Teachers are allocated hundreds of dollars each year so as to meet the unique educational requirements of their respective course curriculums.

“Upon receiving the program from FLEX on a Friday, we produced the report and identified all members affected,” said Kirk Mondy, President of Poplar Bluff Federal Credit Union. “We contacted each member inviting them to the credit union where we were able to instant-issue a new card without having to perform a mass re-issue.

FLEX Selects Orbograph for Check Recognition in FLEX Check21 Teller Platform

Solution delivers automation to teller image capture for credit unions

October 22, 2012 – Salt Lake City, UT and Billerica, MA – FLEX, the newest and most architecturally advanced core solution for credit unions, along with Orbograph, a leading supplier of recognition solutions for the U.S. check processing market as well as paper and electronic payment solutions for healthcare revenue cycle management (RCM), today announced that the JAVA-based FLEXTeller Check21 image capture system is now integrated with Orbograph’s check recognition solutions. Orbograph was selected as the vendor of choice for check recognition software as an integrated and embedded component to the FLEX teller platform.

As financial institutions continue to adopt image capture at the teller line, many purchase a separate module from a non core provider which is implemented through integration with the teller system. By implementing a natively developed solution within the FLEX platform, FLEX is able to deliver an unprecedented level of interoperability between the images, account history and teller application. This provides streamlined teller operations, customer service benefits, archival standardization as well as superior software usability.
