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.
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.

WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications. As WebRTC has become more mainstream it has evolved to use cases beyond the original peer-to-peer case, which has led to a repeating requirement for interoperability with existing infrastructures.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
