Relyco Partners With DSS to Develop Industry's First "Super Check" Offering Maximum Fraud Prevention

PROCHEK+PLUS™ Line of Blank Laser Check Stock Delivers 16 Fraud-Preventing Security Features Including Advanced Securatek™ Copy Prevention Technology

DOVER, NH--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - Relyco®, a leading provider of value-added business printing and payment solutions, today announced its partnership with DSS (Document Security Systems, Inc.), a leader in customized document protection solutions, and the launch of PROCHEK+PLUS™, the industry's first "Super Check." PROCHECK+PLUS is the most secure blank laser check stock available featuring 16 fraud deterring security features, including Securatek™ Copy Prevention Technology, the newest development in check security.

As an active member of the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) ASC X9.B check processing subcommittee, Relyco is an innovative leader in check fraud prevention strategies and an expert source for organizations printing checks in-house.

"Even as more financial transactions move to electronic processes, paper-based checks are still a big part of how we conduct business and make payments. As a result, there continues to be check fraud that leads to significant financial losses," said Mike Steinberg, president of Relyco. "We help companies prevent check fraud by delivering high quality and exceptionally secure check stock that is very difficult to tamper with. Our check security expertise as an ANSI member and partnership with DSS enables us to develop innovative products such as PROCHEK+PLUS to help keep our customers safe from fraud."

Relyco's most advanced and secure "super check," PROCHECK+PLUS, is the first of many solutions Relyco and DSS are working on. Together, this new partnership will coordinate the joint creation of homeland defense solutions for governments around the world, protection solutions for large manufacturers, prescription and vital record security for healthcare organizations, transcript and diploma protection for academic institutions, as well as anti-counterfeiting solutions for financial institutions. As partners, Relyco and DSS have the combined expertise and experience to develop the best solutions for any security requirement.

"Before Relyco chose DSS for its PROCHEK+PLUS, the company tested many other security papers from different vendors," said Jason Grady, vice president of sales and marketing at DSS. "Ultimately, Relyco decided to partner with us because we met their high standard for quality and security requirements, which enabled them to produce a superior laser check."

PROCHEK+PLUS is part of Relyco's full portfolio of secure, premium business laser checks. The new Securatek feature makes the reproduction of protected documents virtually impossible on a digital color copier. In addition to its many other security features including Enhanced Toner Adhesion, Covert Fluorescent Fibers, and Solvent-Reactive Color Spotting, PROCHEK+PLUS also offers DSS's AuthentiGuard® Pantograph 4000™ -- making the "cut-and-paste" check altering method a thing of the past. Other unique features include:

  • Coin-reactive paper with an invisible layer that changes color when scratched with a coin
  • Thermochromatic heat-reactive ink causes the words "Original Document" to disappear when heat is applied
  • Copy-void safety feature in the Endorsement Backer helps prevent copying of signatures
  • Simulated Watermark is only visible at 45 degree angle and cannot be easily photocopied or scanned

Additionally, Relyco offers affordable, turnkey in-house check printing solutions with MICR laser check printers starting at the lowest entry point of $450. Other products include MICR laser toner, check printing and signing software, online paystub and W-2 software, secure envelopes, ULTRASEAL® pressure seal check stock, and post-processing and pressure seal equipment.
