Pitney Bowes Teams Up with Kodak to Launch New Solutions
To help customers manage critical documents and information, Pitney Bowes, based in Tamford, Conn., is launching imaging and workflow solutions with Kodak. The solutions provide automated end-to-end workflow functionality, including document scanning, automatic indexing, secure storage, retrieval and integration into a single, central repository.
Ideal for environments including accounts payable, purchasing, order processing, receiving, human resources and legal, the Pitney Bowes Imaging and Workflow Solutions provide powerful opportunities for organizations to help increase operational efficiency, boost productivity and reduce costs.
“Paper documents are a fact of life in all organizations, but they have some disadvantages,” said Leslie Abi-Karam, executive vice president and president, mailing solutions management, Pitney Bowes. “Paper is not easily searchable, it is expensive to store and retrieve, and it is hard to associate the information on one document with the information on other documents. Through our collaboration with Kodak, our new Imaging and Workflow Solutions can help organizations solve these problems and become more productive at lower cost[s].”
Don McMahan, vice president sales, document imaging, US&C, Kodak, said, “Kodak is proud to collaborate with Pitney Bowes on its Imaging and Workflow Solutions to help provide businesses with instant increases in productivity and return on investment. As an important component of the solutions, Kodak document capture products will provide Pitney Bowes’ customers with accelerated scanning capabilities and industry-leading image quality.”
The Pitney Bowes Imaging and Workflow Solutions allow customers to easily capture business critical documents electronically and house them in a central, secure repository. Organizations can also establish business rules on how to capture information and who can access it with full audit trail accountability. End-users are empowered with secure, self-service document retrieval capabilities and information ownership.
To help simplify document management processes, customers can set up business parameters to handle paper-based documents as they arrive in their organization. Documents can be scanned with key words attached to them for future document retrieval or with built-in optical character recognition technology, which offers the ability to search all words in the document. Electronic files can be merged with other relevant electronic files into a single, central repository, offering holistic access to all pertinent information to a particular account or business situation.
