The RDC hub will support all service channels and accept checks
from customers via multiple channels directly to back-office
processing centers. The bank can now process a scanned copy of the
check sent by customers via remote branches, ATMs and mobile
Anheuser-Busch Employees' Credit Union (ABECU) and American Eagle
Credit Union (AECU) also deployed the NCR APTRA Passport to make
check deposit hassle-free for its members. The solution will work
in association with NCR's mobile banking solution. Leveraging the
app, members will be allowed to scan the check via mobile phones
and send it to the credit unions for processing. The credit unions
will then receive the image through the RDC hub.
With APTRA Passport, financial institutions will be able to connect
with their customers from a remote location at any hour of the day.
This will enhance customer/member experience and also reduce
operating costs and staff occupancy. Hence, the solution could be
used as a means for growing business at a lower cost.

segment. Last quarter, NCR generated 7.0% year over year revenue

overall results, as other segments lacked luster.

sectors. But a high debt burden, European exposure and stiff
