Teller capture & RDC scanner - Elite 55

The SmartSource Elite 55 is a multi-feed check scanner that delivers higher speeds and higher capacity than most devices for remote deposit capture (RDC), without the high price tag. 

With a 100-document capacity and a top speed of 55 documents per minute, it is ideal for higher-volume remote deposit capture customers who may prefer a multi-feed scanner, but don’t quite need the full feature set of a teller device. The Elite 55 is available with a single-line inkjet endorser and includes the same automated cleaning and ID capture capabilities as the rest of the Elite product line. 

The Elite 55 is the direct successor to the SmartSource Merchant Elite, our previous-generation multi-feed device.

Key Features & Benefits

Built with the Remote Deposit Capture User in Mind

Bank Quality at a Small Business Price

The SmartSource Elite 55 has been optimized for remote deposit capture applications. With a processing speed of 55 documents per minute and a 100-document auto-feeder, it can quickly process batches of documents. The robust, low-maintenance design and ease of use ensure a positive user experience. 

Its compact footprint means the Elite 55 does not take up much desk space, but it delivers performance for the largest operation but at an affordable cost for small businesses and merchants. This compact scanner can scan large or small batches for businesses, with an option for rear endorsement. Businesses can even scan ID cards with this device. The SmartSource Elite 55 is a great option for businesses that receive more than 10-20 checks per day. 

The SmartSource Elite 55 is built with Digital Check quality and reliability. You can rest assured that your deposits will be scanned quickly and efficiently with this small workhorse of a scanner.

Automatic Cleaning Mode

New Elite series scanners come with an automatic cleaning mode to help you with the maintenance of your device. As seen in the demonstration video at right, cleaning mode can be activated by pressing the Smart LED button three times, and the scanner scrubs the cleaning card against key components. This removes any chance for operator error and ensures the device is cleaned thoroughly. The LED indicator also reminds you when it is time for maintenance.

Even better, if you already own a recent Elite series scanner that does not have this enhancement, you can still enable the new cleaning mode through a firmware update. (Contact us for details.)

600 dpi Front-Feed
ID Card Capture

As technology evolves, more and more banks are phasing out the standard magstripe “swipe” reading for ID cards and using the full scanned images of IDs instead. This opens a whole new realm of possibilities from security tests to auto-populating data, to customer recognition and KYC compliance initiatives.

No matter how you are using ID card images, chances are you already have a check scanner at the teller window, so using it to capture IDs also is a win-win situation. We have made that even easier with a new front-facing ID card track built into every SmartSource Elite series scanner.

Many of the smaller machine-readable features on ID cards — such as bar codes and microprinting — need a high-resolution image, so we have upgraded the image sensors on the Elite series to capture in 600 dpi full color.

Changing the Game for Business RDC

You Won’t Find a Better Multi-Feed Scanner for the Money.

Teller capture & RDC scanner - Elite 55

Built on Proven Technology

If you want the quality and dependability that comes with banking-grade equipment, but without the big price tag, the Elite 55 has everything you need. Based on the same chassis as the industry-renowned SmartSource Elite series of teller scanners, it shares the same design and uses the same common parts as those models. The scanner you use comes from the same place as the one your teller does — but it is priced competitively even with many single-feed devices.

Is Multi-Feed Right for Me?

If you are new to remote deposit capture, you may be wondering if you really need a multi-feed check scanner. While it is ultimately a matter of personal preference, most customers tend to prefer one if they regularly have batches of more than a few checks at a time — for example, if they scan all their check payments at once at the end of the day. For the payment volumes that businesses usually experience, it is less a matter of whether the device is capable of handling all the items fast enough, than whether feeding documents by hand one at a time is going to slow down your work. Either way, the Elite 55 was designed to be affordable enough that we hope it makes the decision easy!
