4 MEA MARKETS / October 2017 NEWS , Kodak Alaris Shines Spotlight on Information Capture Ecosystem at GITEX Technology Week 2017 Kodak Alaris is expanding its information capture ecosystem, delivering on the promise of digital transformation for organizations in the Middle East and around the world. Expanding its infor- mation capture eco- system, Kodak Alaris is delivering on the promise of digital trans- formation for organizations in the Middle East and around the world. At GITEX Technology Week 2017, the global solution provider will ex- pand the previously announced Ala- ris IN2 Ecosystem by unveiling the Alaris S2000 Series Scanners – a new family of network/wireless and USB connected desktop devices – and showcase its award-winning software and services, which are designed to take the complexity out of information capture and improve the way people work. Information Capture: Corner- stone of DigitalTransformation In a recently published white paper, IDC reports that digitizing, auto- mating, and optimizing document workflows offer compelling benefits to organizations, including, on aver- age, a 35% reduction in costs, 42% reduction in paper documents, and 52% reduction in errors. “Manual processes present an unnecessary hurdle to creating transparency and efficiency for organizations,” said Siddhartha Bhattacharya, Vice President, Global Marketing, Ala- ris Information Management. “Any paper-based process such as loan requests or driver’s licence applica- tions must be digitized to facilitate sharing and reduce risk. Digital capture of paper documents is an essential first step toward achieving this.” IN2 Ecosystem Offers Powerful Solutions The Alaris IN2 Ecosystem will be the focus of the booth at GITEX. Alaris launched its ecosystem earli- er this year to help remove complex- ity from information capture. Now, the next wave of the IN2 Ecosystem offers new features and tight inte- gration between scanners, software and services. The headliner at GITEX is the Ala- ris S2000 Series Scanner, which increases productivity by automat- ing much of the work traditionally done by people and host comput- ers. Embedded Image Processing within the scanner delivers crisp, high-quality images without requir- ing a host PC.
