New wireless/network scanners from Kodak Alaris

The newest desktop scanners from Kodak Alaris – the Kodak ScanMate i1150WN and the Kodak i1190WN Scanners – provide wireless and network connectivity and are mobile app ready to support BYOD and mobility in the workplace.

The scanners are designed for business environments where employees need to quickly and easily share document capture devices. Users benefit from a control panel that offers custom commands and colour coded icons to make scanning quick and easy, while providing useful information to help avoid and resolve errors.

Additionally, the scanners enable seamless connectivity through the office network or over Wi-Fi for a variety of office environments including bank tellers, government agencies and hospital nursing stations. Equipped with standard drivers (TWAIN, ISIS), users can integrate with their existing and legacy business applications, eliminating extra steps in the capture process and complicated software installations, which helps reduce IT costs. IT administrators also have the ability to set security levels and disable wireless and mobile if needed, providing them with more efficient device management.

“Most wireless scanners are fine for individual users but they are not designed for sharing in a workgroup or connecting with business applications,” said Susheel John, Worldwide Category Director, Distributed Capture, Kodak Alaris Information Management.

“Our Wireless/Network Scanners offer the flexibility and versatility that users need to manage complex document processes. They also provide integration capabilities that allow organisations to invest in new software and applications to address the evolving needs of their business, while meeting the needs of legacy applications today.”

The ScanMate+ Mobile App lets users scan quickly and easily to a tablet or mobile phone from the i1150WN or i1190WN Scanner. The app also makes it convenient to share files via email and upload to cloud-based applications such as SharePoint, Box or Evernote. Organizations that prefer to scan files and documents using their own proprietary mobile app can integrate with Kodak Alaris scanners using the web application programming interface (API).

Distributed Capture in the Cloud

Cloud technologies are helping businesses, both big and small, lower their cost of IT implementation and deployment. “With more businesses moving applications to cloud-based systems, cloud and web-based applications can run on PCs with lower processing power, meaning businesses can avoid investing in expensive computers,” said John.

The i1150WN and i1190WN Scanners have built in image processing capabilities which lowers the PC power requirements, making them ideal for use with cloud or web-based capture applications like the Kodak Info Input Portfolio. Info Input makes capture faster, smarter, more secure and more productive. Software integrators can integrate directly to the scanners using the web API.

The i1150WN and i1190WN Scanners are now available in all regions. The ScanMate+ Mobile App is available for free to download via Apple iTunes Store and Google Play. For more information, visit
