The proposal to APS Bank was designed around the client, to address all of these issues.
The Bank needed a processing system to reconcile cheques and post them into the system.
Canon’s authorised partner Avantech, proposed a customized application that is able to scan and process cheques and finally, post them into the Bank’s ERP system. This application was then upgraded to scan ID cards and collect signatures. Together with this application, the Bank purchased Canon DR-C130 and DR-C230 scanners, which were distributed throughout the Bank’s branches. The Canon equipment allowed the staff to scan various customer documents directly from the branches’ frontline, significantly reducing back-office administration and increasing operational efficiency.
The Bank wanted to replace a legacy system with a specialized statement printing solution that is capable of integrating with the Bank’s digital channels in a more streamlined and efficient manner. In doing so, the Bank chose to consolidate the digitization efforts into one platform.
Avantech designed a tailor-made solution, with Canon, that enabled APS to generate these statements. Part of this solution includes PlanetPress, which gave the Bank the facility to generate large amounts of monthly statements in a short period of time, for both digitized and printed versions. This also gave the Bank the ability to customise these statements to suit their needs.
APS Bank was looking to replace its current printing equipment fleet, and to digitize documents.
Avantech was able to show the Bank that by combining document digitization, document generation and Canon hardware, they would achieve significant gains in efficiency, compliance and costs. In running the same Scan2x capture solution across the bank on all their scanners, PCs and multifunctional devices, the Bank were able to extend document capture to every user in the bank with no training requirement. Canon’s fleet management tools revealed multiple quick wins for the Bank when implementing their integrated multifunctional printers, resulting in enhanced business workflows, increased return on investment and the integration of business logic into each device. Avantech also proposed uniFLOW and TrueMPS output management solutions, offering the Bank a secure document print workflow system, ensuring that only authorised employees could print. Through this solution, the Bank gained the ability to manage its new fleet of Canon multifunctional copiers, and instantly issue reports on its fleet utilization, monitoring consumption by sector, department and user.
