deposits. By partnering with Goldleaf, ICBA members can process their business customers' deposits with greater efficiency and accuracy while expanding their geographic footprint in a cost-effective manner.”
Under the terms of the expanded relationship, ICBA member banks can access Goldleaf’s Remote Deposit Express solution, which is highly regarded for its turn-key implementation, ASP delivery, speed-to-market and high-value and low-risk market entry. In the recently released, “State of Remote Deposit Capture 2008—Sprint Becomes a Marathon” report, Celent, a leading research and consulting firm in the global financial services industry, reported that Goldleaf has more end user deployments than any other remote deposit capture provider in the market today.
Through the Preferred Service Provider relationship with Goldleaf, ICBA members will also have access to the company’s Web design, hosting and security solutions.
