Rising Demand for Remote Deposit Capture to Boost Market Growth
Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) is a service that enables customers to scan, examine checks and send the digital copies and ACH data to a bank for depositing and processing.
Consumer expectations in terms of banking have shifted dramatically due to Remote Deposit Capture (RDC). According to a June 2020 report by BLM Technologies dba Teksetra, the adoption of this user-friendly financial platform has accelerated since 2009, despite the fact that it was slower during its original authorization in 2004 and 2009.
Further, according to June 2020, a report by Bank Administration Institute and BAI Center, the COVID-19 increases reliance on RDC. It was found that the customers' behavior has changed dramatically at all of the surveyed branch banking and institutions as if they have been severely restricted. As a result, RDC has been brought into the mainstream as a method of dealing with transactional load.
Rising Adoption of Digital Payment Processing to Accelerate Market Growth
Financial institutions and banks are increasingly adopting digital payment systems for payment processing, which is expected to drive the market. In the future, the digital check scanner market is expected to grow at a steady rate. Despite the availability of several online transaction platforms, a major chunk of business currently relies on checks. This element necessitates using a digital check scanner to clear checks swiftly and efficiently while avoiding human error. The check scanner is widely used by financial organizations, banks, and credit unions to increase productivity and profitability in an automated manner. For instance, according to a 2021 report by PWC - a global study of banking, fintech, and payments companies, 89% indicated that the trend toward e-commerce would continue to grow, necessitating major investment in digital payment solutions. Furthermore, they stated (97%) that there will be a shift toward more real-time transactions in the coming years.
Fintech organizations have increased their range of remote and accurate check processing systems due to continued technical improvements in data processing systems and digital system connectivity. These advancements will open the way for new digital banking alternatives to evolve. As a result, it is expected to boost the market.
High Initial Costs of the System to Limit Market Growth
The digital check scanning solutions are cost-effective, but the initial capital cost required to adopt check scanners is high. Further, owing to changing consumer payments preferences and the introduction of online banking methods, the return on investment (ROI) could not be projected for the check scanning solution. Consumers' rapid adoption of digital payment methods restricts retailers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from implementing digital check scanners. The high cost of smart technology-enabled check scanners restricts the adoption of check scanning solutions across small financial institutions and credit unions. However, cost-effective, affordable, and advanced check scanners such as remote deposit scanners are likely to overcome this restraint and create market opportunities for digital check scanning solutions in the coming years.
