Cheque Processing System - CPS™
Cheque Validation System - CPS/Validator
Cheque Validation System -  CPS/Validator™ is a system for validating  the form, the layout and the code line printing quality of bank and private  cheques.
  
Hellenic Bank Association - HBA  and European Central Bank have issued specifications on the form, the  layout and the code line printing quality of cheques that are drown in EURO - €  currency.
Operations departments of banks that  permit qualified customers to print in house their own private cheques using  account numbers and cheque numbers given by the bank, can use CPS/Validator in order to  validate the compliance of these cheques with HBA, ECB and  Euro-cheque specifications.
  
The system can be use also in cases  where the bank has outsourced cheque book printing to a printing house.  In this case the bank will use the system for sampling check over the printing  house production.
The system consists of a document  scanner and the accompanied software application.

CPS/Validator  is validating:
