The article focuses on the aspects of check and document image capturing programs which are expected to define the future for banks. The legal need to retain paper checks along with accuracy limitations associated with character recognition technologies require checks to be put through data capture routines. Check imaging becomes viable with increase in check truncation and improvement in recognition technologies. According to Bank Austria Creditanstalt, check and document imaging programs have about 80 per cent recognition rates.
