    WATERLOO, ON, July 14 /CNW/ - RDM Corporation (TSX: RC), a leading
developer of specialized software and hardware products for electronic payment
processing, announced today that it has teamed with Electronic Check Services
(ECS) to resell RDM's electronic check conversion software and hardware
products. ECS will now be able to provide remote deposit capture capabilities
to its existing and potential customers enabling them to electronically
deposit checks. The RDM software is bank agnostic so merchants will not be
required to change their existing banking relationships.
    "We are very pleased to be working with ECS to sell our Remote Deposit
Capture (RDC) products through the ISO sales channel," said Douglas Newman,
President and Chief Executive Officer of RDM Corporation. "ECS is a rapidly
growing firm and we look forward to assisting them in servicing their existing
customers as well as in securing new business with our industry leading
products. We believe our new Simply Deposit(TM) product that was designed
specifically for small business will be especially well received." Newman
further stated, "RDM is uniquely positioned to be able to provide an end to
end check electronification platform as we can provide both the hardware and
software required."
    Derron Winfrey, President ECS said, "We are working closely with RDM to
add a full service element for our customers. Our programming teams are
completing an interface allowing us to showcase our ACH abilities as well as
interfacing with our proprietary National Database and three stage collections
process. Utilizing RDM's ability to capture and process items from the back
office combined with ECS's abilities in database customization and check
recovery will give our merchants a complete check conversion system. Offering
Remote Deposit Capture will not only allow them to electronically deposit
checks without needing to go to the bank branch to make a deposit, but provide
them with complete recovery management for items that do not clear upon the
initial presentment. This will save them time and money and give them faster
availability of funds from those deposits."
