KODAK i780 scanners and KODAK Capture Pro Software
“We want to double our turnover within two years”
~ Stéphane Horta, Allgeier ScanFactory Managing Director
The KODAK i780 scanners run with KODAK Capture Pro Software, the easy, affordable and efficient scanning & indexing software from Kodak.
"Not only do KODAK scanners have high scan capacity, they are also extremely reliable, which is key to ScanFactory profit, enabling delivery of accessible services to companies" says Jean-Luc Cremens, ScanFactory Sales Manager.
"KODAK Capture Pro Software helps us furthermore boost our productivity. The user-friendly software interface allows for immediate production, thus minimizing training needs. The familiarand intuitive workspace, no matter which job is being handled, or which scanner is running, allows for flexible operator sourcing, which is crucial to our business. And real-time visual quality checks are made easy with a customisable display from one to 36 images at the same time !"
ScanFactory actually turns KODAK Capture Pro features into successful sales opportunities. "The no-click charge is essential to our message to our customers", says Cremens. "Our customers know they will not pay more than the agreed fee if they add more pages - and keeping the integrity of the scanned document - including blank pages - is not a cost issue anymore."
"We intensively use the barcode reading feature, and actually win new businesses with the latest database look-up feature from KODAK Capture Pro, for customers needing a scanning solution at their premises, and who can now easily validate and populate index fields from connected databases, allowing for rich content and data integrity."
ScanFactory assists major health insurance companies such as DKV Belgium in processing quickly 35 000 files, and hospitals such as Groene Hart Ziekenhuis Gouda in scanning archives at the rate of 100 metres per week, with seamless access to information. "Logistics and technical flexibility are at the heart of our business, and we find this same commitment with KODAK Service & Support. Whenever we call Kodak we get a technical specialist on the phone who knows his job. From a software perspective, it is very reassuring to experience Kodak responsiveness in providing an advice or a patch, and its proactivity in releasing new Capture Pro features, at no additional cost, all embedded in the software assurance contract. I can't wait to see what new markets we will be able to address with the next release of KODAK Capture Pro!" says Cremens.
According to Horta, the KODAK scanners and software enable for easy operations at ScanFactory. "With Kodak we need not worry about our equipment and our productivity. They do the work. Their reliability enables us to focus on our growth ambitions. We want to double our turnover within two years."
