Lake Michigan Credit Union Enters New Digital Partnership with VerifyValid

Lake Michigan Credit Union (LMCU), a leading Michigan credit union, and the largest financial institution headquartered in West Michigan, today announced that it is partnering with VerifyValid™, the leading provider of electronically-delivered check payments (eChecks), to allow its members to quickly and easily receive, manage and deposit VerifyValid eChecks directly into their accounts.

eChecks combine the speed and convenience of electronic payments with the safety, familiarity, and information of paper checks, and can be sent from any computer, tablet or iOS phone. eChecks are currently used by individuals and businesses, such as Grand Valley State University, one of West Michigan’s largest employers, to pay many of its vendors. Additionally, the rate of eCheck usage is increasing nationally through partnerships between VerifyValid and Deluxe Corporation.

With the number of eChecks in circulation increasing every month, under the new partnership, LMCU members with a VerifyValid eLockbox will have the ability to safely and securely deposit eChecks into their LMCU account.

“EChecks are emerging as a secure payment method of choice for business and individuals, and Lake Michigan Credit Union is committed to offering maximum in convenience and efficiency through the latest online and mobile banking technologies to its members,” said Sandra Jelinski, president and CEO of LMCU. “By working with VerifyValid, LMCU has ensured our members have access to all the convenience, cost savings and security that eChecks provide.”

Financial institutions can offer the VerifyValid eLockbox technology using no new equipment, no software installation, and requires no maintenance or service calls. LMCU can add it to a member’s account in minutes.

“VerifyValid eChecks make life easier for both payors and recipients. They are also safer because they are registered with our fraud prevention service and because they move through financial institutions rather than around them,” said Paul Doyle, founder and CEO of VerifyValid. “Lake Michigan Credit Union’s support of eChecks demonstrates its commitment to improving the lives and businesses of its members.”

VerifyValid helps businesses and consumers accept check payments electronically. This means they get paid quickly and economically while helping fight the risk and costs of other electronic payment types such as credit and debit cards. Every VerifyValid eCheck can be instantly verified using VerifyValid’s free online service. This allows payees and financial institutions alike to confirm that the check is authentic and helps prevent fraud due to forgery or alteration. VerifyValid eChecks are the only checks that come with a pedigree that can be proven at the time of deposit at the financial institution.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
