Parascript Announces Partnership with Bull to Help Brazilian Banks Improve Automation and Fraud Detection, Exhibit at CIAB

June 4, 2014, LONGMONT, Colo. – Parascript ®, LLC, a leading document capture company, is today announcing a partnership with Paris-based technology integrator Bull, along with new advances to its CheckPlus® technology that will help banks increase accuracy and fraud detection on Brazilian checks. Parascript will showcase its technology alongside Bull in its booth (E13) this week at CIAB FEBRABAN, a leading, international event for the financial sector and technology in Brazil.

“Bull is a highly recognized and leading system integrator for banks and insurance companies in Brazil,” said Alain Navarro, Parascript’s Director of Sales, EMEA & Latin America. “We see this as a huge opportunity for both of our companies to leverage Parascript’s leading recognition technology to bring advances in fraud detection and check processing technology to the international financial industry.”

Parascript’s CheckPlus International software enables companies to read and convert printed and handwritten checks into a file called CEL 604/614 (income and outcome clearing), an electronic format that enables fund transfers. Improved Formalistics technology helps banks to increase fraud detection and processing accuracy, and ensures check usability by rejecting those documents that are not valid or usable earlier in the process. The technology automatically determines the presence of key fields, including: signatures on the front, payee name, date, and Courtesy Amount (CAR) and Legal Amount (LAR) on any types of check. Specifically it detects mismatches in check amounts that are written numerically or spelled out in these corresponding fields. In determining any mismatches in CAR/LAR the technology helps banks and others to detect alteration or counterfeit possibilities and helps to safeguard against possible fraud.

Bull specializes in working with companies to manage high-performance systems and end-to-end security solutions. It also helps organizations to efficiently process data at their disposal, converting data into value for organizations in a completely secure manner and creating new types of demand.

“At Bull, we are committed to seeking out best-of-breed solutions in order to gain and implement projects quickly while providing a high ROI to our customers,” said Anderson de Oliveira.  “We decided to go with Parascript because the company offers a comprehensive solution and is responsive to our, and the industry’s needs.  We look forward to working with CheckPlus check processing software and to offering added flexibility, check processing speed and fraud protection sophistication at leading Brazilian banks.”
