ScanBox check capture device for kiosksNorthbrook, IL, December 4, 2018 – ScanBox by Digital Check®, the popular tablet-based scanning platform for banking kiosks and self-service stations, is now available in North and South America after a successful introductory period in select overseas markets. After a notable debut at the Paris Banking Show in late 2016 – where it received an Innovation Award for new products – ScanBox has featured in several pilot programs for banks and retailers in Europe, Africa, India, and other locations around the globe.

The ScanBox platform includes a modified CheXpress® CX30 check scanner driven by an application-provider-defined tablet mounted in a secure metal enclosure. It can be used to capture checks and check-sized documents either as a standalone device or incorporated into a larger multi-function kiosk. The ScanBox network module supports secure WiFi and Ethernet connections based on support by the integrator, as well as 3G/4G connections when supported by the tablet and the integrator.

Several successful deployments in a variety of use cases have helped pave the way for the global launch of ScanBox. Besides its default role as a self-service option for bank branches, the device has also been used as bill pay collection points for private companies and government agencies, or alongside cash dispensers as a part of full-service, money service kiosks.

“Part of the appeal of ScanBox is its versatility in any number of situations,” says Alex Trombetta, Digital Check vice president of international sales. “It was made to be secure enough to use in an unattended or semi-attended location, yet small enough to incorporate into a variety of different external cases and designs. That vision has been proven as ScanBox is being adopted by banks and consumer-facing businesses alike.”

While in-person bill pay kiosks are in the early product adoption phase in the United States, their simplicity and relatively low cost have made them popular around the globe. Pilot projects for ScanBox-based kiosks are already underway in South America – and could be coming to a location near you.

“People all over the world pay phone bills, water bills, or make auto payments at kiosks, as a widely accepted – or even preferred – alternative to handing a check to a cashier,” Trombetta explained. “They are a cheap and effective way to keep lines moving, offer after-hours service, and provide an overall better customer experience. There is no reason why the same technology can’t be used anywhere in the world.”
