Check Solutions

Our check solutions help you minimize losses and maximize your capital.

Managing check payments—and handling all the reconciliation, tracking and archiving that it requires—can be time-consuming, cumbersome and costly. SunTrust offers several check solutions to help you streamline processing, optimize cash and avoid fraud.

Account Reconciliation
Timely reconciliation helps you identify errors quickly and minimizes losses due to fraud or theft. Account Reconciliation from SunTrust gives you an easy way to automate the process. Our service matches and balances your account data, checking for errors and possible fraud, while freeing your staff to focus on more meaningful tasks.

Controlled Disbursement
More effectively manage daily cash flow and maximize working capital with our controlled disbursement service. You’ll receive early, same-day reporting of all checks that are presented for payment. Armed with this information, you and your staff will know how much money to transfer to your disbursement account, allowing you to avoid overdrafts and keep excess funds invested.

Image Delivery Services
Save on storage fees for cancelled paper checks and easily retrieve archived items. Our Image Delivery service transfers and indexes high-quality images of the front and back of all your checks onto easily searchable CD-ROMs, giving you and your staff fast access to archived checks.

Enterprise Payment Processing®
The tasks of printing, stuffing and mailing checks can be tedious and time-consuming. We can manage the job of processing accounts payable and employee payroll for you. You’ll save money on printing, postage and other check-processing costs—and free up your staff for other assignments. We can also handle expense reimbursements, rebates and dividend payments—as well as your electronic ACH payments. And we will assist you with reconciling data files between your accounting and systems areas.
