NCR Brings Digital Imaging Expertise To Point Of Sale

Thursday 13 November 2003 08:48 CET | News

NCR has unveiled a range of products and services to help retailers reap the benefits of digital check imaging at the point of sale (POS).

The NCR RealPOS 7167 multifunction printer is now available with a digital check-imaging module, for fast and accurate image capture at the POS. The new printer functionality, together with NCRs comprehensive software and service offerings, provides retailers a single-source option for check truncation or electronic check conversion solutions. The federal Check 21 legislation, which was signed into law on Oct. 28 and will become effective next year, permits the use of digital images as replacements for original paper checks throughout the nations banking system. Check imaging, which is required for businesses to take advantage of Check 21, offers additional advantages to retailers, including the capture of information for consumer marketing, added fraud protection and faster processing of checks returned for non-sufficient funds. Stores that implement check conversion instead of check truncation can also benefit from image capture. With check conversion, a store can use the magnetic ink character recognition (MICR)-reading capabilities of the NCR RealPOS 7167 to convert a customers paper check into an electronic debit transaction and return the voided check to the shopper. The addition of imaging enhances the conversion process, providing an unambiguous record of check information and added security. Currently installed NCR RealPOS 7167 printers with the MICR reader option can be upgraded to include the check-imaging module. NCRs check-imaging offerings include its proven ImageMark software, a flexible and scalable platform for image capture and processing at the store, regional office or chain headquarters. ImageMark and the NCR RealPOS 7167 can be integrated with NCR store automation applications such as Advanced Checkout Solution or Advanced Store, as well as with open third-party POS software. In addition, NCR is working with software partners, including ACI Worldwide and AJB Software Design Inc. to provide enterprise-level check truncation routing and processing capabilities. Check imaging also presents retailers with an additional opportunity to efficiently capture information for customer relationship management applications such as those offered by Teradata, a division of NCR. With a complete range of consulting, development and integration, installation, education and maintenance services, NCR can help assure a successful check-imaging solution implementation at any point in the enterprise.
