Increased automation of payments has seen a reduction in cheque printing but many organisations continue to have a need for cheque processing printing and mailing.
October 2017 saw the launch of the Image Clearing System (ICS) replacing the Paper Clearing System (PCS).
Cheques are now processed through the ICS which enables an image of a cheque to be exchanged with the payer’s bank rather than the physical cheque.
This means that cheque payments can be cleared faster and funds made available to the payee the next working day.
Working closely with our cheque production partner, cheque printing is more secure following the introduction of ISSF or Image Survivable Security Features providing increased anti cheque fraud features onto the cheques we print.
ISSF’s can be printed on cheques in the form of a special ISSF, QR code or Unique Coded Number.
What is ISSF?
It is any mark printed on a cheque that survives the process of being scanned or imaged so that it remains legible and visible on the image in a digital format.
In other words the cheque becomes tamper proof. Counterfeit items, items presented multiple times, altered cheques are detectable.
ISSF’s enable cheque data to be captured and encrypted within a unique coded number or bar code that can be applied to the paper cheque.
This ensures the validation of the cheque when the image is scanned through the ICS.
