Kodak's Latest Scanners Can Now Send Images Directly into Cabinet NG’s Document Management and Workflow Software
ROCHESTER, NY - Eastman Kodak Company, a leader in document imaging, and Cabinet NG, Inc., a leader in document management and workflow software for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced that Cabinet NG, Inc. has certified its document management software for use with the KODAK Scan Station 100 and KODAK i1200/i1300 Series Scanners.
Businesses confronting the challenge of matching product and software features and requirements to implement an automated workflow process can now find peace of mind knowing that KODAK and Cabinet NG Products are certified compatible across multiple scanning platforms. Certification includes meeting an assortment of scanning tests for image acquisition and data transfer, image quality, simplex and duplex mode operation, and enhanced functionality tests such as automated workflow and full text search of scanned PDF documents.
The KODAK Scan Station 100 is a network scanner that quickly and easily turns paper documents into digital files with the touch of a button that can be simultaneously shared via email, stored on the network, sent to networked printers and copiers, and saved on portable USB drives—all without a computer. It connects to existing network infrastructure and features intuitive and interactive operation—including image preview of scanned images prior to sharing—from a full-color touch screen.
The i1200 and i1300 Scanner Series offer maximum capability and flexibility for any paper intensive environment including finance, accounting, insurance, corporate, healthcare, education, transportation, law offices, government agencies—indeed any organization looking to streamline its paper workload. The i1200 Series is designed for workgroup applications with a scanning speed of 30 pages per minute, while the i1300 is aimed at departmental level usage with up to 60 pages per minute in black-and-white, grayscale and color.
Users can scan documents and initiate workflows in a single process using Cabinet NG's Shared Access Filing Environment (CNG-SAFE) filer interface. The comprehensive, yet simple to use, CNG-SAFE filer interface also gives the user a complete set of options that include setting document security levels, choosing what cabinet, folder, and folder tab the document will be stored, setting a retention policy, and using template driven naming templates.
The Kodak/Cabinet NG combination also adds the flexibility of separating the scanning, filing and workflow functions across multiple users. For example, scanning personnel could prepare and scan documents in batches, allowing knowledge workers to manage the filing and workflow process using the CNG-Batch interface.
Cabinet NG's recently enhanced content search feature performed effortlessly with the searchable PDF files that all these scanners support. Searchable PDF completes the arsenal of tools the user has to quickly locate information in Cabinet NG. Searchable PDF files make it possible to locate a misfiled scanned image using full text search and then move it to its proper location or to locate specific documents based on content for research, audit, or other similar processes where collection of documents based on content is critical.
Cabinet NG's document management software stops paper pileups at the source. By creating secure electronic file cabinets, existing labor-intensive and error-prone paper-based processes are transformed into efficient business workflows. Cabinet NG solutions are used in many vertical industries and are typically first deployed in the accounting process. The company's CNG-SAFE and CNG-Books, an integrated solution for Intuit's QUICKBOOKS Financial Software, recently received the "2007 Awesome QUICKBOOKS Add-On" award by the Sleeter group. Cabinet NG's document management software is also compatible with several popular office applications including MICROSOFT OFFICE, OUTLOOK and Sage's ACT! customer relationship management software.
"Cabinet NG understands the importance of solving the end-to-end problem of paper-based workflows," said Roger Markham, Product Marketing Manager for Distributed Capture Products, US&C, Document Imaging, Graphic Communications Group, Eastman Kodak Company. "With this recent round of certification, Cabinet NG enlarged the circle of choice and features available to customers for deploying KODAK Series Scanners with CNG-SAFE Software".
"Our long-term partnership with Kodak continues to bring new value to our customers. Being compatible with Kodak's latest products means businesses can benefit from technology advancements without the risk of adding an unknown to their environment," said Andrew Bailey, President of Cabinet NG.
