Silver Bullet History
Silver Bullet Technology software and solutions have come to serve as the de facto standard for financial
institutions under the leadership of chief executive officer and founder Bryan Clark. Prior to founding
Silver Bullet Technology in 1997, Clark was an item processing application developer for seven years.
During that time, he developed OS/2-based CAR software using neural network technology.
Clark founded Silver Bullet Technology in 1997, and began providing contract application development
services to companies in the item processing industry. Over the next two years, Silver Bullet made its
mark by assisting in the design of NCR's WiseIP interface, writing WiseIP software for NCR to drive
779X transports, and providing WiseIP training to NCR support group and resellers. During that time,
Silver Bullet also collaborated with NCR and developed its first product— a 7780 simulator. That
product, now known as IP Simulator™, is currently being used
by most NCR resellers in the United States, making NCR Silver Bullet's largest customer.
In 2000, Silver Bullet developed and released Ranger® for NCR
and Unisys transports. Just one year later, Ranger was released for Panini S1 Vision series, SEAC RDS
6000 and 3000, and BancTec E-Series sorters. Silver Bullet also released another product in 2001—
the first version of Bullet OCR.
Silver Bullet furthered industry knowledge in 2002 by releasing a report comparing CAR/LAR engines, and
continued to release products throughout the year. Ranger was enhanced to support Panini MyVision X,
20 and 50 transports, and an advanced version of Bullet OCR was developed using a patented Silver Bullet
technology. Most notably, Silver Bullet developed and released several brand new products.
Sidewinder was introduced for A2iA, Parascript, IBM CAR/LAR, Orbograph, Mitek and Unisys SoftCAR+ engines.
Silver Bullet partnered with Panini NA and CheckTech to create the reject repair product
MICR Mend and MICR Patch. Silver Bullet also partnered with Unisys and
Firstar/US Bank to develop Chameleon, a product that allows Unisys applications to run unchanged on
Silver Bullet continues to provide critical tools, applications, and services to support check truncation
in the United States. For the years ahead, Silver Bullet is working to ensure that all transports are
sold with the Ranger interface.
