Digital Check to Present RDC Leadership Seminar Series’: Cairo
Digital Check Corp , a worldwide leader in cheque scanning equipment and UV capture for the banking industry, will hold an educational seminar on March 9 in Cairo for bankers, regulators, and payments-industry executives interested in learning about Check Truncation and Remote Deposit Capture (RDC). The event will take place at the Four Seasons and cover basic to advanced topics for financial institutions planning to implement electronic cheque clearance.
The seminar represents Digital Check’s first public event on the African continent, as well as an early look at remote deposit in the Middle East and North Africa region, where many countries have undertaken modernization of their banking systems as part of the Arab Payments Initiative (API) begun in 2005.
‘The majority of countries in the MENA region have begun or have already completed a migration to electronic payments and settlement, including cheque truncation,’ says Alex Trombetta, Digital Check’s vice president of international sales. ‘Many are looking into further extensions of the latest technology, and have the means to do so. We expect that education on remote deposit will help jump-start an important part of that modern payments experience.’
Topics covered in the seminar include general remote deposit trends, business cases and best practices; capturing and processing ultraviolet security features on checks and payment documents; and hardware solutions for scanning cheques.
As a component of the RDC Leadership Initiative’, Digital Check has been hosting educational seminars about remote deposit capture around the globe since 2012. This year’s series includes events planned in Brazil, Peru, London, Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore and Manila.
