Rochester, N.Y. and Rockville, Md. (PRWEB) September 11, 2006
Eastman Kodak Company, a leader in document imaging, and Notable Solutions, Inc. (NSi), a leading provider of distributed content capture workflow solutions, announce that the recently introduced KODAK Scan Station 100 is now fully integrated with NSi’s Distributed Capture Workflow Software, AutoStore.
The KODAK Scan Station 100 is an office walkup network device that quickly and easily turns paper documents into digital files with the touch of a button for simultaneous sharing via email, storing on the network, routing to networked printers and copiers, and saving on portable USB drives—all without using a computer. It connects to existing network infrastructure and features intuitive and interactive operations—including image preview of scanned images prior to sharing—from a full-color, easy to use, touch screen. The Scan Station was recognized for its innovation with the “Best of
Show” award from a field of more than 200 products at FOSE, the premier government technology tradeshow in March of 2006 in Washington, D.C.
NSi’s award winning Distributed Content Capture Workflow platform, AutoStore, provides customers with a proven, rules-based capture workflow solution for capturing, processing and routing content to a wide variety of business applications, databases and document management systems including Documentum, FileNet, AplicationXtender, Captaris Alchemy, Domino.Doc, Hummingbird, Interwoven / iManage, IXOS / OpenText, Lotus Notes/Domino, Lan Fax, Microsoft Exchange, OnBase, Opentext Microsoft SharePoint, SMTP Email Sending / MS Exchange Mailbox, and others.
AutoStore offers the flexibility to capture and process documents, along with security features that ensure information accuracy and accountability, while increasing staff productivity. Through the use of AutoStore, documents can be captured from MFPs/copiers, desktop applications, emails, faxes and many other sources. Once captured, they are processed using one of AutoStore’s process components such as OCR, barcode recognition, or forms recognition. Finally, documents are indexed and routed directly into the business application or database.
Now users can simply walk to a Scan Station 100, invoke any of AutoStore workflow features directly from the touch screen to save and index their documents with a single click using one of the following methods:
- Direct Connection to a workflow hot folder, whereby a soft key is created pointing to a monitored hot workflow folder; once documents are scanned, the workflow is initiated.
- Direct Connection using an email alias such as Invoices@ACME.com, where a soft key can be created pointing to that email box. Once documents hit the email, a specific workflow gets initiated.
- Using R2 SMARTickets, where the index information is pre-printed on a SMART Routing Ticket, and then scanned by the device as part of a document.
“Integration with NSi’s AutoStore Software gives customers who use AutoStore technologies on their networks the ability to quickly connect the Scan Station 100 to existing capture workflows," said Roger Markham, Product Marketing Manager for Distributed Capture Products, US&C, Document Imaging, Graphic Communications Group, Eastman Kodak Company. “NSi is joining other independent software vendors who are enlarging the circle of choice available to customers through software integration certification for the Scan Station 100 with its AutoStore Software.”
“We are pleased to work together with Kodak,” said Ali Tehranchi, President and founder of NSi. “Through this integration, users of KODAK Scan Station 100 can improve productivity by being able to walk to their device, click on a single button and scan documents into their business application. Using AutoStore and KODAK devices, IT administrators can easily maintain full control over business related capture workflows from a centralized location while end users can save time collaborating and communicating by turning paper into digital documents.”
The KODAK Scan Station 100 is available through the company’s channel partners. In addition, there are a variety of service agreement offerings available, delivered by KODAK Service & Support, the benchmark service provider for the document imaging industry. NSi’s AutoStore technology is available through NSi and its certified value added resellers worldwide.
