To use Key Capture, all you need is a check scanner and an Internet-enabled computer. With a more efficient deposit process, your business can expedite deposits, reduce float, and simplify your banking strategy all from the comfort of your office.
E-Bill & Collect
Businesses benefit when it’s easy for customers to pay them. Our integrated suite of Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) services, E-Bill & Collect, was designed to enable businesses to collect recurring bill payments from consumers and businesses through multiple channels (online, telephone, auto-pay).
E-Bill & Collect can be integrated with your website, accounting system and customer service telephone system. This integration includes the ability to brand the system with your logo and to accommodate multiple forms of payment including e-Check (ACH); Credit Card (VI, MC, DI, AX); and Debit Card (VI, MC).
For telephone payments, E-Bill & Collect can include an interactive voice response (IVR) for automated acceptance and a Customer Service Representative (CSR) portal that allows your employees to create payments based on telephone interactions with your customers.

Key Image Cash Letter
In businesses that process a high volume of checks, check processing can contribute meaningfully to profitability by maximizing liquidity and income. By accessing the collected funds sooner, there is more time to earn interest income.
If your business requires a high volume of check processing, Key Image Cash Letter can help you to:
- Meet earlier deposit deadlines (improved funds availability)
- Reduce transportation costs
- Take advantage of extended deposit windows
- Consolidate banking relationships and reduce fees
- Leverage online access to a complete record of deposit activity
- Accommodate domestic consumer and business checks
Key Image Cash Letter was designed for professional remittance processors using high-speed check scanning and transmission equipment. Our system uses your Image Check Letter (ICL) to make a deposit. In this way, your organization can meet earlier deposit deadlines, view deposit activity online and transmit checks from any U.S. bank.
Vaults and branches are a symbol of the trust between a bank and its customers; our cash processing services are designed accordingly to provide you with full confidence in the management of your business’ cash and checks. For retailers and other cash-intensive businesses, we specialize in receiving and processing cash securely and efficiently, providing dual and triple verification procedures, random cash and teller audits, re-verification of large bills, and nightly drop box acceptance.
Our cash vault is highly automated to ensure efficient operation and to eliminate errors. Key also provides automated voice order for coin and currency at selected sites, to support operational efficiency for your cash needs.
Manage Returned Payments
Returned “non-sufficient funds” checks and other forms of payment are an unfortunate fact of life in high volume businesses. Our returned payments solutions can make managing those situations as efficient as possible, and help to reduce repeat occurrences from the same source.
KeyBank relationship managers will work with you to customize your treasury management solution with the right features to efficiently manage returned payments in the context of your business operations. Features include the identification of returned check makers, next-day notification of returned items online via Key Total Treasury® or fax, and multiple check re-presentment formats including image and “Re-presented Check” (RCK). Our systems also consolidate all of your returned items into one account, for ease of management.
