I'm looking for a software package or process to take 1000 or so paper checks and harvest the contact details, and if possible the date and amount - and add that to a sortable list like CSV or excel.
I don't need to capture any of the micr data, account numbers, routing numbers, or siganture.
This isn't to process checks for payment, only for who wrote a check for how much and when, in a list.
The checks can be either scanned in at the time, or they can be processed in batch from a directory of JPG images or PDF's
Ideally we'd like to see if there's something no cost, or low cost as this will only be done maybe once per year... so buying 'neat receipts' or the like is probably not cost effective.
What are some ideas that fit the task?
