Panini Avantor features a web-based open architecture featuring database and browser independence, enabling support for a wide variety of distributed environments including:
1. Financial Institutions - Branch Image Capture - Financial institutions with branch capture solutions can maintain efficiency of their equipment and reduce total cost of ownership. They can also control and manage assets, and improve user experience by maximizing scanner uptime, availability, and performance.
2. Financial Institutions & Enterprises - Remote Deposit Capture - Panini Avantor is perfectly suited for managing devices which are not under the bank's direct control providing risk mitigation and anti-fraud benefits, supported by Avantor's unique "Geolocation" capability to identify a scanner's physical location in real-time. Additionally, the end user enjoys an improved user experience and greater system availability which preserves RDC benefits by minimizing costs associated with failed transactions and system downtime.
