In a country where checks are still being used as an important mode of payment, a digital check scanner can make a huge difference. Firstly, it can save you a lot of time and can help you get more organized. The cost of ownership of digital scanners is not high and the maintenance is quite negligible. You may have thought of investing in a digital scanner but would not have done it so far because you are not sure which one is the right one for you. Here are a few tips on how to decide which scanner will be ideal for you.
See the Volume of Checks
What kind of digital scanner will be ideal for you depends on the number of checks that you are processing on a daily basis – yes, on a daily basis. Take a stock of how many check you process in a day. If you are processing less than 50 checks per day then single-feed check scanner will be good enough. However if you are processing more than 50 checks per day and expect the volumes to increase, then it would be ideal to get a high speed scanner with automatic feeder.
Check the Cost
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, then you can look at single food check scanners. They are priced reasonably but the time taken by them to process one check is more because of the manual feeding of check that needs to be done. The high speed scanners with automatic feeder will cost 2-3 times more than single feed scanners but the time taken to process of bunch of 50 checks will be very less. The automatic check feeding system means you eliminate the need to manually feed checks into the scanner.
