Visitors to Kodak's booth at the 2009 ARMA International Conference and Expo will gain insight into the latest document imaging technology available for converting a paper-based archive into a more accessible and automated digital record system. Kodak enables organizations with critical records needs, such as healthcare and government, to increase information efficiency and ROI with a choice of scalable IT solutions. Kodak's experts will provide live product demonstrations in booth # 911 throughout ARMA '09, from Oct. 15-17 in Orlando.
According to a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers, businesses and organizations in the United States contribute to the annual growth of more than 4 trillion paper documents in existence. A call for stronger compliance and disaster recovery strategies increases the urgency for electronic records solutions to replace paper-based processes. Kodak's technology and its network of value-added resellers (VARs) help various organizations establish a digital document infrastructure to preserve information for maximum accuracy and accessibility. Existing users include NASA, the GSA, the Massachusetts State Registry of Deeds, and other local and state government agencies.
'More than ever, it's important to recognize the critical role that electronic information plays in advancing the capabilities of a business or organization,' said Roger Markham, Product and Channel Marketing Manager, US&C, Document Imaging, Kodak's Business Solutions and Services Group. 'The combined ability to preserve these digital records over a long period of time, as well as access to information on-demand, establishes a very strong foundation.' Kodak's booth showcases the advantages of combining capture hardware and software technology to help to create an effective capture and preservation platform. For example, KODAK Capture Pro Software, v 2.0, a full-featured software application with open compatibility for third-party scanners, as well as Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), makes it easier to input, validate and populate index fields. Kodak will demonstrate the software with its KODAK i780 Scanner and KODAK i1860 Scanner. Kodak will also display Capture Pro Software with a BOWE BELL + HOWELL Ngenuity Scanner. BOWE BELL + HOWELL Scanners are now a part of Kodak.
Archiving capabilities of the new KODAK i9600 Series Application Software will be demonstrated with the KODAK i750 Scanner, a hybrid capture and preservation solution that converts digital files such as PDF, PDF/A and MICROSOFT WORD documents to microfilm archival storage. The KODAK i9600 Series Application Software integrates seamlessly with virtually any scanner, making it easy for channel partners to customize solutions that meet long term (>500 years) regulatory and compliance requirements, without concern of system or software obsolescence. This makes it an ideal archiving partner for any digital storage system.
Kodak will also demonstrate its KODAK Scan Station 500 and KODAK i1320 Plus Scanner. The Scan Station 500, a networked scanner device, will be on display with a new user-friendly keyboard that extends the scanner's ability to quickly and easily share digital information from a single machine. Other capabilities include its exclusive Voice Attachment feature that allows users to send digital files with an audio message. The KODAK i1320 Plus Scanner will demonstrate Kodak's Smart Touch feature, which allows document sharing and distribution with the press of a single button.
'Kodak's broad portfolio of capture hardware and software allows us to create scalable solutions that include hybrid capabilities for film-based archiving, as well as digital access,' said Robert Breslawski, ImageLink Media and Equipment Portfolio Manager, Document Imaging, Kodak's Business Solutions and Services Group. 'Kodak continues to work with its channel partners to help customers strengthen their capabilities for enhancing control over critical information from paper-based documents.'
