Diversified Check Solutions Integrates A2iA CheckReader™ Into ACHeck21™, its Industry-Leading, Second-Generation, Remote Deposit

The ACHeck21™ software suite -- combined with the A2iA CheckReader™ -- offers ACH and remote-image deposit solutions that focuses on the needs of the customer.

Lake St. Louis, Mo. and New York (AllPayNews) August 22, 2008 -- Diversified Check Solutions, a provider of end-to-end ACH and Check 21 processing systems, announced today that its ACHeck21™ payment processing solution is now integrated with A2iA CheckReader™, a comprehensive set of tools that locates and reads key transactional information from paper checks and other related-payment documents.

ACHeck21 was developed to provide more than just remote check deposit - it allows for best-route decisioning on how to process a check, integration into most accounting software, as well as robust image archiving and retrieval for internal workflow enhancements.

As one of the first applications that some industry experts are calling "second-generation" remote deposit solutions, ACHeck21 focuses on the needs of the end-users rather than those of the financial institutions. Embedding A2iA CheckReader into the ACHeck21 Solution Suite is an example of this, as ACHeck21 eliminates the need for manual data-entry of information and allows for the automatic decisioning of how to best process a check. A2iA CheckReader also provides ACHeck21 users with the ability to confirm check-image quality and usability according to the latest industry standards.

"The integration of A2iA CheckReader makes the ACHeck21 solution faster and easier to use than ever before," stated ACHeck21 Principal Architect, Bret Hillbun. "This is another step for ACHeck 21 to improve the service and capabilities for our users."

The ACHeck21 Solution Suite can be deployed across all industries -- banks, credit unions, merchants, utilities, local governments, non-profit agencies and small businesses - and is fully compliant with both NACHA and the Federal Reserve's Check 21 guidelines.

With current installations throughout the United States, ACHeck21 intends to deploy their fully scalable payment processing solution worldwide to anyone accepting checks as a form of payment.
