The need for a cost-effective method for handling, processing, storing, and retrieving transaction documents combined with the availability of hardware and software technologies capable of satisfying this need are the basis for the High Performance Transaction System discussed in this paper. The particular transactions that are the subject of this paper are bank checks, the volumes surpassing 50 billion per year and continuing to grow. Other transactions might be the handling of such documents as bill remittances, tax documents, mail-order forms, census forms, and many other similar applications. This paper discusses the system design, hardware and software architectures, and performance of the ImagePlus™ High Performance Transaction System.
