The Application

The InterLaser Secure Laser Cheque Solution is an interface application that provides the ability to produce and electronically sign cheques from a blank, coloured, perforated cheque paper stock. It also provides the ability to produce different forms, such as invoices & statements, from plain white paper stock.


The InterLaser Solution streamlines the entire cheque production process by automating many of the steps required with impact printer solutions. Even though blank cheque paper stock is used, cheques with a professional image are created in a single pass on a M.I.C.R. laser printer. The InterLaser Solution handles signatures, logos, M.I.C.R. fonts, company & banking information, the cheque stub portion, Full Page Stub Overflow, duplicate copies and redirection of duplicate copies.

By using current high-speed laser printers in conjunction with the InterLaser Solution, laser cheque production is completed in less time with fewer people.

Flexibility & Control

The InterLaser Solution features the flexibility to add or modify an unlimited number of companies, set up new bank accounts and change banking information - e.g., address change - in minutes, without costly delays waiting for the new cheque paper stock to arrive. Security controls enable the master user to assign regular user passwords that control access to the various features of the InterLaser Solution. Cheque copies are sorted and directed to local or network printers to give the flexibility where needed in the most efficient manner.
