A2iA CheckReader Shortens Processing Times, Reduces Risk and Helps Fight Fraud in Deposit-Automation-Enabled ATMs

First Georgia Community Bank Company deploys completely electronic, enhanced-deposit-automation solution.

New York, NY, April 28, 2011 --(PR.com)-- A2iA, the worldwide leading developer of tools for document analysis and handwritten and machine-printed data extraction, announced today that its comprehensive check-processing toolkit, A2iA CheckReader™, is deployed at the First Georgia Community Banking Company in their first completely electronic, enhanced-deposit-automation solution. As a component of CFS DepositWizard ATM, a solution that allows for the image capture of a check-deposit at the ATM instead of the central processing center, A2iA CheckReader seamlessly provides a verification of the check-image quality and usability, as well as performs recognition on all data-points on the check, including CAR (courtesy amount) and LAR (legal amount) mismatch.

CFS Inc., in partnership with CashTrans and Columbus Data Services (CDS), developed this scalable solution, which is integrated into Nautilus Hyosung’s MX 7600i enhanced deposit automation ATM with Bulk Note Accepter (BNA)/ Bulk Check Acceptor (BCA).

DepositWizard ATM with A2iA CheckReader is a scalable solution that can be deployed in-house or in a hosted environment, accelerating timelines, reducing operating costs and combating fraud at the point of deposit. It allows users to securely connect and automatically process transactions from the deposit automation-enabled ATMs to the financial institutions’ back office, with no human intervention required. This significantly shortens processing and posting times and virtually eliminates the risk for “empty-envelope” fraud. Customers are also given the convenience of making secure deposit transactions at any time, despite teller hours.

DepositWizard ATM with A2iA CheckReader is available to banks and credit unions as either an in-house or hosted solution. For more information, contact CFS, Inc. at +1 850-386-2902 or www.CFSsolutions.com.
