Seraphim provides software as a subscription service. That service can be experienced in an optimal way by using technology that is modern. That doesn’t mean you need a brand new computer, but if you are using a ten-year-old computer, then your experience will not be optimal. Any computer purchased in the last five years will likely be a good experience. The one factor that impacts the experience of Seraphim more than any other is screen resolution.
While we do our very best to adapt Seraphim to many kinds of resolutions, we recommend the best experience at 1920×1080 (commonly referred to as 1080p). This is the common standard of nearly any computer sold today (both desktop and laptop).
For computers that are largely running back-office tasks, we recommend 1920×1080 (1080p).

Seraphim Teller Recommended Equipment
The Seraphim Teller Software currently runs on any computer that runs a full version of Windows 8.1 or higher. The following scanner (Canon CR-50) is currently the only scanner Seraphim Supports.
$525 - $575
That being said though, Seraphim Teller interacts with an external check processor. This external system integrates with several check scanners. Theoretically, these scanners can also integrate with Seraphim Teller. However, Seraphim officially integrates with the Canon Cr-50. Please note that Seraphim cannot guarantee the functionality or compatibility of these scanners. You can check with Seraphim Support to see if your current scanner may be compatible. In the end, testing is always necessary to make sure that your scanner works correctly with Seraphim Software.
