Panini’s Vision neXt™ Certified by Acuant

Panini, a global payments technology provider, is pleased to announce the latest certification of its Vision neXt check scanner with Acuant to work with their AcuFill Auto-Fill Software and AssureID Verification Software. Panini is proud to be the first select check scanner manufacturer certified with AssureID.

Increasing regulations and competition highlight the need for Financial Institutions to set themselves apart from the crowd. Regulations such as Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Customer Identification Program (CIP), and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) all lead to customer-related data collection, and Acuant is the trusted identity management solution for many FIs. The certification of the Vision neXt with AcuFill improves teller efficiency by reducing keystrokes and auto-populating the teller’s system with customer data, while AssureID verifies the authenticity of driver’s licenses and ID cards, reducing fraud.

“The certification of Acuant’s AcuFill and AssureID is further evidence of the commitment to document processing efficiency that has come to define Panini throughout its storied history. Being the first check scanner certified on both platforms is a terrific accomplishment and exemplifies why Panini sets the standard for teller image capture,” said Joe Sciulli, Senior VP Channel Sales at Panini.

“We are pleased to provide Panini with a range of identity solutions that will support the seamless capture and verification of critical customer data for a user friendly experience,” said Bruce Ackerman, Executive VP of Global Sales for Acuant. “We are confident that our solutions will help Panini protect against theft and identity fraud while complying with current regulations and best practices.”

The Panini Vision neXt is conquering the FI teller space as a branch transformation platform, rather than just a scanning device, providing rich functionality in the domains of check capture, ID capture, and smart printing, optimized ergonomics, price/performance leadership, and demonstrable savings, backed by Panini’s world-class service and support capabilities. Users have the ability to scan at 100 or 160 documents per minute, better supporting Financial Institutions increasingly prevalent choice to handle and balance check deposit at the teller regardless of the size of the document batch (“scan-all”). Panini’s patented Advanced Auto-Alignment mechanism on the Vision neXt’s auto-feeder makes manual document jogging virtually unnecessary, by aligning even different format checks vertically and horizontally one by one as they are being fed. This leads to higher MICR read rates, better images due to skew correction, prevention of double feeds, and fewer jams, while Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection tackles one of the most disruptive events in check processing, by blocking real doubles more effectively than via the light reduction systems used on most earlier generation scanners, as well as avoiding false positives which interrupt the capture flow when darker or thicker documents are processed on such transports.
