AiArmy & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs
4/12/2010 - EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The check "float" at the base exchange is going the way of rotary phones and dot matrix printers as the Army & Air Force Exchange Service converts to a paper check conversion system this month.
"PCC scans and instantly converts paper checks into electronic debits to the check writer's account," said Billy Hullender, BX manager. "This technology has been operational in contingency locations for roughly ten years now and commercial industry for about five; it's an extremely efficient system."
Rollout of the PCC program will begin at Eglin locations in mid-April and will be completely implemented in all facilities by June 6.
