Remote Check Capture – (Check 21)

Talking the Talk

Confusion about electronic check services is understandable. Remote deposit capture, remote check capture, back office conversion, electronic check conversion – these are just some of the terms used by ISOs, merchants and bankers to describe the process of truncating paper checks, then clearing and settling those payments through electronic networks (e.g.: the ACH or check clearing network).

The application is a Web-based user interface that includes imager interfaces to the majority of scanners available in the marketplace today. Our solution incorporates ACH Origination, back-end processing and remote deposit. In most settings, both ACH and remote deposit services are utilized, since it is still more economical to clear payments through the ACH network. Our solution provides you with a decision database for ACH eligible items, enabling you to accept and electronify all check types and have them routed to the most appropriate end-point for processing.

Whether you are looking to centralize your processing for a single or multi-location, the application supports an account hierarchy based on your security privileges.

  • Increased funds availability (in many cases)
  • Ability to reduce the number of bank relationships
  • Simplified concentration of deposited fund
