Our Financial Services industry is highly regulated and experiences a seemingly constant flow of new rules being proposed, debated, and implemented. This impacts financial institutions both big and small. As part of CheckAlt’s effort to support our client community, we actively engage with our financial institution clients to stay abreast of their compliance pertaining to regulatory changes.
In today's technology-driven world, electronic checks are a necessary solution to the growing demand for speed, security, and simplicity in online payment transactions. It was this demand that paved the way for CheckAlt's eCheck solution.
Smartphone banking has become the norm. In the face of this, behemoth banks, desperate to reduce their expenses in order to keep their products competitive and please shareholders, are closing branch locations by the thousands. This has unlocked an opportunity for smaller financial institutions to buck the trend, grow their physical presence, and better serve their communities.
Many financial institutions (FIs) offer their customers the ability to pay bills via an online portal; this service is called Online Bill Pay. To initiate the transaction, a consumer will typically select or key-in the company they are making the payment to (e.g., a utility, department store, homeowner’s association, etc.), and then key-in other critical pieces of information, including their account number and the dollar amount of the payment.
Klik Technologies, Corp. is known best for providing lockbox treasury management solutions to banks and credit unions that don’t have the wherewithal, resources or expertise to perform such services in-house. But we can also partner with financial institutions that may have internal lockbox capabilities for their existing markets, but may need our services for new markets that are outside of their footprint.
Klik Technologies Corp. offers a host of receivables management products and services to merchants, homeowner associations, utility companies and other organizations – a one-stop shop so clients can obtain all of their receivables in one channel.
The financial services industry is increasingly having to grapple with the new normal: a rapidly changing technology landscape and commercial client behavior.
Today only very large institutions have the resources to meet the demand, especially in a rapid and frequent manner – so how can community banks and credit unions compete in such an evolving competitive landscape?

CheckAlt Acquires Klik to Solidify Position as Leading Provider of Processing Solutions to Financial Institutions and Corporate Customers
CheckAlt, a leader in mobile and Check 21 payment and item processing solutions, today announced that it has acquired Klik Technologies, Corp. (“Klik”), a New York corporation that was a wholly owned subsidiary of MUFG Union Bank, N.A..
It makes sense for banks and credit unions to augment CheckAlt’s ATM processing solution with our ATM reconciliation service to expedite and enhance their own internal processes.
Financial institutions wanting to court Millennials would be well-served to ask them what they actually want from an institution – and how they want to be approached.
Financial institutions really want us to be a partner in disruptive technology. I attend a lot of conferences in the disruptive space, and bankers as well as credit union executives tell me that they are experiencing interloping companies, such as Apple, Amazon and other players, trying to take away customers by offering a host of alternative financial services. They are entering these markets, but are causing great disruption and upheaval in the process.
