Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business is launching a new wave of network-connected scanning solutions aimed at tackling the most difficult pain points organisations face when onboarding information into line-of-business applications.
The Alaris INfuse Smart Connected Scanning Solution and the Kodak Scan Station 730EX Plus Scanner automate business processes by connecting document capture to existing business systems and the cloud. Benefits include fewer touchpoints and less human error, making the entire information capture process smarter and more efficient.
The Alaris INfuse Solution integrates directly with enterprise applications and enables customers to carry out tasks in hours which, in the past, may have taken days to complete. INfuse also offers an unprecedented opportunity for channel partners to engage with customers to streamline expensive business processes and quickly grow new revenue streams.
The inspiration for INfuse comes directly from channel partner and end-user feedback. Solution providers need cost-effective ways to install and manage a fleet of devices while helping enterprise customers efficiently and correctly onboard information into business processes.
Don Lofstrom, President & General Manager, Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business said, “exception handling and the opportunity for immediate corrective action is critical. Reconstructing and re-scanning documents are difficult and costly. Bi-directional communication enabled by Alaris APIs is a game-changer. It places INfuse in a category by itself – a smart, connected scanning solution with IoT capabilities for today’s information capture market.
Paul Szemplinski, Founder & CEO, Integrated Document Technologies, Inc. (IDT) added, “the Alaris INfuse Solution presents a tremendous opportunity to deliver value to our clients. It gives us a stronger solution set that will allow us to develop deeper relationships and become a different type of BPO. It’s unlike anything we've ever seen in our 26 years of doing business.”
To address these needs, the Alaris INfuse Solution includes three key components:
- Partner Software Application– An Alaris channel partner or solution provider (typically an ISV or Integrator) provides a cloud-based enterprise solution such as invoice processing, medical records management, or customer account management
- INfuse Management Software – end-users can scan a smart set-up sheet provided by the partner and they are up and running with no training required, which slashes upfront and ongoing management costs
- INfuse AX Scanner – A smart network scanning device requiring no PC or software/drivers that accurately and securely transfers data, metadata and finished image files directly into a business process
Also new from Alaris is the Kodak Scan Station 730EX Plus Scanner. The Scan Station 730EX Plus is an integrated network scanner that securely automates document capture and allows for fully finished files to be scanned directly into business processes. Like INfuse, the Scan Station is a network-connected solution that sits at the edge of workflows and operates in a wide range of customer environments. It offers embedded Windows 10 IOT Enterprise Operating System and network domain authentication for secure log-in.
