Strict rules for electronic check (cheque) depositing have built the need to properly destroy your checks and other valuable documents. Rather than leave this process to chance, Aqubanc first surveyed our hardware partners about who makes the most reliable, trouble-free shredder: all recommended MBM. The DestroyIT Cross-Cutis the first choice to shred checks while complying with the bank recommended 14-day destruction requirement for Check 21 transactions. Aqubanc has deployed MBM into City Rescue Mission, Love A Child and Miami Rescue Mission where peace of mind comes with cross-cutting heads backed by a 10-year MBM warranty.


The OPEX 51 Rapid Extraction Desk or Omation Mill Cutting Slicers can provide nonprofits and charitable organizations with significant operating efficiency. One operator can open and immediately Like-Type sort the contents of each envelope at 400 to 800 gifts transactions per hour. Like-Type sorting eliminates the need to sort by campaign or appeal. Aqubanc with our exclusive partner, American Financial Technologies, has provided refurbished and certified for OPEX on-site maintenance OPEX Omation and OPEX 51 Rapid Extraction Desk. By delivering refurbished products, Aqubanc helps nonprofits and charitable organizations to better steward your precious resources without losing the benefits these devices. Love A Child and New York City Rescue Mission are just some of the Aqubanc clients already benefiting from refurbished OPEX products.

Shear Tech

The best and easiest method to improve throughput through the Canon CR-Series and Digital Check TS230 / TS240 check image scanners is to jog a stack of checks and Reply Devices. Jogging does two things: it removes static electricity that may be holding checks and Reply Devices to each other, and, it aligns the leading edges of the entire stack of work to be imaged - taken together this further reduces the possibility of jams or double-feeds in the Auto Feeder. Aqubanc's research revealed the MJ-1000 by Shear Tech as one of the smallest, table-top, automatic jogger with an outstanding record. Aqubanc requires one MJ-1000 for every check scanner with an automatic feeder.

Posting to fundraising, constituent relationship management and donor tracking software (fundraising / CRM) has very unique and discreet requirements. You can't just upload a simple comma-delimited CSV file because data changes, not year-to-year, rather appeal-to-appeal or even within multiple appeals. Once seemingly similar Response Forms are printed the results may vary wildly: by printer, in the size or font of OCR, by barcode, layout and most important for what you are asking for. Until recently creating a standard interface for the key fundraising / CRM was a frustrating exercise. 2500M is the first set of products to create standard methodologies: Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge, DonorPerfect, SofTrek PledgeMaker and Clearview, Talisma, Bloomerang, Bernard Data Solutions, Donor.com, Donor Direct, Orange Leap and Abila.
