Double Data Entry indexing and automated image enhancement tools are among the latest features of the newest version of KODAK Capture Pro Software. Advanced capabilities of Capture Pro Software v4.0 build upon Kodak’s award-winning image capture platform and enable businesses to ensure even greater accuracy, efficiency and cost-effectiveness within their document-based processes. The software fits easily into departmental, production batch- and transaction-level workflows for a wide range of applications such as accounts receivable, claims processing and back-file conversion.
“Kodak continues to expand its entire capture portfolio to help our channel partners strengthen their competitiveness and to drive the continued innovation of our customers’ business processes. Our software remains a significant part of that aim,” said Tony Barbeau, Kodak’s General Manager of Document Imaging. “The improvements found in Capture Pro Software v4.0 are practical, yet powerful. Each feature contributes to greater consistency and quality, which helps to eliminate the expense of errors and generate additional time and cost savings.”
Data indexing is a key part of many jobs or business processes. Capture Pro Software’s new Double Data Entry indexing feature enables “double blind” entry of index data by two separate operators. This method compares the inputs and prompts for a correction if needed to prevent indexing errors and ensure data integrity. Expanded Database Look Up capabilities support lookup on one or two key index fields, which enables users to populate fields faster and more accurately from Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) sources.
Upgrades to Intelligent Quality Control (QC), a core component of Capture Pro Software’s imaging enhancement capabilities, include deskew and auto-crop. Intelligent QC is capable of optimizing images from both KODAK Scanners and other sources such as MFPs and other manufacturers’ scanners. Users can apply image enhancements even when original documents are unavailable. Improved image quality, coupled with automated detection features, help users enable better accuracy and readability. These benefits contribute to improved downstream recognition for enterprise document management applications.
The output capabilities of Capture Pro Software v4.0 focus on flexibility and security. Users can simultaneously output documents to a range of file formats including file, system, email and print. An expanded PDF output function includes file protection via password encryption as well as support for both Fast Web View and documents longer than 200 inches.
Capture Pro Software also includes comprehensive integration with MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT Server and other ECM systems. The image capture software is capable of importing index configurations from a wide array of column types found within SHAREPOINT Applications.
A single interface provides users with a familiar set of imaging tools, which help businesses save on training costs and avoid complications and inconsistencies via shared settings for multiple users. No per-click or volume charges keep operation costs low and predictable. This unified approach allows users to customize for specific job and user management requirements with individual application programming interfaces (APIs).
An available Network Edition helps users centrally manage multiple capture and indexing stations to achieve process speed, consistency and data integrity. Administrators can also use the Network Edition to gain enhanced insight into status, throughput and performance-based metrics.
The Auto Import Edition of Capture Pro Software helps businesses automatically import existing image files and associated metadata from shared hot folders on a network. Imported files could include faxes or image file email attachments that have been saved to the network folder. Imported image and data files benefit from the same image enhancements, indexing tools and output capabilities as a scanned image.
