MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- To create new
operational efficiencies for bank tellers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging
solutions, and Atris Technology, a software development firm
specializing in automation solutions in the financial services
industry, today announced the successful deployment of Canon's
imageFORMULA CR-120 check scanners across six offices of Citizens
Bank of Florida (Oviedo, FL). The joint solution of Canon
scanner technology and Atris FlexTeller system helps to streamline
workflow by removing the cumbersome task of scanning items using
back counter branch capture, which requires tellers to complete
transactions for customers, and then later encode tickets and scan
items at a later time, away from their window.
"One of the main goals to invest in this combination solution
was to create new operational efficiencies for our tellers while
maintaining an accurate and seamless customer service experience,"
says Susie Pieper, svp operations
officer of Citizens Bank of Florida. "Scanner reliability and ease of use
are key components of teller capture, and we are pleased with the
The combination of Atris FlexTeller, which routinely manages
many of the auditing tasks previously performed by tellers and back
office personnel, and Canon's imageFORMULA CR 120 scanners' fast
speed, scanning up to 120 items-per-minute, helps to reduce manual
labor. This enables tellers to complete transactions quickly and
more efficiently. Additionally, through its 150-item capacity
automatic document feeder, these scanners help eliminate dependency
on certain back counter hardware, even when larger municipalities
make bulk deposits, helping to save valuable time.
"Converting paper tickets into electronic items as early as
possible helps create significant cost savings," said Scott McElhiney, sales manager at Atris
Technology. "In addition to capturing physical items at the point
of presentment, this environment helps eliminate dependency on
paper cash tickets and general ledger forms, driving an even faster
return on investment."
"Canon's check scanners deliver reliability and productivity,
making distributed capture a smoother experience for financial
institutions, especially for community banks like Citizens Bank of
Florida where exceptional service
is crucial," says Shinichi Yoshida,
executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "As a company dedicated to our
customer-first mindset, Canon is proud to combine our efficient
scanning technology with Atris teller software automation to create
a better user experience for customers."
