Meet the team who can deliver lasting benefits to your organisation


Established in 2003, Solchar foresaw the global rollout of image clearing systems before it started. Since then Solchar has grown organically, created the reference Cheque Imaging Platform and emerged as the UK market leader in Cheque scanning and Scalable Imaging Solutions.
Based near Reading we operate across the UK with 400 clients who use our Transaction Journal solution. Transaction Journal is a package that combines unique proprietary software in combination with the world’s leading cheque scanning brands to capture and process cheques and personalised transactional documents.
Solchar brings to the market a unique understanding of payment processing together with imaging technology to deliver lasting and profitable benefits to our customers by leading the industry through the forthcoming introduction of the new Image Clearing System.
