How the C21 System Works

C21 Forward can run on each teller station or in branch mode. In teller-mode, tellers scan, balance, and screen checks for potential fraud at the time of transaction. In branch-mode, tellers scan and balance their checks in batches. C21 Forward uses world-class OCR software. Tellers are prompted to review and possibly fix any discrepancies. C21 Forward integrates with nationwide fraud detection databases to identify known fraudulent checks. After screening and balancing checks, the teller archives them and their metadata in the ECM repository. C21 Forward uses archived checks to generate reports to verify core system totals against deposited checks. An ICL file is generated from balanced archived checks. This ICL is then sent to the FRB or other clearinghouse. C21 Forward can also automatically import checks deposited through ATMs, Mobile Devices (RDC), or merchant locations to be in regular ICL submissions.
