HANNOVER, GERMANY, March 1, 2011 – Digital Check, a provider of desktop cheque scanners and remote deposit capture technology to the financial industry, announced the international launch of the TellerScan® TS240 TTP (teller transaction printer), a combination unit that incorporates cheque scanning and thermal transaction printing into one device for bank teller counters and merchant environments where receipt printing is needed and counter space is limited, at CeBIT, the largest international technology event in the world.
The device combines Digital Check’s reliable, 5th generation TS240 batch-fed scanner, which scans at 50, 75 or 100 documents per minute, with CognitiveTPG’s fast and reliable A799 thermal printer. Digital Check has deployed over a quarter of a million scanners worldwide and CognitiveTPG has over a million installations of its receipt and label printers worldwide. The combined development effort grew in response to ongoing feedback from the teller market over the need for enhanced scanning, printing and space savings.
The benefit of the TS240/TTP is that it saves up to 50% of valuable teller counter space by combining scanner and receipt printer units, each of which previously required its own space, into one footprint about equivalent to the scanner. The TS240/TTP will also allow financial institutions to print bank branding, cheque images, and even variable marketing promotional and loyalty messages on each receipt independent of the teller application. The thermal printer can print cheque images from the customer’s deposit, as well as variable targeted marketing messages, similar to the types of transaction receipts customers are receiving from image ATMs.
“The TS240/TTP has seen tremendous acceptance in our U.S. market and we expect it to be a hit internationally as well. As banks look for greater efficiencies in the branch, this product is the perfect solution to achieve that at the teller window,” said Alex Trombetta, managing director of Digital Check’s international sales division. Kyle Turner, General Manager for CognitiveTPG added, “Thermal printing has proven to be both cost-effective and adaptable to be able to print the types of information in the format required by the financial institution. Combining these two devices together is a winning combination and already successful in the U.S. We look forward to similar success internationally.”
The TS240/TTP is available through Digital Check’s network of solution partners. For more information, visit Digital Check at CeBIT (Hall 11, Stand F45) along with our European regional partner,Checkprint Ltd, or visit www.digitalcheck.com.
