X9 QUALIFIER Application
All My Papers X9 QUALIFIER products are available as either a Windows .NET-based application or as an SDK. X9 QUALIFIER verifies the image component of an X9/ICL file.
X9 QUALIFIER functions:
- Test and Correct MICR Mis-Match
- Test Conformance to X9.100-181 standard
- Test and Correct TIFF tags
- Perform Image Quality Assurance (IQA)
- Detect and Report whether a check image is an Electronic Created Item (ECI) or scanned
A check image cash letter (ICL/X9) contains two types of data
- Textual data describing the electronic contents
- Image data - the electronic pictorial depiction of the check image
Both data types must conform the ICL/X9 standard for efficient clearing through the check exchange system. X9 QUALIFER ensures the image data conforms to the exchange standards
Benefits)with regard to TIFF image and MICR quality assurance.
- Test and Correct to ensure TIFF tags conform to X9.100-181 conformance
- Make certain that X9.100.187 and Universal Companion Document conformance minimum Image quality levels are met
- Verify that the MICR data on the check matches the data in the records and fields of the ICL/X9.37/UCD file and optionally make corrections as necessary
- Validate that the ICL/X9.37/UCD file balances with regard to item and dollar totals
X9 QUALIFIER will test ICL files for
- MICR mismatch errors Image quality issues
- Balancing and general ICL formatting issues
- Conformance to new X9.100-180 Tough TIFF Standard
- Conformance to check image exchanges tougher testing for check images
X9 QUALIFIER can ensure error-free inter-operation with your exchange partners.
- Test and provide detail reports of TIFF tag conformance
- Test and report essential image quality assurance metrics
- Compare and validate MICR data to check images

General Licensing Terms
In general. the licensing policy for All My Papers (AMP) software – authorizes one user and one physical hardware device/computer. The AMP enabling license for a given machine authorizes only that single physical hardware computer.
AMP’s software requires license and product codes for every computer running AMP’s software including production, evaluation, disaster recovery and trial computers. License fees include support and maintenance for a three-year renewable term.
Virtual Machine (VM) Licensing
The All My Paper VM license enables use of AMP applications in one VM environment and is available to new and existing customers. AMP includes support for VM environments with static UUIDs such as VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V. However, installation or configuration support under other VM environments without static UUIDs such as Amazon’s Could Server may be subject to additional installation/configuration support charges.
For details, see the License text loaded during the installation of the software.
AMP’s applications issues license and product codes for every computer running AMP’s software.
For details, see the License text loaded during the installation of the software.
Workstation licensing for products such as X9 VIEWER or X9 QUALIFIER
All My Papers has evolved various and flexible licensing models for the deployment of the X9 VIEWER and X9 QUALIFIER applications to meet customer demand and requirements.
Because check image cash letter (ICL) files contain sensitive financial data, organizations may want to restrict some users to viewing only and permit other users to edit the check ICL file data. Access to editing may be controlled on a workstation license basis.
Organizations that use Remote Terminal Services (E.g. Remote Desktop, Citrix, etc) can install both the application and the license manager on a Remote Terminal Services server to conveniently provide functionality at any workstation from two to 62 users at a time limited only by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.
Similar to Server Licensing described above but used when AMP applications are installed locally on workstations and licensing is provided from a server. Distributed licensing provides functionality for up to 62 users at a time limited by the number of distributed user licenses purchased.
X9 VIEWER & X9 Qualifier Licensing and Deployment Models
All My Papers has evolved various and flexible licensing models for the deployment of the X9 VIEWER application to meet customer demand and requirements.
X9 VIEWER are Windows-based applications for the viewing, analysis and editing of check Image Cash Letter (ICL/UCD/187/X9.37) files.
Because check image cash letters contain sensitive financial data, organizations may want to restrict some users to viewing only and permit others users to edit the check ICL file data. Access to editing and data entry functions may be controlled on a workstation license basis.
ICL file size can approach the 2GB limit and contain over 40,000 check items and images. The X9 Viewer can efficiently access files located on other network resources but is most efficient if the ICL file is on the same hard disk as the application.
Desktop Workstation License
X9 Viewer can be purchased and installed on individual desktop workstations. This is the standard license.
Organizations that use Remote Terminal Services (E.g. Remote Desktop, Citrix) can install both the VIEWER and the license manager on a Remote Terminal Services server to conveniently provide Viewing or Viewing/Editing at any workstation from one to 62 users at a time limited only by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.
Similar to Server Licensing described above but used when AMP applications are installed locally on workstations and licensing is provided from a server. Provides Viewing or Viewing/Editing at any workstation for up to 62 users at a time limited by the number of concurrent user licenses purchased.
This white paper is for anyone contemplating working with or implementing a system that will process Image Cash Letters (ICLs), AKA X9.37 files, and would like to reduce their implementation costs, time, and ongoing maintenance efforts.
This white paper discusses the issue of data errors made during the check truncation and exchange process and the privacy and operational risks this creates to the financial institutions involved in Check 21 check clearing
