Unisys Corp. enhanced its checkimaging product in an effort to appeal to a wider range of financial institutions. It will now include a remote processing capability and an imageenabled, 1,000-item-per-minute document processor. The system, which includes a read module, a document processor, an application server, workstations, power encoders, and the imaging software, can be implemented for under $1 million.
Users no longer have to put processing operations in the same site as the image application. An optional feature allows financial institutions to process checks and other payment documents at remote locations without an image application server or extensive telecommunications equipment. They can use PC workstations to capture and balance transactions. The information is sent to a centralized image application server using standard networking. A variety of images can be transmitted from the remote site, including exception items such as returns and stop/holds, drafts and cash management items, statement image files, and signature verification.
