In an automated system, the check request for can be fed or scanned into the automated system. The issue will be its validity. It will need to be routed (automatically) to an auditor, who will make sure the check req is for a legitimate reason, and not to pay for something that should actually have an invoice.
For commission payments, we recommend that they be automatically fed from the commission system and bypass the check req process altogether. The feed from the commission system would automatically generate a payment because it has already been approved in the commission system.
