New Central Scanning Solution Uses PC-Free Network Connectivity to Provide Easy Access to Work Teams

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - July 23, 2014) - A new line of network scanners from Kodak Alaris provides organizations with a central scanning solution that allows users to efficiently capture information from documents and route it into key business processes without the need for a dedicated PC. Until now, many organizations have been unable to automate some paper-based business processes because a PC isn't appropriate for the work location (e.g. employees in a particular department don't require PCs). In other instances, employees may have PCs but it's preferable that they are limited to performing specific tasks. The KODAK Scan Station 700 Series is ideal for either scenario.

The KODAK Scan Station 700 Series connects directly to a network and sends data to multiple destinations simultaneously, including network drives, printers, FTP sites, email, portable USB drives and Microsoft SharePoint. It is designed to meet the needs of small businesses or branch offices of larger organizations in a variety of industries, including healthcare, finance, legal, government, travel and insurance.

"The KODAK Scan Station is helping a bank enhance customer relations by allowing tellers to quickly capture documents and access core functions of their business application on the touch screen without leaving the customer," said Tony Barbeau, General Manager of Kodak Alaris' Document Imaging division. "The Scan Station also helped the bank meet stringent requirements for user interface and document transfer security. Plus, the integration capabilities allowed the bank to create and distribute a simple application to use on the Scan Station in all of its branches."

Unlike traditional scanners or other multifunction devices, the standalone Scan Station 700 (kodakalaris.com/go/ScanStation700news) integrates network connectivity and imaging functionality to make scanning more accessible in a shared environment. The large, easy-to-navigate touch screen offers a customizable, intuitive user experience that promises fewer user mistakes and a quicker path to proficiency. A remote administration utility allows administrators to manage, configure, and maintain multiple scanners from a single location.

In addition to the standard user interface of the Scan Station 700, the Scan Station 720 EX model extends the solution's feature set with an integration-friendly architecture. The 720 EX allows select Alaris partners to develop and install highly specialized business applications to automate information processes with even greater efficiency. Other unique features of the Scan Station 720 EX include a built-in fax modem and output to the KOFAX Front Office Server.

The Scan Station 720EX design allows third-party applications to add value to existing capture processes, offering a powerful, customizable approach to elevate end users' information management capabilities. Select partners can create these applications to easily look up projects, confirm deliveries, provide feedback and check the status of projects in the system, saving time and reducing administrative costs for the end user.

"Companies can save both time and money with the Scan Station 700 Series, which connects easily to other systems and is designed for either individual or multiple users. It advances the value proposition of document management by delivering many improvements across a variety of business processes," said Will Hebert, Kodak Alaris' Portfolio Business Manager for Document Imaging.

The Scan Station 700 and 720EX support additional accessories for greater versatility and ease of use, including the KODAK Scan Station Keyboard and Stand Accessory, the KODAK Legal Size Flatbed Accessory and the KODAK A3 Size Flatbed Accessory.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
