• Alaris wins 2018 Scanner Line of the Year Award for third consecutive time

        • Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab (BLI) has honoured Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, with the BLI 2018 Scanner Line of the Year award. The accolade is awarded annually to the vendor whose product line is determined to be the best overall, with models at every level that excel in BLI’s rigorous two-month laboratory evaluations.

          To determine the Scanner Line of the Year award recipient, BLI analysts consider current scanners in the OEM’s line that have been submitted to BLI’s lab for testing. To judge the overall quality of the line, the analysts look at the overall rating a scanner received after testing, as well as the ratings in key categories such as reliability, productivity, media handling, image quality, ease of set-up, drivers/utilities, OCR performance and value.

          Jamie Bsales, Director, Workflow Solutions at BLI said, “BLI’s testing and analysis have shown that Alaris delivers a line packed with intelligent, automated features that help businesses optimise the way they integrate paper-based information into their mission-critical workflows. This, plus the lab-proven reliability of Alaris scanners, has earned the global solution provider BLI’s prestigious Scanner Line of the Year award for the third consecutive year and the fourth time overall.”

          In addition to the Line of the Year award, Alaris was honoured with three other awards in BLI’s Winter 2018 Picks season for devices tested in the preceding six months. The Alaris S2000 Series was chosen by BLI analysts as winner of a Winter 2018 Pick for Outstanding Departmental Scanner, the Kodak i3300 Scanner won a Pick as Outstanding Light Production Scanner, and the Alaris Passport Flatbed Accessory was recognised with an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award.

          Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Vice President Global Marketing, Alaris added, “Alaris has a rich legacy of helping businesses manage digital transformation. Being recognised by the analysts at Buyers Lab for our imaging science expertise is always gratifying and humbling. This time is significant because it’s the first set of awards for our flagship Alaris S2000 Series Scanners. These new devices represent the future of intelligent connected capture and are a core element of the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem. The name is new but our Alaris line of scanners are built with the same unwavering commitment to productivity, reliability and quality that our customers and partners have depended on for decades. The Alaris brand stands for innovation and an unrelenting drive to make business more agile and efficient.”
