Alaris, a Kodak Alaris business, has enhanced its S2000 Scanner Series with the new S2040 desktop scanner. The company is also offering partners greater flexibility with the launch of a new software subscription model, providing resellers with the opportunity to secure a new recurring revenue stream, and access to professional services capabilities which will help their customers extend the advantage of owning an Alaris scanner.
Designed for efficiency and backed with a three-year warranty, the Alaris S2040 Scanner delivers all the embedded image processing power of the S2050 and S2070 Scanners or customers who want a more affordable option. Available now at an RRP of £576, this new desktop device is suitable for vertical markets including healthcare, logistics, banking, education and government.
The new S2040 is capable of processing 40 pages-per-minute/80 images-per-minute, with scanning speeds maintained by real-time processing within the scanner. The device can handle various documents from business cards to legal size and features an 80-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). It also supports the Alaris Passport Accessory and the Integrated A4/Legal Size Flatbed Accessory for more efficient scanning.
Easy operation via a full colour graphic display provides powerful and flexible scanning for office workers, healthcare professionals and customer service staff. The S2040 supports barcode reading in the box, delivering accurate read results every time, and features the latest Alaris Perfect Page technology. Perfect Page technology provides state-of-the-art capabilities for image enhancement, ensuring clean, crisp, images even for very challenging documents and mixed document batches.
The S2040 is bundled with Smart Touch Software. Smart Touch functionality eliminates multi-step scanning processes, providing users with one-touch simplicity. It’s possible to configure up to twenty different functions to suit specific scanning needs, enabling users to quickly perform common tasks as well as easily scan a document to a file location or common cloud service.
Alaris has also expanded its portfolio to provide several convenient and affordable new options for purchasing its information capture solutions. Alaris Capture Pro Software and Alaris Info Input Solution are now available as one-year subscriptions in addition to existing perpetual licensing options.
Resellers can also tap into a team of Alaris analysts, consultants and trainers who have a wealth of image science expertise and are committed to delivering technical and operational support to help end-users plan, upgrade and optimise their document capture solution. Professional Services are designed to extend the advantage of owning a scanner from Alaris.
Earlier this year, Alaris won Buyers Lab’s Scanner Line of the Year Award for a third consecutive year. Lee Davis, Editor for Scanners and Solutions at BLI said, “the Alaris S2040 Scanner offers fast and reliable scanning, versatile media handling, and intelligent, automated features to simplify scanning and optimise business processes. Alaris continues to set the standard for what a scanner needs to be in the age of digital transformation.”
