Kodak Alaris IN2 Ecosystem Helps Customers Improve Information Capture
Kodak Alaris has launched the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem, a combination of scanners, software, services, and partnerships, designed to help organizations extract information from documents to increase productivity and enhance customer experiences.
Citing research from PricewaterhouseCoopers and Iron Mountain showing that 43% of companies obtain little tangible benefit from their information, while 23% derive no benefit whatsoever, Kodak contends that the inability to efficiently capture information from paper-based documents and integrate it with digital workflows leads to lost opportunity across organizations.
To address the issue, Kodak’s Alaris IN2 Ecosystems, the company says, offers seamless integration into customer environments, simplifying information capture.
As part of the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem, Kodak Capture Pro and Info Input Express Software, when combined with Alaris scanners, have new, intelligent capabilities that increase productivity and improve customer experience, including Intelligent Exception Processing to ensure immediate validation of forms so any missed information at the point of transaction is identified and fixed. Additionally, Intelligent Barcode Reading produces accurate data extraction results and takes complexity out of the setup process, while Intelligent Job Select takes advantage of specific patch code separator sheets to automate job switching and profiles, enhancing productivity by minimizing downtime between jobs.
On the services side, the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem will offer "the right sized" repair and maintenance options for each customer, as well as provide professional services like configuration, training, and consultation to better optimize and streamline capture processes.
For hardware, the Kodak i4000 Series Scanners now offer customers metal detection, extending this capability from Kodak’s top of the line i5000 Serie, to help prevent metal such as staples or paper clips from entering the scanner reduces downtime and avoiding damage to the scanner and documents.
