NCR Corp. and Document Capture Technologies Inc. today announced an agreement that opens the door for NCR to participate in the fast-growing market of remote deposit capture for small businesses. The deal calls for NCR to resell Document Capture's DocketPort scanner to the ATM maker's bank customers and bundle it with NCR's Aptra Passport software. The banks in turn would resell the scanner and software to small businesses. NCR is charging less than $230 for the scanner. The price, however, does not include Aptra software. Banks are free to negotiate a price for the software, a NCR spokesperson tells ATM&Debit News. The Duluth, Ga., -based ATM manufacturer rebranded DocketPort NCR Personal Scanner. DocketPort enables small-business owners to scan the front and back of checks and use the digital images to deposit the checks' funds into their accounts from the office or another remote location. Celent LLC, a Boston-based consulting firm, expects the small-business use of remote deposit capture to increase by more than 400% in the next three years. Some 27 million small businesses with checking accounts exist in the U.S.
