NCR has entered a global reseller agreement with Illinois-based Digital Check to offer a range of low volume scanners for distributed branch image capture.
From a small teller scanner through unattended, back office branch devices, NCR says the family of products will lower the cost of cheque processing, accelerate cheque clearing and position a bank for image-based cheque truncation. The scanners may also be used for remittance processing and microfilm replacement, says NCR.
"Distributing the capture function closer to the point of acceptance and removing paper from the process is a top of mind issue for many banks," says Jose Pincetic, vice president, NCR Payment Solutions. "Digital Check's range of scanners provide the image quality and transport reliability required for a viable lower volume market solution," he adds.
The scanners will be integrated with NCR's transport controller interface, WiseIP (Windows Integrated Services Environment for Item Processing), which is intended to simplifys the application development process and provide an easy-to-use Microsoft Windows NT interface. WiseIP enables NCR to integrate its ImageMark proof-of-deposit (POD) and ImageMark Advantage with a comprehensive family of image capture solutions.
