All My Papers CAR/LAR SDK

The All My Papers Courtesy Amount Recognition & Legal Amount Recognition (CAR/LAR) Software Development Kit (CAR/LAR SDK) is a High Level Programming System for Windows™ application development consisting of Dynamic Linked Libraries (DLLs), associated import libraries, header files and example source code.


Courtesy Amount Recognition (CAR/LAR) is the process by which software recognition engines read the numeric and written values on a check or other payment document automatically so that operators do not have to key in most of the data.

The SDK is compatible with .NET programming environments. With our CAR/LAR SDK, you save significant time and gain maximum flexibility to customize solutions because AMP already has done the complex, low-level programming.  Using a local CAR/LAR Windows Service and a cloud-based CAR/LAR recognition server, installation and deployment is fast and easy and requires very little in the way of local infrastructure.

A simple local file based protocol means that implanting CAR/LAR services is as easy as placing check images in a local input directory, calling the CAR service and retrieving the results from a comma-delimited file in the local output directory.

The All My Papers CAR/LAR SDK lets you add Courtesy Amount Recognition (CAR/LAR) to your check 21 or Image Cash Letter application. SDK features include:

  • Finds the courtesy amount on any exchange-ready (TIF formatted) check image
  • Returns both the dollar amount of the check and a read confidence score
  • Calls CAR services from an All My Papers operated Cloud-Based server to minimize local infrastructure requirements
  • Check images are encrypted using (encryption standard) prior to upload to the cloud • Check images are never written to disk by the cloud server
  • High read rate accuracy
  • Fast recognition and data extraction – end-to-end recognition time is typically xxx MS with server capacity ranging to xx images per second and beyond.
