Groundbreaking check deposit process approves 99% of checks for instant availability with a loss guarantee


February 27, 2023 – FORT WORTH, Texas – VALID Systems, a leader in account-based decisioning and real time machine learning models, announced the launch of InteliFUNDS, a new service that enables banks to transform their customers’ experience by making up to 99% of check deposits instantly available with no risk to the institution. Checks approved for instant availability that later return and cause a loss for the bank are covered by VALID Systems. By eliminating up to 95% of check deposit losses and generating tremendous customer value, InteliFUNDS drives multiple efficiencies throughout the deposit process.

“Check fraud had been on the rise through 2018 and 2019 until the pandemic offered a reprieve from the onslaught, but that was only temporary,” said VALID Systems Chief Strategy Officer Rodney Drake. “As government stimulus funds dried up, check fraud has come roaring back. By guaranteeing against losses caused by returned checks, InteliFUNDS enables banks to deliver on customer expectations of instant access to their check funds while providing the institution with powerful safeguards.”
