Deposit Account Opening

Consumers want to connect with their financial institutions as easily as they check the weather or get directions to a restaurant. Our Deposit Account Opening Module is a DecisionLender 4 add-on that simplifies and streamlines the account opening experience for both branch employees and online/mobile consumers. This module enables consumers to “save” their progress, ensuring applications can be initiated, stopped, saved and restarted from any location and any device, either in the branch or online. The Deposit Account Opening Module allows consumers the convenience of 24/7 account-opening capabilities through a custom-designed workflow that you control; and by leveraging the cross-sell module, you can offer appropriate new loan products whenever someone opens a new account.

How it works: Online/Mobile

  • The program opens to present a menu of choices based on your specified products, including:
    • checking accounts
    • certificates of deposit
    • holiday savings
    • money markets
    • retirement accounts
    • savings accounts



  • Ease-of-use continues with the single sign-on, removing the need for consumers to rekey personal information as the application is automatically populated with consumer information stored in your core system.
  • Once the initial form is completed, the Account Opening Module does the following:
    • verifies the user’s identity
    • ask the user to name account beneficiaries (when required)
    • presents disclosures or authorization documents for the user to approve or reject
    • runs through the approval process
  • Approval responses are sent back to the user immediately.
  • Required stipulations can be sent through the user’s mobile device camera or they can upload images, PDFs and other documents from a tablet, desktop or laptop.
  • eSignatures are collected in a protected e-signing room, then filed directly into your core system.

How it works: Branch

  • Branch employees can use their desktop, laptop or tablet to open a new account for consumers, choosing from a menu of accounts based on your specified products, including:
    • checking accounts
    • certificates of deposit
    • holiday savings
    • money markets
    • retirement accounts
    • savings accounts
  • Applications for existing account holders auto-populate with information from the core.
  • For new clients, a branch employee can use scanners or tablets to take a picture of the consumer’s driver’s license and prepopulate the application.
  • Utilize 3rd party data sources to prepopulate applications.
