Mobile Photo Bill Pay builds on the success of Mitek's Mobile Deposit product
currently used by millions of customers at the nation's leading banks. Mobile
Photo Bill Pay has the potential to spur greater bill pay market adoption and
increase customer retention. CEB TowerGroup found that mobile services are
among those that keep customers loyal to a financial institution and make
customers reluctant to switch banks.

Mitek's Mobile Photo Bill Pay solution allows a bank customer or credit union
member to easily and securely pay a bill with the snap of a smartphone or
tablet camera. After a customer takes a picture of a bill, the technology
automatically extracts relevant information from the paper bill and
auto-populates the fields required to make a mobile payment. The consumer then
schedules the payment and clicks "pay." Mitek's unique and template-free
imaging technology gives consumers a convenient new bill payment option via
their mobile device.
