KODAK i6000 Series Check Scanners Feature Silver Bullet's Ranger Software; New Software Broadens Compatibility of KODAK Check Sc
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 13, 2006--Today at The Association for Work Process Improvement (TAWPI) Forum & Expo, Eastman Kodak Company, a leader in document imaging, and Silver Bullet Technology, a leader in Check 21 data and image tools, announced that Kodak is bundling Silver Bullet's Ranger(R) API with its i6000 Series Check Scanners. KODAK i6000 Series Check Scanners convert paper checks into high-quality digital images. They are deployed in such consumer-facing environments as retail point of sale, bank teller lanes and in general back-office operations which are taking advantage of efficiencies gained from the federal Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act--known as Check 21--that removed barriers to electronic check processing.
Ranger allows clients to use virtually any item or check processing software with any check scanning hardware. It has become the de facto software tool for item processing applications, enabling most users to upgrade check scanners without having to replace their current software solution.
"As the number of banks, companies and government institutions implementing Check 21 solutions continues to grow, having a check scanning application that is virtually plug-and-play and instantly compatible--right out of the box--with other software used for item processing will help these customers grow easier and quicker in terms of upgrades to their systems," said Andy Lawrence, worldwide solutions business manager, Document Imaging, Graphic Communications Group, Eastman Kodak Company. "KODAK i6000 Series Check Scanners gain a great amount of flexibility by including this software from being easily incorporated into existing solutions and to making deployment of new check scanning solutions straightforward and simple. Here is yet another reason for customers to consider Kodak check scanners in implementing their Check 21 solutions."
"We are pleased to partner with a name instantly recognizable in worldwide markets," said Sonia Livingston, president of Silver Bullet. "Kodak's check scanners allow financial institutions to offer solid, quality and cost-effective scanners in their more demanding business customer environments."
KODAK check scanners, software, and services are available through the company's Premier Solutions Resellers. Rounding out the offering is Kodak's complete portfolio of check processing software and professional services. This permits customers to remotely capture deposits and payments and supports the smooth delivery of the product into a customer's environment--including site inspections, installation of hardware and software, consulting services, software customization, and product training. Additionally, there are a variety of service agreement offerings, delivered by KODAK Service & Support, the benchmark service provider for the document imaging industry.
