  19. 19. Highlights of lockbox banking  Lockbox processing is a cash management service provided by banks to their corporate customers. Lockbox services are designed to accelerate the collection and deposit of check payments, sent with accompanying remittance document(s), through the mail.  Lockbox services are provided almost exclusively by large banks. Of a total of 4.1 billion checks processed by U.S. banks in lockbox operations in 1994, 75 percent were processed by banks with over $5 billion in assets, and over 98 percent were processed by banks with over $1 billion in assets.  Retail lockbox tends to involve higher processing volumes than wholesale lockbox. The leading retail lockbox bank processes about 27 million items per month, while the leading wholesale lockbox bank processes only about 4 million items per month.
  20. 20. Few more numbers  The primary cost component of lockbox processing is the per item fee. For wholesale lockboxes, the per item fee might range from $.50 to $1.00. For retail lockboxes, the per item fee might range from $.15 to $.30 for matched items (i.e., one coupon and one check with matching dollar amounts).
  21. 21. Numbers Contd… The per item fee for retail lockbox items is increased for:  Multiples (i.e., one coupon with more than one check or the reverse),  Mismatched items (i.e., coupon and check amounts do not match),  Check only (i.e., no coupon), and  Reject items (e.g., coupon only with no check).

The one fund Boston turn tragedy into triumph (Bank success in Lock Box)  The bank team cleared a backlog of 10,000 pieces of mail just 36 hours after going live,” Gandolfo says. “We centralized all cash and check donations and captured envelope images to track donor addresses, which makes it possible to communicate with them in the future.”
