Updates to the KODAK Scan Station 500 help businesses of all sizes achieve greater productivity, efficiency and cost savings with networked document scanning. With enhanced daily duty cycles of 3,000 scans, the Scan Station 500 enables users to capture larger volumes of documents in a working day. Another new feature, remote network administration, makes it easier for IT professionals to manage the applications and settings of multiple scanners from offsite locations—offering a scalability factor "first" for KODAK networked scanners.
"Enhanced functionality for the Scan Station 500 helps businesses achieve better efficiency through a multi-functional, easy-to-use networked scanning solution," said Budd Webster, Business Director, Scanners, Document Imaging, Kodak. "Government agencies and offices, financial firms, health care facilities, SMBs and other organizations are all examining ways to help their employees work smarter, faster and stronger, to generate a more productive day. At the same time, IT managers in these same companies are seeking solutions for keeping costs low in hardware administration tasks, especially across multiple locations. With the new Scan Station 500 upgrades, businesses can effectively meet both of these requirements."
The increased daily volume capacity enables the Scan Station 500 to help businesses process larger projects, effectively completing more tasks in a single day. As a networked scanner, the Scan Station 500 saves on costs by eliminating the need for additional PC hardware and software purchases. The scanner essentially serves as a centralized hub for routing documents into network locations, FTP servers, fax, USB drives, networked printers and other external destinations.
With remote administration capabilities added into the Scan Station 500, IT managers and other technicians can more easily perform regularly scheduled, specific maintenance tasks associated with troubleshooting and installations from an off-site location. This may be especially beneficial to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) with limited IT support staffs, and offers additional scalability to larger organizations that deploy a number of networked scanners.
The new upgrades build upon the platform of the original Scan Station 500. Equipped with Kodak's exclusive Voice Attachment feature, the scanner enables users to easily send personalized audio messages alongside their scanned images, for consistent, clear communications. The Scan Station 500 has exceptional image integrity with Kodak's exclusive Perfect Page Image Processing Technology, and offers segment leading ease of use through its eight inch LCD color touch screen with an intuitive graphical user interface. Available accessories include tethered A3 or A4 flatbed scanners and a tactile keyboard. The U.S. list price for the Scan Station 500 is $2,495.
