SmartSource® Professional cheque scanner

Cummins Allison SmartSource Processional cheque scanner

The newest SmartSource®Professional is designed to meet customer needs in front counter, back office, and merchant environments. The new SmartSource Professional is easier to operate and requires minimal operator maintenance.

Improved Efficiency

The new open feeder reduces document preparation requirements and enables easy loading of documents by automatically opening the input hopper when empty. The SmartSource Professional can be configured to start feeding automatically when documents are loaded into the feeder. In case of a document jam, the SmartClear button eliminates the need to open or remove covers to retrieve the document.

Reduced Maintenance Requirements

The SmartSource Professional is engineered to process high volumes of daily items, yet it requires minimal maintenance. When needed, cleaning is easy. Often, all that is required is a rapid cleaning procedure which uses a cleaning card and does not require opening or removing any covers. The optional ink-jet endorser uses a custom ink formulation which eliminates the need for operators to clean the cartridge. The result is more time for the operator to be productive servicing their clients, and less time spent on periodic maintenance and consumable replacement.

Standard Features

The SmartSource Professional is a perfect fit in any PC-based environment. Its extensive set of features offers unparalleled flexibility. Standard features include an auto-feeder with an open feeder design for improved productivity, industry-leading Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) reader, superior image quality with 300 dpi image cameras, endorsement and pocket decisions based on MICR and/or front image content such as optical character recognition (OCR), barcode recognition, or image quality results. The SmartSource Professional also includes the capability to scan a variety of documents, such as ATM envelopes and very short pieces of paper (less than three inches in length).
