Digital Check, a provider of desktop check scanners and remote deposit capture technology to the financial industry worldwide, announced that it has established a direct presence in Brazil and has appointed Adrian Henigman country manager for Brazil.
With the highest volume of check use in Latin and South America, Brazil is poised to enact legislation supporting check imaging, remote deposit capture and electronic check truncation. Digital Check is ready to assist Brazilian financial institutions and their corporate, retail and small business clients with electronic check payments by offering check scanners that provide the highest quality images, CMC7 MICR reading accuracy, product reliability and lowest overall total cost of ownership in the industry.
"Digital Check has more than 10 years of experience with electronic check truncation in the United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, India and Latin America, and brings this experience and knowledge to Brazilian financial institutions as they make the transition from paper to imaged check processing;" said Alex Trombetta, managing director for international markets for Digital Check. "This is the right time to invest in Brazil's financial services industry because the need for scanning technology for distributed check processing will only increase. Digital Check's focus is on developing strong partnerships with key Brazilian and international solution providers in order to best serve this very promising and challenging market."
Based in Sao Paulo, Henigman has more than 20 years of international financial industry experience working with both Brazilian and multinational corporations such as Unisys, AT&T and NCR Corporation. His responsibilities within Digital Check consist of establishing partnerships with Brazilian technology companies as well as introducing the full range of Digital Check products, including the award winning CheXpress® CX30, a cost effective bank quality scanner, to the Brazilian financial market.
The competitively priced CheXpress® CX30 is a good match for the Brazilian market since its size, price and ease of use are in line with the needs of financial institutions and retail merchants that accept checks at the point of sale and make up a significant share of the country's check transactions. The CheXpress® CX30 includes high resolution cameras, patented CMC7 MICR read technology, multiple imaging and a rear ink-jet printer that adds an audit trail to the physical check to uniquely identifying each with a date and transaction number to provide the level of risk management typically seen in higher priced devices.
Digital Check's presence in the country also includes exhibiting at the CIAB Febraban annual conferences and expanding partnerships with Brazilian solution providers, resellers and system integrators.
