What Is Document Imaging Software?
Document imaging software organizes, stores, and retrieves documents. The data managed by a document imaging system could reside on an in-house or cloud-based server. Document imaging software is widely used by a variety of industries, such as legal, healthcare, education, and, of course, banking.
Document Imaging in Banking
Three common document imaging use cases exist in banking: cold storage, customer and account document management, and operational document management.
Bank core systems typically offer built-in “cold storage” solutions. Banks use cold storage applications to store the following types of information:
- Loan trial balances
- Daily balancing reports
- Non-post reports
- Daily report of accounts opened
- Daily report of accounts closed
- Non-accrual loan reports
- Past-due loan reports
Customer & Account Documents
Financial institutions also use document imaging software, such as AccuAccount, to manage customer and account documents. Customer financial documents, tax returns, loan agreements, and trust documents are just a few of the types of documents that banks store and manage in imaging systems.
In addition, a system like AccuDoc can be used as a digital document archive for accounts receivables, accounts payables, policies, procedures, and compliance teams.
