Our Technology & Banking Data Warehouse

In a space where manual processes abounded and stale and incomplete banking data sets were the result, we at DepositAccounts set out to take a different approach to gathering banking data. We have spent more than half of a decade building and refining a data collection system that leverages modern technologies to produce the most comprehensive and up-to-date depository banking data set on the Web.

Our Patented Technology

DepositAccounts' proprietary technology is the driver behind our collection system’s unique combination of scale and accuracy. In 2015, the United States Patent Office recognized our novel technology and approach to gathering bank data via an issued patent.
