ACOM Financial Documents Division Expands Family of In-House Check Printing Solutions For Community Banks and Credit Unions12/15/2005
Atlanta, Georgia -- December 15, 2005 -- The Financial Documents Division of ACOM Solutions, Inc. http://www.inhousechecks.com, the leading provider of in-house customer check production systems for banks and credit unions, has introduced an innovative hardware-software solution that consolidates the post-printing checkbook finishing process in a single, semi-automated device, it was announced today by Vice President Mark Firmin.
ACOM’s new QuickCheck System 400 rounds out a portfolio of four scalable and interchangeable in-house check systems that support financial institutions with assets from as little as $50 million up to $2 billion. The new solution features a table-top design that incorporates cutting, stapling and taping into a single continuous-flow process, reducing operator effort and doubling the production speed of the basic QuickCheck 100 system.
Ideally suited to the needs of banks from $100- to $250 million assets and credit unions of 10,000 to 20,000 members, the QuickCheck System 400 enables institutions to provide superior customer service by delivering customer check orders quickly and at lower cost, to capture more profit per check order and to reduce the costs of free-check programs dramatically.
Most institutions using ACOM In-House Checks systems offer next-day delivery, but in emergency situations they can provide checks in just a few minutes, versus the 10 days normally required by third party check vendors. The system is typically operated by existing personnel as an adjunct to other duties or by part-time personnel.
To produce checks using the QuickCheck System 400, the operator generates a pad of checks using the QuickCheck software and a MICR enhanced laser printer, places the pad of checks on the unit’s finishing table and executes a three-step process. In the first step, the operator slides the check pad through stapling; next the pad of checks is taped and finally, cut. The process is repeated three times, and the end product is a box of checkbooks that equals or exceed the quality of counterparts obtained from third party check vendors.
“With the System 400, ACOM completes the build-out of a family of solutions that can meet the needs of financial institutions of virtually any size or branch configuration,” Firmin said. “Importantly, the company also offers an extremely flexible range of acquisition opportunities. These range from outright purchase to partnership plans that can involve very minor capital investments, with ACOM’s compensation coming in the form of a percentage of the profits on each check order. ACOM provides all of the installation, training, maintenance and support that institutions require, as well as maintains a consistent level of check printing supplies.”
