New Markets, Courtesy of Check 21

Product: VCS 250
Company: VisionShape

When the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act, or Check 21, went into effect last October, it was not the advent of check imaging at the POS. It did, however, broaden the market for check scanners.

Eliminating the processing of paper checks, the methods used for imaging and truncation have reduced the time, cost and risk involved in transporting checks to all the necessary points along the way for clearing.

These methods are used more frequently all the time, and they require devices that will capture clear check images for digital transmittal. Document imaging company VisionShape has introduced its latest check scanner, the VCS 250. The scanner meets the requirements necessary for digital transmission of clear, readable check images.

Designed to process low volumes of checks, the VCS 250 simultaneously scans both sides of the check and reads the MICR line. It has a unique face-up, flatbed feed, weighs about three pounds and takes up a minimum amount of counter space.

The scanner is ideal in locations such as bank and insurance company branches, gas stations, convenience stores, movie theatres and grocery stores and other retail locations. As check electronification increases, there will be more merchant demand for devices that accomplish these processes. VisionShape made available evaluation units in May 2005; the complete device will be ready for roll out by the end of summer 2005.
