General Payments Systems has developed a software and hardware system that will allow its government agency clients to automate the collection of payments by check.

The technology, which has just emerged from beta, also allows agencies to dispense change on cash payments through kiosks in location. The system has been integrated with the services of a top-five bank — which General Payments did not disclose — and can work with other banks as well, the company said.

"This is a truly transformative system upgrade for General Payment Systems," said Ronald Hodge, CEO of General Payment Systems, in a Sept. 30 press release. "Acceptance of checks will be a tremendous technology asset for our governmental partners as they increase ways in which they can accept fee generating payments."

General Payment Systems provides government agencies with proprietary hardware (kiosks) and cloud based software systems that automate the process of collecting payments from the general public (cash, debit and credit). These systems deliver payment acceptance, real-time accounting and payment risk-mitigation services. The company distributes these technologies through direct sales, channel partners, and various licensed entities.
