ACHeck21™ Speeds Back-office Check Processing for Houston's Glazier Foods

Enabling technology allows company to increase the speed and accuracy of processing paper checks.

ACHeck21™, an industry-leading Check 21-compliant system for converting paper checks into digital financial transactions, is making daily accounting a lot easier for Houston-based Glazier Foods.

Glazier, a regional institutional food service distributor with customers throughout Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, deployed ACHeck21 in June 2007 with the goal of increasing speed and accuracy in accounting for the checks it receives on a daily basis. Glazier employed the services of Houston-based ACH Business Services LP, an innovative financial services consulting company, to ensure that the back-office transition went smoothly.

Glazier uses ACHeck21 to capture check images, correct and verify discrepancies and make deposits. ACHeck21 allows Glazier to automatically apply customer payments from the data captured from paper checks in its accounts receivable database, a process that previously was performed manually.

"Where Glazier once had four employees posting customer payments to accounts, using this back-office process, the company now handles it with a single worker," said Joe Connors of ACH Business Services, who helped install the system.

"The technology has worked flawlessly," said John Miller, Vice President of Finance at Glazier. "Because it's been so successful, we're planning for a broader implementation in other parts of Glazier's operations."

ACHeck21 is ideal for banks, credit unions, distributors, merchants, utilities, local governments, non-profit agencies and small businesses - anyone who accepts checks for payment. With ACHeck21 - fully compliant with both ACH guidelines and Check 21 regulations - organizations can create electronic files for automatic transfer into their bank account.

ACHeck21 is distinguished in the marketplace in that it provides more than remote deposit. It makes possible automated, intelligent decision-making between ACH and Check 21. It integrates into existing accounting applications and offers robust archival and retrieval features for internal workflow enhancements.

"Glazier Foods is a perfect demonstration of the advantages ACHeck21 offers in the marketplace," said Sam Ackley, managing partner for ACHeck21. "Glazier has automated what was once a very labor-intensive, manual process and has realized efficiencies at multiple levels of their organization."
