BancTec Completes Effort For Austin Diocese

Dallas-based BancTec, a provider of document and payment processing services, said today that the firm has recently completed an effort to digitize the entire collection of sacramental records from the Diocese of Austin, the Catholic Church of Central Texas. The firm said that the effort lasted approximately one year, and is a part of an initiative of the church launched after the devastation of Hurrican Katrina. Financial impact of the customer engagement was not disclosed. Banctec microfilmed and imaged all of the Austin Diocese's records at its Austin facility and also through a mobile scanning effort.
