Remote Deposit Capture 2.0: Next Generation Remote Deposit Capture

To address the challenge of traditional Remote Deposit Capture, companies have started using traditional RDC in conjunction with Artificial Intelligence enabled cash application, in what has been termed as RDC 2.0. RDC 2.0 integrate remote check deposit with straight-through cash application.

RDC Integrated with Cash Application

RDC Integrated with Cash Application Flowchart   Step 1. Scanning Unlike traditional RDC scanners, RDC 2.0 is able to scan checks and remittances together in one batch. Each batch is capable of scanning up to 100 checks at one go. Once the checks get scanned, the solution captures data with high accuracy and precision with its inbuilt Magnetic strip based MICR capture and OCR based data capture. Step 2. Transmission of the enriched file With the scanned data, the solution creates an enriched electronic file consisting of the payment details in a bank-compatible ICL (Image Cash Letter) format for transmission to banks. The solution also creates a processed electronic index file of the payments received for internal cash application. This omits the need to key-in payment data by the analysts into a spreadsheet. Step 3. Real-time cash application

  1. †The received electronic index file of the payments gets auto-matched with the scanned remittance information
  2. The open A/R invoice details get pulled from the supplier?s ERP system
  3. The payment details are individually linked with the line-items in the open A/R
  4. Cash gets auto-posted in the ERP

All of this happens entirely straight-through without the need for any manual intervention. Scanning of Checks and Remittances with RDC

    • Costs required for resources just for keying-in data
    • Transportation and manual handling costs

Compatibility: Since RDC 2.0 solutions rely on the integration of regular RDC scanners with Artificial Intelligence-enabled cash application solutions, they are inherently compatible with most popular RDC scanners available on the market, including the one on your desk.
