WesPay Lunchtime Webinar: Image Quality Standards

August 17 

Wespay.org

Many banks and credit unions have been offering or plan to offer remote deposit capture to businesses and to consumers. Questions remain regarding the liabilities related to the presentment of images to the Paying Bank, especially now that the original paper check may be destroyed. If image quality is not acceptable and a dispute arises over the item, the Depositary Bank may be liable for damages, but how does the industry define what is an acceptable image? And, how does the Depositary Bank measure the images received against the standard? William Bley, AAP/NCP will lead the discussion to answer these two important questions during the “Image Quality Standards and Measurements” Lunchtime Tip Teleseminar. If your bank or credit union is offering or plans to offer remote deposit, whether through a scanner or mobile phone, attend this session to learn more.
