Check Scanner Speed Importance
A fantastic resource from one of our trusted partners, Digital Check, has a dedicated guide to check scanner speed. Our reputable partners often have great resources on device functions and features as well as instructional guides. The great start to familiarizing yourself with check scanner speed is to look at the functionality. First, determine what your check scanner will be used for. Check scanners can be placed in a variety of environments and thrive. However, implementing a check scanner that isn’t compatible with your needs can be frustrating and cost you time and money. If you purchase the check scanner without considering speed you could make it difficult for the user. Financial institutions and businesses or merchants are some of the top users of check scanning devices. Often banks and credit unions need check scanners for several capabilities including scanning checks and even identification verification. However, Digital Check’s guide references that the average number of checks processed by tellers were fewer than six checks. Speed in this type of environment could be almost imperceptible. However, businesses or merchants who use check scanners could be scanning checks by the hundreds. While speed will support customer satisfaction with tellers at banks and credit unions it isn’t necessarily a make-or-break feature. However, speed is a necessity for businesses or merchants that are implementing check scanners. Examining the context in which the check scanner is being used will inform you which check scanner is best.
Different Levels of Speed
Financial institutions and businesses using check scanners may require different needs but ultimately both have to select which speed is the most compatible with those needs. The volume of checks helps categorize speed by function. Low volume check scanner speeds can have speeds around 60 to 75 documents per minute (dpm). The speed of each check scanner may not play a large role in the success of scanning checks at the teller pod or window or also known as teller capture. Mid to high volume check scanners operate at speeds ranging from 100-200 dpm. These check scanners are a great resource for businesses or merchants in a RDC programs. RDC programs or Remote Deposit capture programs allow businesses to forgo the trip to the bank and instead can scan checks directly from home. RDC programs offer a lot of benefits to financial institutions and businesses. RDC customers are unique in that each need of the merchant is unique to their business. This makes RDC both capable of low to high volume check scanning. Typically large volume scanning can be seen in a banking operations setting. Large-volume scanning can involve thousands of checks that need to be scanned. This volume is typical of back-counter operations at banks and credit unions. This volume requires a fast and focused check scanner that has the speed necessary to scan quickly. Remember to take time to explore the different features of check scanners because each feature could make an impact in unexpected ways.
