Friday, August 31, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
KODAK Info Activate Solution, a new distributed enterprise capture system, features a radically simple user interface that allows knowledge workers to simultaneously digitize paper documents and initiate a business process with a single click. The new solution provides businesses with the ability to manage paper documents with the speed and power of digital content, which helps to increase the efficiency of workflows, simplify metadata entry, and reduce processing costs.
Info Activate Solution is less complicated than traditional capture and enterprise content management (ECM) systems. As an application, built using Microsoft SharePoint 2010 as the development platform, Info Activate Solution allows businesses to leverage their existing investment in SharePoint. With Info Activate Solution, businesses can take full advantage of SharePoint technologies including thin-client operation, content libraries, business connectivity services, dashboards and third-party add-on technologies and modules. Info Activate Solution is available in the United States and Canada and will be available in other parts of the world shortly after.
“KODAK Info Activate Solution helps businesses eliminate the black hole of costs, time and resources associated with entering information from paper documents into SharePoint,” said Michael Frawley, CEO, Edge Digital Group. “What used to require customer investment throughout the year in specialized training for different technologies and tasks is now provided from a single solution that most users can learn within minutes.”
Edge Digital Group provides government and enterprise customers with solutions that help them use SharePoint and other electronic portals to improve processes related to document capture, information management and business workflows. The company has been an early adopter customer of Info Activate and is using the solution to enable more people across the organization to enter information into SharePoint. This helps to improve collaboration among Edge Digital team members and communication with customers using real-time information. The advanced capabilities of Info Activate Solution add efficiency and help Edge Digital ensure that the entered information goes to the right place at the right time on SharePoint, making it possible for a more streamlined user experience.
“Info Activate Solution helped us significantly eliminate training related to technical specifications such as image quality, file size, format type and location settings. It provides users with a level of comfort that was not previously achievable,” said Frawley. “For example, we sat down with an employee who had never been trained to scan and index paper documents for SharePoint. Info Activate Solution enabled the individual to complete training with a few simple clicks. We no longer need to train for days before working on large-scale, time-critical projects. We can get our teams up and scanning in minutes.”
Kodak will showcase Info Activate Solution at Kodak Global Directions, an educational conference, which will present technologies and best practices related to document management, collaboration, governance and business process automation. Product demonstrations will show how Info Activate Solution can help businesses shorten cycle times, improve information sharing, automate paper-based processes, manage distributed input and streamline workflows. Kodak will host the three-day event Sept. 24-26 at the JW Marriott Resort in Las Vegas.
“Info Activate Solution represents a significant milestone in Kodak’s expanding software portfolio,” said Tony Barbeau, Kodak’s General Manager for Document Imaging. “Its scalable framework will enable IT administrators and software developers to more easily design, deploy, and maintain an enterprise-wide capture system to support workforce collaboration.”
Easy and Complete Workflows
Simple Document Capture
Businesses can use any TWAIN-compliant device to capture images from their paper documents. Scanned images receive high-performance image processing from essential editing capabilities and built-in Kodak Perfect Page Technology. Users can also index documents by entering metadata into input fields during capture.
Total Information Management
Info Activate Solution functions inside SharePoint 2010 for tight integration, however, it also provides file output for use with other major ECM platforms. It can also output digital documents into common file formats including several types of PDFs, rich text or TIFF, and supports a wide variety of naming schemes.
Complete Support with Professional Services
“Customers with Info Activate Solution can rely on our service professionals and partners to align their businesses to the demands of a digitally-driven workforce,” said Barbeau. “Together, Info Activate Solution and Kodak’s service and support teams make it easier than ever for a business to implement a document management solution across their organization.”
