Transaction Journal 2 (TJ2) is a low cost, easy to use teller or corporate user application that captures cheque images and data of items in a balanced transaction set. Once the application is started, it automatically recognises the image capture device and is then held in a wait state until a cheque is introduced to the feeder. The image capture device pulls the cheque through, captures an image and reads the code line. The system then allows the user to type in the amount of the cheque and then waits for the next cheque to be inserted. When all of the cheques for a batch are complete, the total is shown which needs to balance with the credit item that will confirm the transaction is complete. At this stage the save button is clicked and the information captured is available to be printed in image or bank report form. The system can capture multiple batches each needing to be completed with a credit.
Transaction sets are balanced by the system and any out of balance sets cannot be processed until they have balanced. The system allows for multiple transaction sets and allows only transaction sets to balance with a credit.
Transaction Journal 2 (TJ2) provides a micro Image Archive and All Items Database for all transactions sets processed on a particular workstation. Transaction sets from each batch on a chosen day can be recalled and reprinted with and without images. This means if an envelope of cheques or an individual item is lost, they can be provided to the bank simply by recalling and printing.
If the organisation using the system has queries regarding any of the cheques stored in the system, they can simply click on the required date find the item and display or reprint it. This also means that any requests for items from authorities such as research for the \'Proceeds of Crime Act\' can be instantly recalled and presented affording full compliance.
Transaction Journal 2 has a full disaster recovery facility as all transactions can be saved to CD on a regular basis to ensure no loss of data.
