See what one of our customers has to say about BMO DepositEdge:

"The process of manually depositing cheques was costly, tedious, and not an efficient use of our resources…with BMO DepositEdge, our employees process cheques on their own schedules – not the banks' – in a fraction of the time it used to take."

"This has not only generated significant savings for our business, but has allowed our employees to dedicate their time to our number one priority, serving customers." (Deb Messinger, Controller at VitaPlus)

Whether your business has a number of locations in Canada and the US, or a single office – whether you process just a few cheques a month or a few thousand - our team of experienced specialists will help you:

  1. Select the right scanner model - (low, medium or high cheque volume)
