With over 33 years of experience, you're in good hands.

Northwest Bank Technology was started in 1985, providing bank consulting, support, and custom programming for a number of institutions primarily using the (NCR/ACS) Banker product. In 1988 they began exploring the possibility of joining a Lundy MRS90 sorter with an NCR proprietary computer system. This system became known as MIPS (MICR Item Processing System).

As work continued the MIPS Core System became a full featured replacement for the NCR, IBM, and Unisys item processing systems of the time. With the advent of more powerful personal computers, MIPS became a PC based system and has followed the progression of hardware and windows software to become the product it is today.Northwest Bank Technology HeadquartersIn 1997 work began adapting the MIPS System to use the Unisys CAPI software to interface to the entire line of Unisys sorters, advancing us into the world of check imaging. From here we were able to expand our product offerings to include Image Statements, Home Banking Images, Internet Banking Images, Customer Statement CD's, CAR/LAR processing, etc.

In 2003 we began preparations for the upcoming Check 21 changes to the Federal Reserve System. We began to use the Canon line of scanners to facilitate the Branch Capture operations that Check 21 would allow. We now support the full complement of Check 21 products interfacing with the Federal Reserve and others. We currently have approximately 750 locations running our software. We fully support banks, credit unions, savings banks, and several other types of institutions including state treasurers, health insurance, county tax collections, home owner associations, and others.

Over the years we have worked with over 200 institutions throughout the country, providing excellent software products and support. We have provided host system support, custom programming solutions, MIPS System, and many other services to our customers. We are sure that this background will allow us to provide you the applications and services you may need in the future.
