1. Auto Feed vs. Single Feed
When choosing a check scanner for your bank or credit union, there are top features that make each check scanner valuable in different ways. One of these diversifying features is the feed type. There are two types of feed: auto feed and single feed. The key differences between these two features are speed and control. With an auto feed check scanner, you can scan a high volume of checks without having to waste valuable time feeding every check individually. With the single feed check scanner, you can control each check scanned and prioritize attention to detail. Understand more about the benefits of auto feed versus single feed check scanners here.
Having access to a multitude of reliable manufacturers makes choosing a check scanner both easy and more difficult. Benchmark collaborates with high-quality manufacturers as partners to provide the best check scanners options for you and your financial institution. Knowing Benchmark partners with only the best, choosing a high-quality check scanner is the easy part. Because there are so many options though, you have to carefully evaluate each partners product offering to see what unique feature is the one you value the most when choosing a check scanner. Some manufacturers even offer space saving solutions. These devices are categorized as stackable.
3. Stackable vs. Non-Stackable
Organizing desk space can be a challenge in a bank or credit union. Selecting a check scanner that has a stackable option can be a determining factor if you need more space. The advantage of having stackable devices is more room to conduct transactions in banks or credit unions. Stackable devices are offered from Digital Check, Epson, Panini and more. Learn more information on how stackables can make an impact on your teller environment here.
