Getting Your Money to the Bank
The number one reason that a customer chooses to bank with a particular institution is convenience. This is exactly why so many businesses find themselves with a bank that is located right next to them but completely non-responsive to their particular needs. Well, the world has changed and First Bank of the Palm Beaches is often more convenient for your business than even that bank that located right outside your door.
If the primary reason that you physically go to the bank is to deposit checks that your customers give to you then Remote Deposit might be the perfect way for your business to do its banking. Remote Deposit is a check scanner that sits in your office and allows you to make your bank deposit at your desk in about the time it takes to pour yourself a cup of coffee. All you need is a computer, an internet connection and some checks to deposit and you can do your banking inside of your office and eliminate trips for you and for your staff to the bank. With Remote Deposit you will:
- Increase productivity by reducing or eliminating trips to the bank,
- Improve cash flow by depositing checks immediately instead of saving them up for a few days to save trips to the bank,
- Gain access to improved reporting to better understand your payments from your customers.
Remote Deposit is perfect for attorneys, doctors, cpas, electricians, plumbers, window companies, mechanics, day care centers, etc. In other words if a business is not cash intensive, Remote Deposit might be a great fit.
First Courier Express

Our courier travels much of Palm Beach County and might be driving directly by your location already.
Electronic Banking, ACH and Direct Deposit
