For the second consecutive year, Kodak Alaris’ Information Management division has earned the 2017 Scanner Line of the Year award from Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI). This award recognises the manufacturer whose line of devices is complete enough to meet varied customer needs and whose current portfolio has fared best overall in BLI’s rigorous lab-based evaluations.
As well as the Scanner Line of the Year Award, the EasySetup feature from Kodak Alaris received an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award, which acknowledges products or capabilities that stand out for attributes such as innovation, usefulness, energy efficiency or value, and both the Kodak i5650 Scanner and Kodak Info Input Solution 4.0, won Winter 2017 Pick awards. According to BLI, the breadth of Kodak Alaris’ scanner portfolio is ‘indisputable’ and the models tested turned in impressive results when evaluated for specific attributes, such as reliability, image quality, optical character recognition (OCR) accuracy and productivity.
Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Vice President of Global Marketing for Kodak Alaris’ Information Management Division said, “Kodak Alaris holds the most Pick awards out of any scanner manufacturer tested by BLI and winning the Scanner Line of the Year two years in a row is a significant achievement. These awards validate our commitment to providing an unmatched portfolio of information management solutions that enable customers to achieve digital transformation. The combination of our science, technology and partnerships acts as a force multiplier and provides the ecosystem required for companies large and small to use data to drive business efficiency, profitability and growth.”
BLI’s awards are based on a rigorous battery of lab tests. Evaluations include extensive durability tests where each unit is run at the manufacturer’s maximum duty cycle. A BLI award is a hard earned distinction that buyers and IT directors can trust to better guide them in their purchasing decisions.
