New KODAK i4000 Series Scanners Champion Process-Driven Document Capture for Businesses to Improve Efficiency, Cut Costs
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Mar. 1—Kodak today announced the KODAK i4000 Series Scanners, designed to help end users, especially those in small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs), cost-effectively automate document capture and management. The new capture platform of the i4000 Series Scanners combines walk-up ease of use, one touch scanning, comprehensive software capabilities and simplified integration within new or existing document management processes, for a complete information management solution.
The KODAK i4200 Scanner and KODAK i4600 Scanner will be available for demonstration with the new KODAK Capture Pro Software, v2.5, at CeBIT, March 2-6 in Hannover, Germany and at HIMSS10, March 1-4 in Atlanta. KODAK Capture Pro Software, v2.5, provides users with MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 OS compatibility, along with improvements to OCR capability, auto import and indexing to name a few. For more information, see accompanying release about KODAK Capture Pro Software.
The i4000 Series Scanners’ compact, ergonomic design makes it easier for average end users to effectively integrate document capture into new and existing information-driven business processes. Kodak’s Smart Touch functionality allows end users to send digital documents to common destinations including e-mail, desktop applications, shared file locations and MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT Server. The i4000 Series Scanners also provide flexible, dual-support for Kodak’s Perfect Page Image Processing Technology or KOFAX VRS Software.
“With so many SMBs still dependent on paper documents, the easy-to-use architecture of the i4000 Series Scanners represents a strategic first-step for any business working to remain competitive in the information economy,” said Tony Barbeau, General Manager, Document Imaging, Kodak’s Business Solutions and Services Group.
The i4200 Scanner and i4600 Scanner serve as true production-level entry points, able to process images of 200 dots per inch (dpi) bi-tonal scanning quality at rated speeds of 100 pages per minute (ppm) and 120 ppm, respectively. The i4000 Series are the smallest scanners in their class to offer a c-shape transport with additional straight-through paper path, 500-sheet feeder. In addition, the i4000 Series are the only scanners in their class to allow field speed and feature upgrades to adjust for growing volumes of documents and continuous enhancement of the solution.
"The KODAK i4600 Scanner has proven to be an extremely easy to use production scanner for both experienced operators and occasional users. It streamlines everything, even paper preparation, providing us with efficiency gains throughout our operation," said John Cauvel, Vice President of Information Systems, Lifetime Care. Lifetime Care, located in Rochester, N.Y., provides home care and hospice services to people residing in a five county area in Western New York State. "A lot of our work entails capturing multiple page non carbon, popularly called NCR forms for physician orders requesting home care. These thin, multi-page documents are often challenging to scan. The i4600, with its image enhancement and paper transport capabilities, has handled all without error."
The KODAK i4000 Series Scanners will be available for shipping in April 2010. The i4200 Scanner will be priced at $9,995 (U.S.), and the i4600 Scanner will be offered at $14,995 (U.S.). KODAK Service and Support will offer a number of service options, ranging from Next Business Day response to a 24 hour a day, seven days a week, four-hour on-site response.
