Kofax Makes Demo Deal with Kodak
Kofax, an information capture vendor, announced an agreement with Eastman Kodak Company to include a demo version of the Kofax Capio professional-strength document capture solution for desktop information management with KODAK i30 and i40 scanners, which are geared for customers in small offices or small-group applications within large organizations. Capio software enables individuals to better manage paper documents that can clutter their desks by quickly and easily scanning, storing, searching and retrieving them.
"Being included with Kodak's desktop scanners represents a terrific business opportunity to expand the worldwide reach for Capio software," Anthony Macciola, vice president of development and marketing at Kofax. "The coupling of Capio software with Kodak's new document scanners offers advanced imaging capabilities to a mostly untapped small-office audience."
"Our commitment to our customers is to provide best-in-class scanning solutions to fit their unique needs, and Capio software enables us to fulfill that objective for the desktop-scanning market," said Nancy Sherman, US&C Marketing Manager at Eastman Kodak Company. "This agreement further demonstrates the expanded integration of both companies' products as well as the leadership role that Kodak and Kofax share in the document-imaging industry."
Capio software uses Kofax's patented VRS technology to deliver superior image quality and eliminate the need to rescan documents. This exclusive feature automatically checks and adjusts alignment, brightness, contrast and image clarity, delivering near-perfect images and ensuring the maximum usability of the scanned documents. Capio software is designed to be easy for individual business users and small-office environments to set up "out of the box," without the IT resources that might otherwise be needed to install, train or support a larger document capture product.
Capio software will be available as a free demo-version download from a Kofax-hosted Web portal, named www.capioshop.com, to enable users to evaluate the product. When a user is ready to buy Capio software or when the evaluation period times out, a "Buy Now" button in the Capio software enables the user to access the capioshop.com portal to purchase the product.
