Kodak Alaris is expanding its document capture portfolio with the launch of a new line of low-volume production scanners and a refresh of its web-based capture software. The new scanners and software are scalable to meet rapidly changing business requirements as organisations increase their focus on digital transformation.
Based on the i2900 and i3000 Series Scanners, the new Kodak S2085f and S3000 Series offer network connectivity and a better user experience. New models include the 85 pages per minute (ppm) Kodak S2085f Scanner (A4 paper size) and the 100 ppm Kodak S3100f Scanner (A3 paper size). Both of these models are equipped with integrated flatbeds to easily capture information from business cards to books and more. Also, new to the Kodak Alaris portfolio are the 60 ppm Kodak S3060 Scanner, the 100 ppm Kodak S3100 Scanner, and the 120 ppm Kodak S3120 Scanners, which are all A3 scanners.
Lee Davis, Associate Director, Scanner Analysis and Software Evaluation for Keypoint Intelligence said, “most businesses have a strong desire to automate business processes to save time and eliminate mistakes. But when it comes to automating certain kinds of processes, like those where paper-based information needs to be entered into a digital process, things get tricky. The new scanners and software from Kodak Alaris simplify this intersection, providing customers with an automated portal for integrating paper-based information into digital workflows and archives.”
When purchasing Info Input Solution, customers can now choose what cloud engine to use for data extraction and indexing: Google Vision AI, Amazon Recognition, or Microsoft Azure AI. The cloud engines use optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent character recognition (ICR) to capture and translate handwritten characters on structured forms.
Don Lofstrom, President & General Manager, Alaris division of Kodak Alaris said, “document capture is the critical first step to automating paper-based business processes. Too many organisations are frustrated by bottlenecks created by inefficient scanners and software that slow down business processes and increase costs. Removing unnecessary manual intervention when processing data is key to saving time and money and ensures valuable information flows seamlessly into business systems.”
Whether scanning to archive or directly to a business process, scanners and software from Kodak Alaris are ideal for industries including healthcare, government, financial services, education and logistics as well as horizontal applications such as mailrooms, human resources, finance and records management.
