Combining the two solutions can enable PayCourier customers to accept payments at a business location such as corporate office, then send them electronically to their bank's centralized lockbox processing center.

We are committed to providing extended payment processing capabilities to our customers, and the CheckFree Web Capture solution allows us to achieve that objective in a very fast and efficient manner, said Simon Fisher, vice president Global Product Services for BancTec. Careful evaluation demonstrated that CheckFree's Web Capture has the security, ease-of-deployment, robustness and scalability necessary to merge seamlessly into our service oriented strategy for developing and deploying payment and document solutions.

CheckFree's Web Capture is a solution for businesses that would typically capture any number of items a day. It is an easy-to-use, browser-based solution offering check image capture and processing and requiring minimal software at the client site.

A key benefit of adding Web Capture to BancTec's payment processing solution is enabling end customers to capture payments over-the-counter, thus complementing their primary, high-speed capture operations. The new function can also capture exceptions and can handle unclean payments, ensuring that operations are streamlined and fully optimized to include workflows such as single, multiple, check and list and document capture. To ensure that images are eligible for Check 21, a fully integrated image quality control module is included within the solution.

Another core feature available in the complex payment options includes the ability to capture full pages using either a personal desktop scanner or a flow mode combo scanner, thus enabling branch personnel to key and correct information not properly read by the scanner.

We are pleased that BancTec has selected our solutions to help their customers process transactions faster and reduce their costs.
