Cheque Truncation System

Digitize cheque clearing and deliver efficiency and scalability with Newgen's Cheque Image Clearing System (CICS).


Our Cheque Image Clearing System (CICS) or Cheque Truncation System (CTS) reduces the time taken to clear cheques by converting physical cheques into high quality images very early on in the process. Our Cheque Truncation System is a web-based solution, which can be accessed by banks’ personnel from any machine in the bank’s network. The cheque image is truncated at the presenting bank and seamlessly moves through various steps in the cheque-clearing cycle. Leveraging Newgen’s advanced imaging capabilities and internationally acclaimed BPM platform, the solution enables better customer services and enhanced operational efficiency for banks by cutting down on the overheads involved in physical clearing. It also leads to better reconciliation and prevention of fraud.
