Kodak Alaris unveils Information Capture “Ecosystem”

Kodak Alaris has announced a series of scanner, software, and service enhancements featured in the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem, described as a powerful combination of best-in- class scanners, software, services and partnerships designed to transform data chaos into critical information to drive efficiency.

Specifically, Kodak Capture Pro and Info Input Express Software, when combined with Alaris scanners, offer new, intelligent capabilities including:

  • Intelligent Exception Processing - ensures immediate validation of forms so any missed information at the point of transaction is identified and fixed, resulting in better customer interactions and greater potential to drive revenue.
  • Intelligent Barcode Reading - produces the most accurate data extraction results and takes complexity out of the setup process.
  • Intelligent Job Select - takes advantage of specific patch code separator sheets to automate job switching and profiles. This enhances productivity by minimising downtime between jobs.


The Info Input Solution portfolio also introduces an HTML5 Client solution in addition to the current Java Script option. This gives users another choice when selecting the right solution for their unique IT environment and security needs.

On the Services side, the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem will offer individually configurable repair and maintenance, as well as providing professional services like configuration, training and consultation designed to better optimise and streamline capture processes.

For hardware, the Kodak i4000 Series Scanners now offer the addition of metal detection, extending this capability from the top of the line i5000 Series. Detecting and preventing metal such as staples or paper clips from entering the scanner reduces downtime and avoids damage to the scanner and documents.

These enhancements are available worldwide immediately.

Today, businesses and governments are overwhelmed with the exponential growth of data. According to a study conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers for Iron Mountain, 43 percent of companies obtain little tangible benefit from their information, while 23 percent derive no benefit whatsoever. The inability to efficiently capture information from paper-based documents and integrate with digital workflows leads to complexity and lost opportunity across organisations.

“Within this challenge lies a massive opportunity to drive growth and efficiency,” said Rick Costanzo, President and General Manager, Kodak Alaris Information Management. “Companies that master digital transformation are far better positioned to differentiate themselves from competitors and win in the marketplace.”

The question for most organisations is not whether to embrace digital transformation, but where to begin. “By combining our award-winning scanner portfolio, software and services, the Alaris IN2 Ecosystem makes it simple for organisations to begin extracting information from documents and integrating it into business processes,” says Costanzo.
