We’re starting a new blog series where we showcase the achievements of Assemble members. Creatively titled “Member Roundup”, we’ll be posting news and happenings from members of our Chicago and Minneapolis shared office spaces on a regular basis.
Our Chicago West Loop member Earth Class Mail launched their new CheckStream service last week. CheckStream offers simple, secure check deposits for businesses. CheckStream enables millions of businesses that receive checks to easily make deposits with just a click, to any bank, and seamlessly record payments to QuickBooks Online and Xero.
“This solves a real, tangible problem for a lot of businesses that get physical checks,” said Earth Class Mail CEO Doug Breaker. “The solutions on the market today are not flexible, place a lot of burden on employees, don’t natively integrate with cloud services, and often don’t support small and medium businesses. CheckStream fixes those problems.”
With CheckStream all a business needs to do is update their payment mailing address with one of Earth Class Mail’s, available in all U.S. states. Earth Class Mail receives the checks, scans the entire contents to a
searchable PDF, endorses each check, reconciles the deposit, completes the deposit slip, and overnight mails
the deposit to any bank – with a full audit trail for each item.
You may have seen Chicago Gold Coast members Halo Top Creamery in the news recently. They are now the best selling pint of ice cream in the US, surpassing well-known brands like Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerrys.
Los Angeles based Halo Top Creamery is the first-ever, low-calorie ice cream that is 100% natural. Halo Top was founded in 2012 by former lawyer turned ice cream aficionado, Justin Woolverton, while he was on a quest to find an all-natural, low-calorie ice cream he could enjoy without guilt. Delivering premium ice cream people can actually feel good about eating, Halo Top is crafted with only the finest ingredients while remaining high in protein and low in sugar. Halo Top is available nationwide in the freezer aisle.
