Track and Process Bad Checks
Items may be tagged as returned, fraudulent, or refused. When performing
a check search, bad items are clearly displayed. digiCHECK
incorporates a return item processing module that scans items directly
into a bad check library. Any information entered in digiCHECK
is also automatically available on the web. Once on the web, collections
department personnel and mangers can change the status of any item
from bad to good and back again. Build your own bad check repository!
Centralized Check Approval Process
Supported by digiCHECK as well as in integrated point-of-sale (POS) system from a
digiCHECK.net Integrated Partner, tellers effortlessly scan and transmit check and ID images to
digiCHECK.net that they used to photocopy and fax to a manager for approval. Once uploaded, managers are alerted when there is an item that needs approval and have, at their finger tips, access to range of tools used to identify the maker and the customer. The transmitted images are presented in a web browser with supporting intelligence information a manager needs to make an approval decision such as: maker address and phone number, OFAC search, and a chain wide display of other checks accepted from the maker - with any return information. “I have a hard enough time making out the faxed images of checks and IDs let alone handling the large volume of paper,” said Jon Klein of Barr Management. “Using the Send-For-Approval process in
digiCHECK, the teller simply scans the item, answers a few simple questions and right away I see crystal clear images and comments right to my web browser. I have all of the information I need to approve or deny the check – and my decision is recorded. I love this solution!”
Connect Stores and Partners
Compliance officers, managers, and tellers use digiCHECK.net to instantly search across the entire chain for a single check image or a group of check images. Compliance Reports can be prepared from a single location - even in another state. At the store level, tellers can do a maker search across the entire chain for check image verification as well as endorsement verification. Optionally, business partners may share check images between their companies or specific stores. With very little effort, sharing fraudulent refused, and return items and limited information with your partners by scanning the items is a huge step forward in reducing fraud.
