Fulton, Md. — October 24, 2011 — Quality Associates, Inc. (QAI) www.qualityassociatesinc.com, an established provider of services and solutions for large-scale document management, imaging and archiving, today announced that it recently implemented a custom remote check deposit solution for The Fund for Johns Hopkins Medicine (FJHM). The Baltimore, Md.–based organization is the philanthropic arm of Johns Hopkins Medicine, raising money to support treatment, research and educational programs for Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Each year, FJHM processes approximately 45,000 donor checks collected by 15 separate development offices. Before automating, check processing could take 7 to 10 days due to accounting and fundraising paperwork requirements as well as the need to physically transport paper checks between offices and to banking institutions. With the QAI remote deposit solution, data capture, information sharing, check deposit and posting occur electronically within 3 days. Thus, donated monies reach designated program recipients sooner, expediting vital treatment, research and educational objectives.

Scott Swidersky, Executive Director and Partner, Quality Associates Inc., said, “Any organization that processes checks as part of its operations can reap tremendous cost and time savings with a remote check deposit solution. The technology requirements are minimal, and the price entry point is most affordable. The critical factors are integration and customization, and it is here where QAI excels. We possess an unparalleled ability to customize solutions quickly and economically to meet an organization’s unique processes, workflows and back-office systems. Plus, our customerfocused service philosophy means that QAI will be there to assist future enhancements or new technology needs.”
