Kodak Alaris makes scanners accessible anywhere using the power of IoT

|January 8, 2016 0

MUMBAI, INDIA: Kodak Alaris has partnered with Google to make it easier for users to connect to document scanning devices from any type of computing environment—mobile, desktop or cloud.

Last year, Google launched new Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, Brillo and Weave to enable easier device setup, phone-to-device-to-cloud communication, and user interaction from mobile devices and the web.

With the growth of cloud and web-based solutions, ease of integration with core business applications like ERP and CRM systems is critical. Connecting peripheral devices such as document scanners to apps that are cloud-based and mobile enabled is becoming essential.

For example, insurance companies have field agents focused on claims processing and customer acquisition, many of whom use network scanners for high-quality document capture. Development on Google’s Weave platform, supported by TWAIN Direct, makes it possible to provide agents with a secure and consistent user experience across multiple connected devices—from the field, to the home office, to the work environment—integrating scanning into a web-connected world at the touch of a button. It also empowers app developers to seamlessly integrate with Kodak Alaris scanners.

“Weave provides the building blocks to connect directly or through the cloud by providing a common language for apps or services to use across multiple devices,” said John. “This leads to faster adoption of new technologies and lower implementation costs. It also makes document capture at the point of customer contact and onboarding information into a business process more efficient, ultimately improving responsiveness to customers,” said Susheel John, Category Director, Distributed Capture for Kodak Alaris’ Information Management division.

Google is featuring the Kodak Scan Station networked scanner, among other web-connected “smart home” technologies, in its exhibit at the CES 2016.
