  • Despite widespread adoption of document capture solutions[1], IT and operations managers in many mid-to-large sized enterprises with paper-based processes are still searching for solutions to boost efficiency and productivity in the ways they capture and manage information. Scanning and extracting data for use in business processes and exporting information into repositories can be a bottleneck with serious implications on the cost of back-office operations and customer satisfaction. “As organizations become increasingly dependent on e-business platforms to drive profitability, it’s clear that the remaining paper-based information must be managed more effectively,” said Harvey Spencer, President of Harvey Spencer Associates, a leading analyst firm in the capture software market. “The best way to do this is to convert paper to usable electronic information as fast as possible.”

    To address the increasing demand for fast, efficient capture solutions, Kodak Alaris is introducing KODAK Capture Pro Software v5.0, the next generation of award-winning software that enables businesses to accomplish greater accuracy, efficiency and cost effectiveness within their document scanning processes. Capture Pro Software v5.0 enables users to convert forms, invoices, records, and other critical business documents into high-quality images, delivering clear-cut benefits that simplify scanning, automate indexing and enable end users to streamline the process of transforming paper into information. Designed to meet demanding customer requirements, its advanced indexing capabilities automate data extraction and deliver critical information to ECM systems and Microsoft SharePoint, as well as business applications. “With Capture Pro Software v5.0, Kodak Alaris continues to make it quick and easy for end users to scan documents and index information, helping businesses save costs and improve productivity,” said Spencer.

  • As companies settle back into the swing of things in this new year, collaborative teams will look to create meaningful strategic plans to guide their actions for 2017. If this sounds good to you because this is what your company is doing, I applaud you. If these words were read with a snicker and perhaps confusion over why your company is not following this path, I'm certain you are not alone. Please read on for three areas to focus on that must be accounted for in your strategy.

  • Microsoft recently announced it is ending support for public facing sites for SharePoint Online (SPO) within Office 365. Although I was frustrated upon hearing the news, this made sense and in many ways was a predictable outcome for this feature. I personally had high hopes for this, but I understand actually building a multi-tenant, cloud-based SharePoint public-facing offering is quite difficult. Further, there was word that lack of usage may have contributed to the end-of-life announcement.

    • Fear.

    Fear of job loss. Fear of lack of security. Fear of regulatory violations. Fear of loss of work already done or feature functionality.
