LAS VEGAS, Nov. 13, 2007 – Digital Check Corp, a leading provider of electronic check scanners for the distributed check capture industry, announced that Synovus Financial Corp (NYSE: SNV), a Columbus, Georgia-based financial services company, has renewed its commitment to deploy Digital Check check scanners to customers as a part of their remote deposit capture service. Synovus exclusively distributes Digital Check’s TellerScan® devices through the bank’s corporate treasury group. The companies have partnered since 2005 and recently reached the milestone of 2,000 units deployed.
Synovus provides corporate remote deposit capture services to customers through 37 banks and other Synovus offices in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee. Synovus’ remote deposit capture service consists of software from Metavante Corporation, a leading provider of banking and payments technology, and Digital Check TellerScan electronic check scanners, with fulfillment capabilities from Benchmark Technology Group. Digital Check’s agreement with Synovus includes a scalability program that enables Synovus customers to upgrade to newer or larger capacity models of Digital Check’s TellerScan check scanners through a trade-in allowance.
“We are excited about our expanded relationship with Synovus and believe it will provide even greater benefit to Synovus’ customers,” said John Gainer, executive vice president of Digital Check. “We continue to work with our partners to develop and implement enhancements to the way the scanner and remote deposit capture applications interact that benefit the customer.
