• Kodak Alaris announces global alliance with UiPath

        • Kodak Alaris has announced a global alliance with UiPath, a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company. The collaboration will enable both companies’ customers to leverage Kodak Alaris’ information capture solutions and UiPath software to accelerate digital transformation by automating and streamlining business processes. 

          The companies also introduced their integration via the Alaris Capture Pro to UiPath Orchestrator Connector, which provides a connection between fully indexed, high-quality images from Kodak scanners and UiPath bots. 

          RPA is said to be the key to working smarter. The alliance between UiPath and Kodak Alaris will generate new business opportunities for system integrators and software vendors, helping them expand RPA projects and deliver intelligent scanning and information capture solutions to customers in sectors including Government, Financial Services, Logistic and Healthcare. 

          RPA starts with usable data, which in turn starts with high-quality images. Perfect Page Technology from Kodak Alaris optimises the image quality of every page for more accurate information extraction and up to 20 per cent better OCR read rates, while Capture Pro Software quickly converts batches of paper into high-quality images - the foundation for accurate, streamlined data and decision-making.

          Vanilda Grando, Director Global Sales Development, Alaris division of Kodak Alaris said, “we are delighted to announce this global alliance with UiPath, whose software is among the leading tools for building RPA robots. Intelligent information capture combined with RPA is especially powerful for finance, IT and IT services, operations and information governance. The combination of Kodak Alaris scanners, software and services, with UiPath’s RPA platform will enable partners to take their customers’ information capture to the next level, making total automation and paper-free processes a business reality.” 

          The UiPath RPA platform automates sequences of repeatable processes, minimises disruption, uncovers efficiencies and provides insights, making the path to digital transformation fast and cost-effective. Once information is captured via the scanner, software robots complete repetitive, rules-based tasks such as moving files and folders, extracting structured data from documents and executing processes with it.

          George Roth, Senior Manager, Technology Alliances at UiPath added, “our two technologies complement one another. It’s not about taking people out of the loop, it’s about being able to reallocate them and bring them back in if needed. For example, you could set a threshold for OCR read rates at 90 per cent. If the RPA solution doesn't meet the 90 per cent threshold, the bot will send it to a human for review. So, there’s an opportunity to really make a good human-in-the-loop partnership.”
