"We continue to help the document imaging industry meet the growing demand for distributed document scanners, driven by businesses seeking ways to reduce costs, improve productivity and mitigate risk," said Tony Barbeau, Vice President, Marketing, Document Imaging, Business Solutions and Services, Kodak. "The Plus Series Scanners introduce new levels for the accuracy and usability of scanned information immediately at the point of capture."

According to a recent report from Moyse Technology Consulting (MTC) the North American document scanner market grew by seven percent in 2008, with a considerable rise for the distributed capture category. The study also reveals the strategic significance of using document imaging to automate paper processes and streamline office operations.

The new enhancements of the Plus Series Scanners build upon Kodak's existing Smart Touch features, designed to more easily send documents to a variety of destinations. With the press of a single button, users can send scanned documents to third party applications, shared network drives, USB drives and networked output devices. Third party connectivity includes rich, seamless integration with MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT Server. This capability automates the process of scanning, sharing and storing digital documents within the popular content management application.
