Recommended Scanners

Organizations which receive remittance items whose size can be as long as 8 1/2 x 14 can utilize the Smartsource Adaptive scanner. The scanner supports full page document scanner but is, in fact a check scanner with the ability to extract MICR data in bitonal and grayscale. More details can be found here:

Drivers and Services

In addition to driver installation, end-users using the Check Scanning App must also download and install Ranger Remote, a windows service which allows browsers to communicate with check scanning hardware. Both the check scanning drivers and Ranger Remote are, in many cases, the same drivers shipped by the manufacturers themselves. As such, drivers and services adhere to the highest security protocols.

Driver and Ranger Remote Downloads

The URL's for the two most popular drivers in addition to the Ranger Remote solution are listed below. For all other drivers, please contact your Account Manager or Sales Representative.

Important Notes

Please note that if installing the check scanning drivers on a PC which is currently being utilized for scanning with other third party solutions (i.e. bank-based scanning), Check21.com cannot guarantee that such solution will continue to function.

Default Field and Value: JpegTiffWrapped=true
Required Change: JpegTiffWrapped=false

If scanning remittance items and experiencing barcode scanning failures - due to quality of scan, the following settings must be made.

Default Field and Value: JpegQuality=75
