Secure Payment Systems Releases Check 21 Offering

SPS Introduces Web-based, Patent Pending Check 21 Process

(San Diego, CA) Secure Payment Systems (SPS), a national leader of value added payment services and transaction processing is proud to announce the introduction of its new Check21/ARC solution branded as “expresscheck21SM”.

A hybrid, “patent pending” web-based platform that processes and deposits all types of paper items including business checks into electronic transactions (Image Replacement Documents known as “IRD”) or substitute checks, all through a single point of entry system, expresscheck21SM is designed for clients that want to process both consumer and commercial checks without leaving their business location. Using a high speed, multiple check scanner, or a simple, single pass check imager, the checks are processed in the back-office where they are scanned and electronically deposited eliminating time consuming bank visits, saving on multiple register scanners, and bank charges. The choice to clear the funds either by image transfer or ACH based on the type of check presented and cost involved makes this a sophisticated offering.

“We have listened to our clients and sales agents and embraced the future of check presentment with a truly outstanding product offering,” commented Nadeem Ahmed, recently hired Sr. Product Manager of Secure Payment Systems. Steve Eazell, National Director of Sales & Marketing added, “We look forward to providing clients the ability to save time, money and effort with a simple, easy-to-use Web-based interface.”
