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.
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.

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all.
In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

And of course performance. All this should let you know which log shipper...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...
