Effective October 1, 2011, Harland Clarke has launched a program providing credit unions with a deep discount when they elect to have the default shipping method be CheckProtect, a faster, secure and trackable delivery service for checks.

Protecting so much more than checks

Checks represent much more than paper. They include personal and financial information and, therefore, deserve to be handled with care during the mailing process. With fraud and identity theft on the rise, security is top-of-mind for today’s consumers. CheckProtect, a secure and trackable delivery method from Harland Clarke, is an economical way to provide this security.

benefits for your credit union include:

  • Better member satisfaction: Secure and trackable delivery reduces unnecessary member dissatisfaction due to uncertainty about the delivery status of check orders.
  • Reduced costs: The built-in security features with CheckProtect help decrease the risks and costs associated with fraud and identity theft.
  • Improved efficiency:  Email captures and notifications keep members informed of delivery status, thus reducing the burden on your staff and providing you with valuable member information.

Benefits for your members include:

  • Expedited delivery:  Compared to standard bulk delivery, checks will arrive 2-3 days sooner for members.
  • Trackable shipping: At virtually any point in the delivery process, Harland Clarke can track orders, providing members with valuable peace of mind in knowing that their checks are safely on the way.
  • Enhanced security packaging: Check boxes are shipped in an exclusive, tamper-evident, poly-wrap bag, disguising the contents and reducing the risk of theft.
