Having a dedicated check printer allows you to keep the MICR toner and check stock loaded, so you don’t have to remember to change them before a check run. By adding additional trays to the printer, you can even utilize different colored check stock. This makes it easy to differentiate between AP and Payroll checks, or you may use a different color for each company.
Intersoft Systems recommends HP LaserJet Pro series printers to work with the INTERAC accounting suite. There are multiple models for which the MICR toner required for check printing is readily available. Before you select a check printer, be sure that MICR toner is available. The Troy Group is an excellent source for MICR toner.
Taking full advantage of the automation options in the INTERAC Laser Check package will allow you to streamline the check writing process.
• Print the company name and address
• Print the company logo
• Print the bank information and routing numbers (MICR line)
• Print the signature
The time saved by having a check printer always ready may be reason enough, but when you add to that the savings from not having to purchase pre-printed checks will more than offset the investment in a dedicated check printer. The convenience of not having to remember to change the toner, insert the check stock, or rerun the checks when you forget make this a smart choice. If your accounting system doesn’t offer these options, or you aren’t taking advantage of them, we are here to help.
