They are deployed in such consumer-facing environments as retail point of sale, bank teller lanes and in general back-office operations which are taking advantage of efficiencies gained from the federal Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act known as Check 21 that removed barriers to electronic check processing. Ranger allows clients to use virtually any item or check processing software with any check scanning hardware.
