Kodak is unveiling three new scanners with a heavy emphasis on cloud computing during FOSE this week at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center.
“Small and mid-sized government agencies or departments face tough challenges, and each new demand brings more technology demands,” said Tony Barbeau, Kodak’s general manager for document imaging. “With limited resources and tight compliance standards, organizations struggle to take on additional IT challenges,”
Kodak’s new application can “help the public sector overcome these barriers by making it easier to move their systems into the cloud,” he said.
The scanners will be on display at Booth 1210, and Kodak officials also will take part in a couple of informational sessions.
Kodak and Edge Digital Group will demonstrate Kodak’s Info Activate Solution, which helps IT administrators work directly within SharePoint to manage business process workflows and improve how knowledge workers input and organize documents from multiple sources. Edge Digital provides government and enterprise customers with digital solutions that allow them to use electronic portals to improve document processes and business workflows related to information capture and management.
Kodak will feature demonstrations of its document capture and management products on the show floor: KODAK Info Insight Platform, Kodak i5800 Scanner with Kodak Capture Pro Software and the Kodak i2900 Scanner supported by Smart Touch.
The i5800 Scanner’s ergonomic design offers a height adjustable transport , and the compact i2900 combines a robust rotary desktop scanner with a book edge flatbed scanner to provide greater versatility for offices that need to extract paper-based information and manage documents more efficiently.
