Parascript and Jara Diversified Services mark eight years of working together to respond to Check 21 goals, leave major impact on industry

Parascript has helped JDS meet the demands of Check 21 and in so doing, has helped make history in the check processing industry. Parascript has been a responsive provider of quality software in the Check 21 industry, and we look forward to many more years of success with them as our business partner

Parascript, LLC, the image analysis and pattern recognition technology provider, and Jara Diversified Services (JDS), the manufacturer of Check 21 software for remote deposit, branch capture, and remittance processing, today announced the success of their collaboration to enable remote deposit capture. Using Parascript's technology, JDS played a role in clearing some of the first Check 21 items on October 28, 2004, the first day Check 21 was available.

The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (Check 21), enacted into law October 28, 2003, allows the recipient of an original paper check to create a digital version of it, thereby eliminating the need for further handling of the physical document. With the enactment, requirements to physically sort, transfer, and file hard copies of checks are no longer necessary, saving financial institutions time and money.

"Parascript has helped JDS meet the demands of Check 21 and in so doing, has helped make history in the check processing industry. Parascript has been a responsive provider of quality software in the Check 21 industry, and we look forward to many more years of success with them as our business partner," said Steve Jara, owner of Jara Diversified Services.

To date, JDS and Parascript have converted many clients to Check 21 processing, and, more importantly, have assisted and inspired many others to do the same. JDS currently has 124 financial institutions and 100 corporations using the integrated solution. Among those using it are banks, savings and loans institutions, and credit unions.

JDS relies on Parascript's CheckPlus to read information from checks and other documents. CheckPlus automatically processes the full stream of documents for proof-of-deposit (POD) and remittance applications, and automates check and legal amount recognition (CAR/LAR) with higher read rates and accuracy.

"Parascript is pleased to work with industry leaders such as JDS, one of our first Check 21 partners, to not only meet, but exceed industry standards," said Mike Fenton, vice president of sales and operations for Parascript. "We have come a long way since Check 21 was enacted and are proud to have forged the way for others in the process."
