Mitek Systems, the recognition tools and software developer, which has recently had some success in the market for capturing check images with mobile phones, has branched out into document capture. Jim DiBello, Mitek’s CEO, previewed this expansion to us three years ago [see story on page 7].
According to the press release, “Created by Mitek and hosted at Amazon’s multi-tenant, enterprise-class EC2 platform, the Mitek Mobile Imaging Cloud (MIC) provides mobile application developers, systems integrators and businesses with a fast, cost-effective way to create smartphone and tablet apps that use the camera as an input method for a wide variety of tasks.”
Sounds like an interesting opportunity. We’ll see what sort of apps are developed on MIC.
