A2iA Recognized for Helping Community Banks Better Serve Their Customers

Hyland Software’s OnBase solution with A2iA CheckReader™ named ‘Honorable Mention’ by BankNews Innovative Solutions Awards.

New York, NY, December 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- A2iA, the worldwide leading software developer of tools for handwritten and machine-printed text recognition, data extraction, and the intelligent classification of paper documents, announced today that it has received an Honorable Mention designation in the 2010 BankNews Innovative Solutions Awards for the nomination submitted cooperatively with Hyland Software.

With more than 2,000 votes cast, the Innovative Solutions Awards recognize solutions that have significantly enhanced products designed to help community banks better serve their customers.

Hyland Software’s OnBase solutions, including the branch capture module with A2iA CheckReader™, a comprehensive check-processing toolkit, enables financial institutions to perform batch capture of check images and recognize the associated MICR line, allowing them to take advantage of Check 21 processing. The dollar amount of each check is also captured automatically with A2iA CheckReader’s CAR/LAR (Courtesy Amount Recognition / Legal Amount Recognition) functionality. As a built-in feature of A2iA CheckReader, the toolkit utilizes its proprietary, advanced neural network and artificial intelligence to detect mismatched CAR / LAR amounts in real-time. Then, the check images are looked at for image-quality and balanced at either the branch or in the back-office. Once the batches are balanced, they are imported and archived to OnBase for permanent storage and for further Check 21 processing.

Financial institutions utilizing this integrated solution see tangible benefits, including:
- Reduced manual efforts by the teller.
- Reduced costly transaction errors.
- Increased processing speeds.
- Improved fund availability with shortened float times.

The OnBase solution with A2iA CheckReader is available worldwide through Hyland. For more information, visit www.hyland.com.
