Business check printing software from Printech Global
It’s amazing that with all the technology available in this day and age, the majority of companies are still printing and processing their checks the old fashioned way without using business check printing software .
What is the ‘Old Fashioned Way’, you may ask?
Under the rules of this traditional method, the check printing process consists of the following steps:
- Managing multiple pre-printed check Forms
- Storing / Securing check stock
- Maintaining Inventory of Check Stock
- Retrieving Check Stock & Loading onto Printer
- Printing the Checks
- Bursting the Checks
- Decollating the Checks
- Signing the Checks
- Sorting the Checks
- Distributing the Checks
The traditional system requires that checks be printed for each bank account, company and/or bank in use for the particular check payment application. This system must use expensive pre-printed check forms and may often require even more expensive multi-part stock. Forms wasted with alignment errors and printer jams must be accounted for. Stub overflows must be printed on this expensive stationary and the check portion rendered non-negotiable.
This situation not only demands a significant investment on the part of the company. It also exposes the company to the risk of obsolescence should there be a change in the relationship with their existing bank. This methodology also means that companies must be extra vigilant in the securing and protection of the unused check stock to safeguard it against unauthorized access and potential risk of fraud.
Management is often subjected to the task of signing all the checks manually, a very tedious and time-consuming operation.
In other cases, a metal plate has been burnt with the signatures to be applied to the checks and this requires that the check be passed through a mechanical signer. Strict procedures need to be implemented for the use and safekeeping of the signature plates.
An investment in business check printing software, check bursting and decollating equipment is often necessary to separate the checks from their copies, and in some cases from carbon paper as well. This results in a very time consuming and messy operation.
Now it comes time to start processing the checks for distribution. The checks must be manually inserted, sealed, stamped and distributed. This operation requires, in many cases, that several individuals be involved in this procedure to expedite its completion. Moreover, it exposes sensitive and confidential information to the eyes of many whom have no need to know.
The time required to perform these operations can fluctuate from one full day to several days depending on the volume of checks involved without using a business check printing software. Several employees may be involved in this time consuming operation.
Does This Sound Like You?
You may think that the old fashioned way of processing payments is working for you. However, after analyzing this process, you’ll agree that the check printing process has become quite a burdensome, tedious, time consuming, and costly operation indeed.
